Colleen Heflin, professor of public administration and international affairs, was interviewed for the Ithaca Journal article "Upstate metro areas have some of the highest childhood poverty rates in the nation." "The workforce is not going to be as dynamic as other parts of the country," says Heflin. "It's going to be a pull on our economy going forward," she says, because children growing up in poverty traditionally have lower educational attainment and wages. 09/14/18
