Teen fatherhood limits education

Teen fatherhood lowers the odds a young man will graduate from high school but increases his odds of employment or joining the military, a new study co-authored by La Follette School economist Barbara Wolfe finds.
Professor Karen Holden is pleased to find that she will be working during her retirement — and that her efforts will help more Americans secure their own retirements. Holden will serve as co-principal investigator for a financial literacy research grant the campus Center for Financial Security received. The U.S. Social Security Administration has awarded the Center for Financial Security first-year funding of $1.48 million as one member of the administration's new Financial Literacy Research Consortium. Boston College and the RAND Corporation also will house research centers under this consortium.
