How much is a child in South Carolina worth?
And, it’s likely you’re not going to like the answer – LESS THAN CONNECTICUT. A LOT LESS.
In Connecticut, each child in poverty is allocated $1,052 a year via TANF, whereas in South Carolina that same program allocates only $179 a year per child.
And in his Op-Ed, Mr. Keith is urging Congress to do the right thing, fund each child living in poverty according to poverty level, not according to “state” advantages.
Good job Commissioner Keith!
