Greg Duncan - The Long Reach of Child Poverty

From Sunday Morning, 8:40 am on 18 November 2012

Distinguished Professor Greg Duncan, from the University of California, has spent three decades researching childhood poverty. He studies the long-term impact of childhood poverty, investing in preschool programmes, the relationship between early experiences and success at school, and how rising inequality affects children's life chances. Professor Duncan is the first recipient of the newly established Sir Frank Holmes Visiting Fellowship in Policy Studies at Victoria University.
