Why is there so much poverty in California?

The poverty rate in California is the highest in the country and even higher among youth. This research looked at the Equal Opportunity Plan (EOP) for the long-term solution against poverty. Poor children should receive similar schooling and have the same access to high-quality training. In order to achieve this we must look at:

  • Step 1: Equal opportunity for health and development
  • Step 2: Early Childhood Education
  • Step 3: School and After School
  • Step 4: Workforce Development
  • Step 5: Making Work Pay
