This week, WOSU and NPR stations across the country are participating in a national week of conversations called A Nation Engaged. We’re asking this question:  “What can we do to create economic opportunity for more Americans?”

Recent U.S Census Bureau data shows that median incomes are up and poverty is down, but here in Ohio 1 in 5 children live in poverty. Central Ohio is often cited as region of economic resilience, but research shows that Columbus ranks among the worst cities in upward mobility. This hour, a conversation about creating economic opportunity for children born into poverty.
