The Promise Rich vs. The Promise Poor. Issue Brief
America's Promise Alliance (NJ1)
The second "Every Child, Every Promise" research brief examines the association between a family's income and the presence of the Five Promises in their child's life. The report documents the Promise gap that exists between children in low-income families and those in higher income families. Although parents in low-income families are typically providing a safe, nurturing, and caring home for their children, these families need supports outside their homes to ensure that their children have the stimulating and educational experiences that lead to better academic and social outcomes. (Contains 3 footnotes and 3 tables.) [For the first "Every Child, Every Promise" issue brief, see ED505398.]
