General interest: Social class issues in family life education

Robert Hughes, Maureen Perry-Jenkins

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Beginning with an examination of cultural and structural frameworks for considering social class, we examine the research evidence regarding social class differences in parenting and marriage. Additionally, family life education literature is reviewed regarding how families in different social classes respond to various forms of intervention. Finally, we offer recommendations about how to include social class issues in the content and delivery of family life education.
