Children Achieving Potential to Escape Poverty

In this video, economist Marianne Page talks about how increasing academic achievement among children in poverty can help them to achieve their potential. Policies that can help improve children’s test scores help to build skills that have important impacts on the ability to escape poverty in the future.

Page is a Professor of Economics at UC Davis and Deputy Director of the UC Davis Center for Poverty Research. She is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and has served as Principal Investigator on grants funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
