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.

In his article “Come to Revolution”, Friedman argues that online education is potentially better than regular education. He uses many effective rhetorical strategies to make his point. Friedman does a good job of providing background and referring to reliable authorities to enhance his own credibility. In his argument he uses the people he interviews’ credentials.

The flexibility of online learning can benefit students who have particular challenges in their education, such as those who have fallen behind in their studies (Lips). Students have reported that online courses are easier to concentrate in because they are not distracted by other students and classroom activity.
