This study explores whether dual biological parent families are more efficient at producing children educational outcomes than are families with other parental structures in Britain. In the process we provide new results on the interrelationships between education and family structure via a stochastic production process perspective. We find that dual parent biological families are on average more efficient at producing childhood educational outcomes (math and english test results) than are families with other parental types. However, this educational outcome advantage is found to be decreasing over time.
