With rising divorce rates, single-parent families make up an increasing portion of all families in Canada. Despite the struggles and commitment of the women who are the sole provides of these families, most single parents are raising children in poverty. This book focuses on the lack of post-secondary education as the major factor in this persistent social reality and provides strong evidence that young women at high school today (and their parents) will find compelling. Choices made at high school graduation are key to a woman's life-time economic independence--as divorce and poverty figures show, the most risky choice is marriage before higher education. Looking to their own futures, today's female high school students need to prepare for self-sufficiency whatever surprises life may hold
