After the longest peace-time expansion in American history, one in five American children is growing up poor. There's mounting evidence that poverty is not just a condition; it's often a trap. Children who grow up poor are more likely to get sick, more likely to die, and far more likely to fail in school - especially if they've suffered extreme poverty before the age of six.

The Forgotten 14 Million explores why both government and the free market are failing the most vulnerable young Americans.

This is a very informative and comprehensive article about poverty in the state of Kentucky. I would love to get a transcript in order to post an audio of this to my blog. I think everyone should listen to this audio file!
