"Rothstein, however, found little evidence to support that premise. Instead, he found that differences in local labor markets—for example, how similar industries can vary across different communities—and marriage patterns, such as higher concentrations of single-parent households, seemed to make much more of a difference than school quality. He concludes that factors like higher minimum wages, the presence and strength of labor unions, and clear career pathways within local industries are likely to play more important roles in facilitating a poor child’s ability to rise up the economic ladder when they reach adulthood."

The case for having just one kid | PBS NewsHour
I understand wanting to buck a trend, having grown up an only child, I would never want to subject children to that. From learning life lessons and group dynamics growing up to having support and "blood" friends when they're older, having more kids just makes sense to me. 3-4 is ideal.

Movin' On Up? That May Depend On Your Last Name : NPR
genetics, family = Not in the traditional sense that I've used these tags, but I know I'll think of these tags when I think of this story. ........ public-policy = "But it's clear he has growing doubts about whether public policy can really help people move up the social ladder." ........ family = ""And it really is conveying this message that families are where the action is at in terms of the outcomes and performance for people," Clark says." ........ habit = This article paints it like success/failure is a foregone conclusion. I see it as a function of habits. Successful ancestors had good habits, which they passed down through families. Those habits filter into decendants' lives and create those higher probabilities of success. ...............

Northwest Florida Daily News: Novel police tactic puts drug markets out of business
Novel police tactic puts drug markets out of business:

"Police made dozens of undercover buys and videotaped many other drug purchases. They also did something unusual: they determined the "influentials" in the dealers' lives -- mothers, grandmothers, mentors -- and cultivated relationships with them. When police felt they had amassed ironclad legal cases, they did something even more striking: they refrained from arresting most of the suspected dealers. "
