There are plenty of reasons Texas has such a low voter turnout rate. One reason is because of the demographic Texas has. Another reason is that people really believe that their vote doesn’t matter. Finally a third reason is due to the fact that people are simply not educated. Voting will change our lives, if we just speak up everything will be just the way we want it.
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 only thing that is foolish is the fact that the state did not opt in. The states which have participated in the Medicaid expansion have reported seeing a drastic declined in uninsured rates and the uncompensated cost that hospitals incur do to treating patients that are uninsured. As Texas Medicaid stands now, no person without a child qualifies, college students are disqualified, and a person with a child who earns over 19 percent of the poverty level are not qualified for assistance. This is a disgrace. The blame lies on the former Governor and Texas Legislature for this awful decision.
Subsequently, they would not sell the crops that they produced, which was not a lot because along with the Great Depression the Dust Bowl was also taking place. The Dust Bowl was a massive drought in the middle portion of the country, while it did not affect Alabama where the story took place, it was a detriment to many families. As a consequence of the Dust Bowl many farms produced a small amount of crop, and it contributed to the money deflation of Great
The sugar act, which was passed a little under a year ago, already made things very hard on the family and this would just make matters worse. The sugar act put taxes on sugar and molasses. The Cranes ' were not very happy about this second act that Britain was enacting. Everything was extremely hard on Bruce Crane because he did not earn a lot with his job at the local iron factory.
The Dust Bowl There’s a huge cloud coming only it 's not a cloud made of water, it 's a cloud of dust. When the Great Depression started in the 1930s there was a lot of economic problems, but during this time of crisis the Dust Bowl started. The dust bowl was a huge cloud of dust that destroyed parts of America. When the Dust Bowl hit it destroyed the agriculture and the dust storm affected the farmers living were the Dust Bowl hit and wherever the Dust Bowl hit, the farmer’s health was affected as well.
The residences usually have poor health status due to inaccessibility to health care, lack of insurance and no access to preventative care. Many parents cannot afford to buy clothing and pay for school fees as well as provide adequate transportation to school. This sets the students up for potential failure and many
Last but not the least, law and order in Nogales, Sonora is also in a bad condition. The crime rate is high, and residents there always worry about theft, or expropriation (Acemoglu & Robinson, 2012). Under the same geography and climate conditions, why two halves of the one city has such huge differences becomes a considerable question.
Today in the United States 14% of adults are illiterate which is a better result than in the South before the Civil War. The Southerners’ wretched attitude towards education during the 1800s contributed to the lagging literacy rate. They also believed that schooling was a private issue and not for public funds to be spent on it, so you would have to go to private school if you wanted schooling. Then for the educational system did not have much public schools because the southern people were not willing to pay taxes for it. Secondly most of the public schools that were managed were in poor condition, these were called “charity houses” and too far away for some children that wanted to attend for an

The government wouldn 't support a movement if they didn 't agree with. People didn 't had freedom, freedom of expressing themselves, freedom to adorn a god, freedom to have what they have worked for, and freedom to be themselves. The situation got worse for years when America started to enter to the great depression. Great Depression was the longest and deepest economic downturn in the Western Industrialized world. During this period lots of people had lost their jobs, poor families had nothing to eat and to live off, country 's banks had failed.
During the period of great depression business trade that went on between countries became stifled. Many farm produced was reduced and industry jobs were slowed down, especially the farm produced. Many farmers could not produce because of falling farm prices, less consumption and the continuous laying off of workers all affected the farmers so much that there was decrease in exports. Coupled with the effect of the post-world war 1, much of the thriving of 1920s was a recurrent sequence of debt for the American farmer, reducing from farm prices and the necessity to purchase expensive machinery. Thus, the rest of the nation’s felt and saw it as a severe drop and the United States loss much of his external
I believe that Brooks ' argument about the importance of work is manifested in these low test scores, where students examples are often parents and family members who are not working yet receive checks in the mail for unemployment benefits. Children in these poor districts may simple not have a healthy work ethic demonstrated to them because of the distaste for work, creating
Being free, though, did not ensure their freedom. While freed, they remained four million of the most despised people in the United States. Further complicating the issue was the fact that very few freedmen had any education and even fewer possessed life skills. They had always been told what to do and when to do it.
The Texas Executive The Texas executive branch is where the power to execute the law resides, and where the Governor holds power. Due to Texas’ difficult past with corrupt Governors like E.J. Davis that have gained too much power, our government as a whole decided to put in place a plural executive. A plural executive is when power of the Governor is broken between multiple heads in the government, rather than having that power all rest with one person. Having a plural executive helps to keep the amount of corruption in the Texas executive branch down, by ensuring that one person is not able to gain too much power and thus corrupt the rest of the government by appointing based on friendship.
