Parents are forced to send their children to the local schools because they cannot afford to send their children to better school districts. The education curriculum is totally different for these children for the reason that they do not have access to new/improved books, good computers/electronics, academic assistance, teachers who genuinely care, and they aren’t even following the same curriculum as students who attend schools in better districts. With the lack of resources these children are forced to fall below academic standard which makes it extremely difficult
In the United States today there is a significant number of kids who attend public schools, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but these schools are facing a number of problems that bring downfalls to the overall effectiveness of the system.

Within his writing, he explains in great detail how poverty is a deeply rooted problem that society faces in two ways, as well as the longtime affects of the troubles and hardships poor people experience every day. The first way poverty is categorized is when people consistently work long and hard hours for a job that is very low-waged with no benefits.
Poverty has been a consistent problem throughout history. No matter what the median income, unemployment or overall prosperity level is, there will always be people who are in a state of poverty. Despite being one of the most prosperous countries in the world, the United States is not immune to it either.
