New research shows children raised by same-sex couples do better in school than children raised by opposite-sex couples.
The Washington Post reports:
Children of same-sex couples perform better in school than kids raised by a mom and a dad, according to new research from several European economists.
The researchers found that children raised by same-sex couples had higher test scores in elementary and secondary school and were about 7 percent more likely to graduate from high school than children raised by different-sex couples.
Bottom line: Contradicting years of anti-gay Christian propaganda, new research shows children raised by same-sex couples do better in school than children raised by more traditional opposite-sex couples.
- Do you think that it is more important for couples who adopt to be able to provide advantages, or to be male/female?
- Do you think these finding have more to do with the parents being same-sex, or the fact that same sex couples plan for their children instead of hetero couples becoming parents through unexpected “accidents”?
