This is a brilliant, must-read article from Professor Nancy Folbre, writing in the Economix blog of the NYT. Check it out!

Nancy Folbre: Writing Off Poor Children – NYTimes.com.

This is a timely article given the polarization of politics in the US but there are important lessons for other struggling economies in Europe, like the UK, Greece and Spain.

Personally, I agree that there is a case to address the challenges of poor children with tax-payers’ money but it must be done efficiently & effectively.

What do you think?
