In this analysis of national and state-by-state data on population, poverty, family structure, family income, health, nutrition, early childhood development, education, child welfare, juvenile justice, and gun violence the Children’s Defense Fund reports that the recession and slow recovery has taken its toll on children. The downward spiral shows alarming numbers of children in poverty and more than 60 percent of fourth, eighth and 12th grade public school students are reading or doing math below grade level.  Find the interactive online report below.

Thanks for the article from Childrens Defense. I am astounded to see the amount of children in poverty. I'm appreciative to see the state-by-state data on health and nutrition. I was surprised to see California's numbers be so low. I live in San Fransisco and wonder if San Francisco doctors ever give their time to these children in poverty for free. I think it would be great for doctors to help out any way that they could.
