Va. A high proportion of West Virginia children are living in stubbornly persistent poverty, according to a major new study. The Annie E. Casey Foundation's "Race for Results" report looked at a variety of health, education, family stability and income data by state.

Sam Hickman, executive director of the National Association of Social Workers, said research is finding that adverse childhood experiences - more common in poor homes - can limit a child for life. He said experts now can even predict some results of a hard childhood. "Whether or not you will be divorced, whether or not you'll be able to hold a job or become incarcerated," he said, "even to the point' of how many medications you might be taking in your elder years." Hickman noted that West Virginia does a good job of providing health coverage to children; 97 percent now can access medical care when they need it. However, that progress is threatened by Congress' failure to continue funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program. helping their families succeed.
