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.
The reason why it must get to the point where individuals intervene is that of the lack of knowledge. It is notorious for the ignorance established by a group of oppressors. Inequality and oppression stem from poor education, and the oppressed sometimes stay oppressed because of poor education as well. It is well known that “knowledge is power”, but not everyone knows everything. So, that makes bystanders as guilty as the oppressors due to their inability to act and only
In many countries living in extremely poor conditions, not only is basic health an issue but also the lack of education. Although it is a necessity, “more than 72 million children of primary education age are not in school and 759 million adults are illiterate” (Rights to Education 1). The deprivation of education should be taken serious if a change is wanted. People need to become aware of how important education is and the benefit that it has. Douglas and Malala struggled to gain an education in order to resist control by others, which affected their lives in multiple ways; however, they were able to reveal the value of education to all.
Income inequality leads to unequal access to opportunity and resources like education. This has left children born to poor families with little hope of achieving their American dream. The gap between wealthy and poor is increasing and slowly middle class is diminishing. With so much ridicule and judgment it is becoming difficult to send their children to school, or even receive high school education. Because, our society believes that people who are not born here are not entitled to
She doesn 't want us to bring this trait to our children and make them have that bad habit. This is really going to put the future of humanity in trouble.

Poverty is universal but does vary within countries, even neighborhoods. According to society poverty is hunger, lack of shelter, not having the ability to see a doctor when necessary and limited education.

Not only do these kids frequently receive slight or no education, but large families in these countries are the main contributor to global overpopulation. These children are not privileged with the same basic opportunities given to an American child.
I find it very hard to believe that, when even in the schools, children of different sex, race and age are not even treated equal, so how can the outside world be equal? In the second paragraph of the article Why education inequality persist—and how to fix it, “In contrast, the best-funded schools with the highest percentage of experienced teachers are most often located in the most economically advantaged neighborhoods”. How can we even be close to equality? The declaration does not live up to what it says, or at least the important thins. They invest no time in our children,they treat them unfair, and that is why we don 't have equality now, they make sure that everyone else and themselves are taken care of.
In addition to that, girls that are orphans, have only one parent, or are refugees, are more likely to not attend school because they are limited in having the opportunity to do so (Sperling 213). In the article titled “International Efforts and Judicial Activism towards Empowerment of Women-A Study” Singh informs the readers about women being denied empowerment based on stereotypes of women being weaker, slower, and less intelligent than men (Singh 3). Singh writes about women having no
The schools in Balochistan are not that much developed as that of Punjab. In Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa, the literacy rate is terribly the lowest among all provinces. Sindh is also facing a great many problems regarding the teachers’ trainings, their lowest salaries as compared to other provinces, school furniture and fixtures. 3. Gender Discrimination as a major
Inequality in Education: A Global Issue According to the World Bank Group, out of the 7.442 billion people in the world in 2016, 49.558 were female (“Population”, 2016). Although women make up roughly half of the world’s population, they experience discrimination and inequality in nearly every culture. One of the biggest injustices against women and girls is their lack of education in certain areas around the world. A global issue that resonates across cultures is the inequality of education for girls. An unequal education for girls creates limited opportunities for them in the future.
