SPAIN has the third highest rate of child poverty in the EU.
The United Nations Children’s Fund has released a report which places the country behind only Romania and Greece.
The percentage of children living below the poverty line in Spain is estimated to be 0%, the result of the economic crisis in 2008 and years of austerity which followed.
The government cut child spending in 2010 by 15% which had a negative impact on education quality.
It’s said that the elderly in Spain were much better cared for than children during the crisis.
