U.S. Department of Education to Eliminate ‘Mother,’ ‘Father’ from forms

first_imgChristian Post 11 May 2013The U.S. Department of Education recently announced that it will no longer use the terms “mother”  and “father” when collecting information about a student’s legal parents when  those parents apply for federal student aid. Instead of using the words “mother”  and “father,” the new Free Application for Federal Student Aid form (FAFSA) will  use “Parent 1” and “Parent 2.” The announcement states that the changes to the 2014-2015 federal student aid  form “more accurately and fairly assess students’ need for aid” and that  “Gender-specific terms fail to capture income and other information from one  parent when a student’s parents are in a same-sex marriage under state law but  not federally recognized under the Defense of Marriage Act.”http://www.christianpost.com/news/department-of-education-to-eliminate-mother-father-from-federal-student-aid-forms-95679/last_img read more
