Poverty hits educational development, and hard. Take a look at this graph about WI test scores for 4th graders. The poorer the students were (i.e. how much of their lunch is subsidized), the worse they performed in math and reading tests. This heartbreaking gap in learning should be fixed at the the federal level. Less poverty = higher-achieving kids.

The Education gap. Our economy is already suffering a shortage of skilled workers, and it is getting worse. Closing the gap will require new priorities and the resources to develop an additional 1 million skilled workers annually.
