On 20 July 2015 Reuters reported:
The effect of poverty on children's brains may explain why poor youngsters tend to score lower on standardized tests compared to wealthier students, a new US study suggests. 'What was already discovered is there is an achievement gap between poor children and middle-class children,' the study's senior author Seth Pollak told Reuters Health. 'Even when they move to better neighborhoods, children growing up in poor families tend to do less well in school than their less poor counterparts.' What's more, researchers have found in recent years that poverty is linked to worse brain development, said Pollak.
