Locking up ethnic minority men helps children as it lowers the number of poor fathers, U.S. study finds

- A study by David Neumark, economics professor, is featured in the Daily Mail Reporter January 25, 2011
From the Daily Mail Reporter:
The research tracked the rising numbers of men from a 'minority' background in jail, and found a link to the reduction in high school drop out rates. The unexpected results suggest two-parent households may not always be best for children, say the researchers from the University of California, Irvine. They said policymakers should encourage parenting skills and help low income families, rather than attempting to bolster marriage.
