A single parent is one either a man or woman who is living independently with his children without the other partner they have had children or a child with. Single—parent—families were now very common to many societies today particularly Bukwo and this may be caused by separation of the parents, divorce and death. This study seeks to investigate the influence of single-parent-families on academic performance of secondary school students in Bukwo district. In this study, the comparative research design will be used coupled with qualitative and quantitative research approaches. The design is good in dealing with cause and effect relationships of variables involved in such studies. This study will therefore gather qualitative and quantitative data for students’ academic performance scores, and attitudes towards schooling using questionnaires, interview schedules and documentary review
