Curmudgeon's Corner: RI taxpayers pay the cost for single-parent families (OPINION)

July 31, 2012

Two weeks ago under the rubric “Reinvent Rhode Island” the lead story in the Sunday edition of the state’s largest daily newspaper dealt with the plight of single mothers. This piece, which featured 36-year-old, mother of two, Crystal M. Tetreault covered most of the front page and two full pages in the first section.
We learn that Miss Tetreault was herself the child of a 17-year old mother who never went to high school. She was raised in foster care, a group home and by an aunt. (Thank you, taxpayers.) Her father was absent until she was an adult.
