Poverty is a serious social problem

Poverty is a serious social problem | Equality & Difference in Australia | Scoop.it

Poor Kids, the much-lauded, late-night BBC documentary in which the children of struggling adults speak directly to camera about their lives, sums up everything that is wrong with today’s salacious and Dickensian focus on so-called “child poverty”. In circumventing the adult world, elbowing aside problematic parents and guardians in favour of letting the kids “have a voice”, the documentary exposes the extent to which the problem of poverty has been infantilised.
