Description

Write a research-based, argumentative essay in which you argue the idea that the organization and function, and ultimately success of families, is primarily dependent on socioeconomic status rather than race, ethnicity, or culture (consider the arguments Gerstel and Sarkisian make). In your argument explain how social policy aimed directly at rectifying economic disadvantages in order to support family success is a possible solution for struggling American families. Use Naomi Gerstel and Natalia Sarkisian’s essay, “The Color of Family Ties: Race, Class, Gender, and Extended Family Involvement,” as one of your sources.
