Examples of impoverished in a Sentence

  1. Veronica Hinton:

    Given that multiple factors seem to contribute to falling in the lower 5 percent on school readiness measures - including living in an impoverished household, primary language other than English, lower maternal education, and black maternal race, as well as late preterm (birth) - it is reasonable to believe that the reasons why some late preterm children are at risk are multi-factorial.

I thought that was kind of crazy, that they might need more television, they have television. [Laughter] It just felt very strange to me.
