For two decades, Dr. Miguel Sanchez has been writing about child poverty and each year he’s profoundly disturbed by what he finds. “Year after year we have been reporting the very same number of children living below the poverty line,” says Sanchez. “It is unacceptable that in a society that claims to cherish children, we have close to 25 per cent of this province’s children living in abject poverty.” Sanchez, Associate Dean in the Faculty of Social Work, has co-authored a report on child and family poverty in Saskatchewan, with Dr. Garson Hunter, Associate Professor in the Social Work Faculty.
