Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to determine the academic, monetary and familial, values of single African American mothers in poverty. Four focus groups explored the values and attitudes of low-income single mothers. The key findings from this research indicated that these low-income, African American, single mothers' value systems were similar to that of mainstream America, however, there were very specific obstacles to overcome in order to accurately implement those values. A discussion of the findings are presented including important implications for what are revealed about low-income, African American, single, mothers' values and attitudes. Limitations of the study are discussed, and implications for additional research are addressed.
