Ironically, he seems to have it all backwards really, saying in America the, “poor are not oppressed, the rich are not privileged.” Now contrary to Paine’s unbelievably closed-minded interpretation, the poor are indeed oppressed and the rich are quite privileged. In 2016, a record high of close to 40% of all wealth earned was controlled by the 1%. Although, the poor population is not directly being oppressed by the American government itself, they are being oppressed due to the situation the government refuses to address. For example, America can be seen as a very literate society, though when making this assumption we can not forget that there is a minority that is illiterate, the impoverished. Poverty and illiteracy go hand in hand in a lot of cases.
Children don't deserve to suffer because of their parents income levels. They should instead be able to get an equal education that can help them in their futures. If nothing changes this will continue to be a cycle that the disadvantaged children go through. If the children don't get the same education they may not pursue a higher education, therefore their children will be forced to go to the underfunded public schools and it will continue on. However, if the government steps in and offers a solution where everyone can be treated equally, regardless of income, everyone will benefit.
What causes poverty? A question such as this is important to consider when trying to determine why the income gap in America has increased so greatly. Based from Maya Wesby’s article Why the Rich Stay Rich and the Poor Stay Poor, the key determinate to someone’s financial success is related to the environment in which they are raised. It is essentially the privileges of being born or brought into a wealthy family that gives them the advantage over the majority of the population. The most interesting part of this to me is that those who are privileged enough to have these advantages in life often do not see themselves as so.
There is no excuse for any child in America to go hungry and malnourished in one of the richest nations’ on Earth. Be that as it may, childhood hunger is a widespread, urgent and shameful problem that cannot wait. In the same study done by CCHIP, an additional 10 million children are at risk for hunger (Alaimo, Olson, Frongillo and Briefel, 2001, May). Across the United States 14 million children are or are at risk of being hungry or malnourished, 4.3% of all of America, not even including adults,
These underprivileged kids, who do not have the choice as to what kind of school they attend, have the lowest test scores across the world. This can be related to the disadvantage they have due to attending unsuccessful public schools.
To solve the world's problems everyone needs to help each other, stop being selfish, children to not be disturb, and adults to have same job opportunities, however others oppose saying the best way to solve world poverty problems would be to feed the wealthy with the poor. Being selfish is only part of who we are and what we need to flourish according to virtue ethicists; Aristotle,
Some underprivileged schools use have facilities for sports and have functional computer rooms with library’s with a wide selection of books to choose from . The good thing about having various facilities is not how spotless it is but how well its being used .It is good that privileged schools have so many facilities because those schools understand the importance of equalising physical activities with academics because most children would excel at academics n some with physical skill , no two children are exactly the same, Whereas underprivileged schools prefer to be more academic based .Being in a school with clean facilities conducts with an hygienic school . Privileged schools offer a lot of sporting activities , they offer it so that they keep children active and busy so that they understand the importance of being fit and staying healthy moreover the unfortunate underprivileged schools which are more academic based schools can lead to the children being more exposed to drugs and alcohol at a young age provide due to stress .It would be nice to incorporate sport in every school instead of just being academic based because sport is also a way to relive stress and to keep children off the streets away from drugs and alcohol
Children who grow up facing poverty have an abundance more of difficulties and problems verses kids whom are more well off. It is a proven fact that children in poverty have a harder time receiving proper help for some issues that most already get the help for. For example, kids in poverty have a harder time receiving health care, students receive worse education when they are in poverty, they do not have the proper mental health, and sometimes they can not even have a proper food source so that they can consistently eat. Since the children are in poverty, everything plays an effect on the children in poverty, and the children are affected the most. It is harder for every child to receive medicare for their medical bills or even just medical attention.
The school I choose to teach at would be a privileged school .I would choose a privalged school because ive been thought in a “middle class” school .My school was mostly an achademic based school without much interclass competition .The school ive been thought at has similar qualities of a privlaged and underprivlaged school .My school in particular didn’t have a lot of technological equiptment to teach lessons , but what ever they had they made full use of .My schools surroundings was not as good as a privlaged school and was simmiliar but not as bad as an underprivileged school. People should be against underprivileged schools because those schools do not have much resources ,the schools lack discipline and they have a bad infustructure In order for any child to learn they need to feel that they are in a safe and secure learning environment and with the right recuouces at your disposal and good educators in the school who can teach lessons adecuatly then youre heading for a good educational year/years. Privelaged schools have a lot of recources at their disposal
