In the past many educational plans for working moms have been developed. According to recent statistics, there are 35 million single moms living in U.S.A and about half of them are living at or below the poverty level. The reason for this is that most of the single moms have not even completed their high school education. Therefore it gets really difficult for them to get financially stable. Obama president of U.S.A has started “Mom Return to School Program” for working moms.
It is the established fact that education is the tool through which single moms can secure their financial future. Education specifically post-secondary education plays a significant role in widening horizon of job opportunities.

The other aspect of this educational program is that every applicant earning less than $45,000 per year can receive up to $10,000 as a financial aid to continue education. This financial aid does not have to be paid back too.
