Stanford University recently conducted a study showing little difference in educational achievement between children raised by gay couples and those raised by married heterosexual couples.
The study, published in Demography magazine, utilized the U.S. Census for their findings. The results indicated that 7% of children raised by heterosexual married couples were held
back a year, while about 9.5% of children living with same-sex partners repeated a grade.
Children of gay and married couples had lower grade-repetition rates
than their peers raised by opposite-sex unmarried couples and single
parents, according to the story.
