Reducing Intergenerational Poverty Report

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) has recently released the “Reducing Intergenerational Poverty” report. Here is a short description of the report from their website:

“Experiencing poverty during childhood can lead to lasting harmful effects that compromise not only children’s health and welfare but can also hinder future opportunities for economic mobility, which may be passed on to future generations. This cycle of economic disadvantage weighs heavily not only on children and families experiencing poverty but also the nation, reducing overall economic output and placing increased burden on the educational, criminal justice, and health care systems.”
