Education in poverty-stricken areas is a luxury that many people do not receive and has always been a fight from the beginning of Mississippi’s historical roots. The battle for adequate education began over the issue of segregation and continues to hinder teens’ ability to learn. One of the reasons that education is unsatisfactory in many parts of Mississippi is because education and poverty are interrelated. Poverty has a negative impact on the student’s achievements and academic success and puts them at disadvantages for their futures. Although Mississippi is notorious for its major issues, the correlation of poverty and education have persisted as some of the most pressing issues that require immediate attention.

However, in cases where they are categorized as being in "the dumb class" so to speak, this can severely impact their mental health to the extent that it makes them more prone to depression, social isolation and introversion. Gándara (2010) also presents the notion that class diversity (i.e. different ethnicities and social classes in a classroom) plays a crucial role in enabling students to be more well adjusted when it comes to encountering people from different races and economic classes. In the case of the tier system, since minorities are at times from low income families, this creates a situation where most of the children in the lower level of the tier system are minorities.

In the society that we live in today some students will never know what it is like to attend a segregated school in the south. It is one thing to attend a segregated school, but it is another to be considered as a minority. African Americans are sometimes belittled and treated differently from other races. Being singled out in a massive group of people because of your race while trying to learn in school can be very overwhelming. According to Joel Spring, “Schools segregation for blacks and Latinos increased in the recent years…” (114 Spring).
