No Child Left Behind in London: The challenge for the next MayorDate Posted: 07 March 2016
Under the current Mayor, London has been a hugely successful city with strong economic growth and a booming population. Yet, despite London’s economy performing better than any other region, children are still more likely to live in poverty in the capital than anywhere else nationally and children are also more likely to live in poverty than adult Londoners. With 37% of children in London living in poverty, it seems that children have been left behind from London’s success.
A new research report from 4in10, No Child Left Behind in London: The Challenge for the Next Mayor, explores child poverty in London, looking at housing, childcare, transport, working families, health and schools. The report makes recommendations for a new Mayor, drawn from extensive discussion with the sector.
