Summary
Pulitzer prize winning journalist Julia Cass, went to the Delta in Mississippi, the ravaged cities of New Orleans and Baton Rouge in Louisiana, and to the birthplace of the suburban American dream, in Long Island, New York, and to find poor children and tell their stories. Julia Cass' report puts human faces on the statistics that tell the frightening and heartbreaking reality of how poverty is impacting America's children. She found that despite safety net protections put in place over the past generations, poor children are still adrift in a sea of poverty with their future in jeopardy. Years of research link childhood poverty to a multitude of poor outcomes: lower academic attainment, higher rates of teen pregnancy and incarceration, a greater chance of health and behavioral problems, and lifelong poverty
