    Well. we were always told to go for a very narrow topic and look at it in detail, rather than whitewash a very broad topic and ending up in the 'can't see the wood for the trees' situation. So I suggest you start by coming up with a more defining title maybe? Child poverty is huge. Are you looking at its' effect on educational attainment, attendance at school, access to resources (internet books at home etc), ill-health and subsequent effect on education, social implications?
    Once you have decided that, you can formulate your title, which will help hugely in planning out the rest of it. Eg 'Child Poverty and Social implications within school', 'Child Poverty and attainment in KS?'.
    Others will have other ideas I am sure, but for me, that's what I'd do first.
    Good luck
  5. Just a thought. As I drove in to work this morning there was an piece on the radio about the plans to offset unpaid truancy fines against child benefit payments to parents. One person was talking about the high correlation between truancy and poverty. Don't know if this anything you may be interested in but thought I'd mention it.
    Good luck
