A child's zip code should not determine their potential. Yet this is the sad reality for many American children. The great injustice oppressing thousands of families in our urban neighborhoods is the phenomenon of economic segregation. The legacy of our segregated communities has left generations of families disconnected from better educational choices, nutritional and healthcare options as well as relationships with those who have access to opportunities. Children who grow up in these neighborhoods of concentrated poverty are three times more likely to drop out of High School and seven times more likely to be in worse health than higher income peers. This need not be so.
