Oppose and Reject Lawrence Summers
“In 2006, when [Summers] was still president of Harvard University, Summers gave a speech in which he suggested that women might be underrepresented in the sciences in part because of “variability of a male and female population” when it comes to “overall IQ, mathematical ability, [and] scientific ability.” After a month of denunciations, he resigned from the presidency.
“The president of Harvard University, Lawrence H. Summers, who offended some women at an academic conference last week by suggesting that innate differences in sex may explain why fewer women succeed in science and math careers, stood by his comments yesterday but said he regretted if they were misunderstood."I'm sorry for any misunderstanding but believe that raising questions, discussing multiple factors that may explain a difficult problem, and seeking to understand how they interrelate is vitally important," Dr. Summers said in an interview.Several women who participated in the conference said yesterday that they had been surprised or outraged by Dr. Summers's comments, and Denice D. Denton, the chancellor designate of the University of California, Santa Cruz, questioned Dr. Summers sharply during the conference, saying she needed to "speak truth to power."Nancy Hopkins, a professor of biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who once led an investigation of sex discrimination there that led to changes in hiring and promotion, walked out midway through Dr. Summers's remarks.

If your child only lives in your house at certain times (e.g., summers with you, school years with other parent) then you answer the question according to what your household size is on the day you file the bankruptcy petition.References : Former Legal Assistant with a bankruptcy law firm Was this answer helpful? http://qpfgnsluou.com uhuylxgvez vklmnt
