    When childhood poverty ends, a multitude of other problems—burdened single parent families, lower IQ levels in children not ready for schooling, childhood healthcare needs, violence within the family, lack of professional support systems, social inequities, etc—will be addressed. We need a systems approach to childhood poverty.

    In order to learn a child must have basic needs met. Trauma impacts a child’s ability to learn and develop. Homelessness can create stress and trauma. All children have the right to learn and feel secure that their basic needs will be met.

    Given the riches we possess, it’s unforgivable that Wisconsin has such racial disparity in child poverty.
