Impact University: Cycle of Poverty

Cycle of Poverty

A Different Approach to Breaking the Cycle of Poverty >

Semuels, A. (2014-12-24, The Atlantic): For decades the American poverty cycle has yoked together the fates of low-income parents and their children; a parent cannot keep a job if they cannot find childcare, a parent cannot afford childcare if they cannot keep a job, and a child cannot access a high-quality education in this unstable environment. The new two-generation approach utilizes these family ties to simultaneously provide free, quality preschool education to children and career and lifestyle classes to their parents.
