Growing Up Poor In America
Ohio serves as the backdrop of a new documentary from FRONTLINE that explores issues of child poverty and the new challenges they face from the pandemic.
Growing Up Poor in America premieres Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 9 p.m. on WOSU Television.
The film follows three Ohio children and their families, one mixed-race, one Black and one white, for six months as they struggle to stay afloat in uncertain times.
Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, we discuss COVID-19’s impact on Ohio’s poorest kids.
