The report,  to be published in full this week (w/c 10th June) ,  also finds that at least one million children  are growing up without a father and that some of the poorest parts  of  the  country  have  become  “men  deserts”  because  so  few  primary  schools have male teachers.
Across  England and Wales, one in four primary schools has no male teacher and 80 per cent have fewer than three.
Father  absence  is  linked  to  higher  rates  of  teenage  crime,  pregnancy  and disadvantage, the report warns.
In a foreword to the report, titled:  ‘Fractured Families: why stability matters’,  from the Centre for Social Justice (CSJ), Director  Christian Guy warns of the “tsunami” of family breakdown battering the country.
