SUMMARY OF THE SHOW
On today's show, Adrian and Ethan discuss the link between poverty and education. Later we bring you Part 2 of an interview with Dr. Dwight "Ike" Reighard, President & CEO of MUST Ministries, a nonprofit in the Atlanta area serving those in need.
Last week we talked about the rise in poverty since the pandemic. Complete data on COVID-19’s impact on poverty levels is not yet available but we do know that before the coronavirus hit, 11.9 million children under the age of 18 were living in poverty in 2018, according to the Census Bureau’s official poverty measure. Children made up one third — 31.1 percent — of those living in poverty.
