More than 730,000 children in Australia are living below the poverty line.
These disadvantaged children are at risk of having their learning compromised.
The Poverty in Australia 2016 Report, released last week, found the number of children living in poverty is increasing.
The report was written by the Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) in collaboration with the Social Policy Research Centre at the University of New South Wales.
