Two weeks ago under the rubric â€śReinvent Rhode Islandâ€ť the lead story in the Sunday edition of the stateâ€™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.
