Opportunity and Family Values - Rebroadcast

      A recent study shows that there is a widening gap in this country between children from upper class homes and children from lower class homes when it comes to 4 main factors that are strong predictors of life success.  And it’s shown that the gap in these 4 factors is more significant than factors such as race, age or gender.

In this rebroadcast episode we discuss the study and the factors and how they relate to family structure and by extension family values.
