Risk and Reach

Mothers without high school degree

In 2012, nearly 8 percent of all Minnesota births were to mothers who have not completed high school. Mothers without a high school degree often experience financial strain, which can affect their mental health, level of stress, and parenting quality. These factors are linked to child behavior problems and lower performance on standardized tests related to school readiness.
