Poor housing, disruptive working hours chip away at children’s ability to achieve

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

As nation takes a hard look at fixing its criminal justice system, who is redressing systemic racism that's taking a toll on our children? Since George Floyd’s death, renewed and vigorous attention has been placed on police violence and discrimination against African Americans. These depredations are often referred to as “structural racism.” But structural racism is not restricted to criminal justice, and not restricted to adults.
In fact, structural racism has damaging effects on familial life, significantly impacting children.
