The homelife of an adolescent has a profound impact on their ability to find success in school. Students who come from a family that is made up of a single parent, divorced parents, homelessness, and some other non-traditional family configurations are more likely to be unsuccessful in school and develop unwanted psychological adjustments. This research explores how a student’s homelife affects their success in school from the views of both a traditional and non-traditional family type. It also focuses on the impact that teachers and school communities can have on a student’s success, regardless of their upbringing. Through this research, it is hoped that teachers will be able to provide a more equitable education for students from a non-traditional homelife who may not be given the same head start that many of their peers from traditional family experience.
