Some colleges are charging the tuition price of a big name college when they are not as well known and the degree may not go very far. Recently students are (taking on more debt) than they can pay and end up not being able to pay them off (Hacker and Schlesinger). When students graduate college most of them will have debt that they have to pay and many of them can’t pay it off. In highschool people and teachers stress that students need to go to college and it can (cause a sense of panic) in the highschool students (crawford). By putting pressure on high school students they often don 't think about the tuition they have to pay to get in, so they take what they can get to get into college.
This really hinders any chance of them getting any kind of a decent paying job because they will not be hired because of their low education level. The Cunningham’s are an example of this in the book. They are all considered the “poor people” and are essentially stuck in this class because they will be trapped in the endless cycle of not having money. This is unfair to those people because they are basically born without a chance of progression and will be view and categorized for their entire
If you were to look at a community with high dropout rates you’d see lower socioeconomics and high crime rates. Except in Africa the problem is magnified, one of every three children never attend school; therefore, there is widespread illiteracy, poverty and crime. Because of it’s the terrible education system it creates a population of unskilled and unqualified workers. Simple jobs like nurses or electricians can’t be filled because no one has knowledge of those subject, which causes poor health care and infrastructure in the country.
Black schools in Sunflower County were known to be severely underfunded, going without busses and necessary school supplies. Majority of the poor African American children did not attend school due to the need to cultivate crops and pick cotton for their family. Furthermore, these less advantaged African citizens made approximately seventy percent of the population, however the poor African American percentage maintained absent of a middle class. Sunflower County was divided between desired citizenship and constant denial for civil rights. J. Todd Moye captures radical racism through the circumstances of political powers such as U.S. senator James O. Eastland, a multimillionaire Citizen Council member, who desired to maintain racial
The financial burdens that college leaves with the families and students needs to be addressed as student loans keep racking up over time. The cost of tuition for colleges has risen drastically over the years and has bounded students to only one or two college choices to choose from and at some points tearing away the opportunity to go to their dream college. However, one reason college has driven up in price is because the value it brings with it’s degrees, but it should not limit those who can not afford the worthy degree. College should be cheaper as it will ease financial burdens and broaden the choices of those wanting to attend
Forgiveness of Student Loan Debt On a global scale, there is a large amount of people who are unfortunate in the sense that they are all regrettably faced with the issue of the struggle to pay for a proper education. Seeing as those who struggle are unable to pay on the spot, whether it be because they are financially independent adolescents or their families have low financial income, a majority of said strugglers resort to applying for student loans. This allows them to receive an education for the time being, but it still must be paid for eventually. As a result, every student who takes a loan for schooling will be in debt until everything that has been borrowed is paid off.
Children cost money to take care of, but so does their education. College graduates with children who are planning to attend college have to not only pay back their debts but their children’s schooling too. Once those children graduate then it starts the cycle over again. Moral of the story is that college is a ripple affect when it comes to money all because of the timing of debts being
Throughout America, there has been many inequities issues with education, such as racial discrimination and poverty. Racial discrimination has been an issue throughout America, it has caused an impact upon Blacks, in the south, with less knowledge.

North Carolina began the twentieth century in similar circumstances to the last century: economically, educationally and socially behind much of the rest of the country. Economically, the old bastions of textiles, light manufacturing and farming were still providing low wages for much of the workforce, precluding the state from making expensive ventures to innovate. Educationally, many children worked, making education difficult particularly in rural areas. Thanks to a heavily partisan political situation, there were a lot of restrictive rules affecting African American people in the early years of the twentieth century. To see how these factors change, a random selection of three decades was chosen.
This idea was also seen by Eric Rahimian and Fesseha Gebremikael in their article “Poverty Amid Affluence in Alabama” from Journal of the Alabama Academy of Science. “High poverty rates persist in many inner cities, counties and rural areas, and particularly in areas inhabited by minorities…. In our view, the main causes of poverty are poor education, low income and lack of opportunity.” This idea may have been true during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, but the higher rates of poverty now are seen between different age groups rather than the demographic groups. According to the United States Census Bureau, the poverty rate for children under the age of 18 is currently at 19.7%, where the rate for those aged 18 to 64 is 12.4% and those aged 65 and older is only at 8.8%.
Psychology today can tell us that the environment in which we grow up in can have an important impact on a youth’s identity and future. Growing up in not only a state of poverty, but with additional social and economic disadvantages can have an overwhelming negative influence on student’s performance. In major cities across the United States schools that poverty stricken African American students attend are segregated, not in a legal sense, but because of location. Neighborhoods with soaring levels of poverty are limited to the oftentimes overpopulated, underfunded, and understaffed local schools. Creating a culture of multigenerational families isolated in their own poverty.
