Children, Poverty and the District of Columbia

Poverty holds fast in the District of Columbia, especially for children.

The economy roars forward and the District thrives, but not for everyone.  A new report just released about the status of children and poverty in DC says something we’ve heard before… many times before.  More than 25% of DC’s children live in poverty and that hasn’t changed in three decades.  We take a look at the report, the problems and possible solutions.
