Eliminate poverty, raise achievement

The Children’s Commissioner says he was “shaken” to learn about the extent and the impact of poverty in New Zealand. His latest report is depressing, but familiar. One of the things it shows, again, is the impact that poverty has on underachievement. Till we address family income, and properly fund public schools, educational targets alone, will never work.
