The Scouting Report: Decrease Poverty and Increase Opportunity

Too many Americans leave school with inadequate skills, and too many working families struggle to make ends meet. Greater investments in economic opportunity are needed to reduce poverty and increase future economic mobility for today’s poor children. On Wednesday, November 26, Brookings Senior Fellow Rebecca Blank answered questions during a web chat with Politico about poverty in the United States and creating opportunities for American families.

Every Wednesday at 12:30 EST between the election and the inauguration, Brookings experts and editors and reporters from the Politico will host “The Scouting Report,” a live web chat discussing pressing issues facing our president-elect.
