Before examining the court case Mount Laurel Township vs. MiPro Homes L.L.C., it is important to understand the past legislation of the municipality and the state. Between the years 1960 and 1999, Mount Laurel’s population grew approximately 762%, at a rate of nearly 1,000 people per year. Such rapid growth began to negatively affect schools, roads, and municipal services. Fast forward to 1999, the town of Mount Laurel adopts an “Open Space Recreation
Malcolm Gladwell states in Outliers that 10,000 hours of practice in a sport or hobby or career, will propel one person over another. He tries to convince us with his argument by bringing up people like Bill Gates and the Beatles, stating that they spent more than 10,000 hours perfecting their craft. At first his argument seems pretty legit and holds merit, but then you begin to question. What if someone practices for 10,000 hours, but doesn 't put in much work? What if someone, who has spent few hours than 10,000 is excelling?
Similarly, Clinton passed a number of pieces of legislation intended to improve education ime. His increased education standards, school choice, and education and training investment significantly increased the number of charter schools in America, raised SAT and ACT scores, and doubled federal investments in education and training.

Bill, Clinton expanded federal financial-aid programs and work-study programs, giving millions more students the ability to receive higher education. These actions are highly reminiscent of Roosevelt 's, as each speaks to a man prepared he believed the best way to improve America was through the educational
“ We have fought war on poverty and poverty won”, is one of the most famously quotes of Ronald Regan. The meaning behind this quote is that America has been struggling to overcome poverty over years, but as years keeps increasing so do the number of people living poor. The percentage in poverty did decrease in 2000 but today it still affects 15 million people. According to Peter Edelman’s article “ Poverty In America: Why Cant We End It”, there are four reasons why America has not achieved to decrease the number of poverty: Low- wage jobs, households headed by single parent, welfare, and gender/ race. The plan that America has to improve this number of 15 million is by providing food stamps, enacting programs, and social security.
Over the years we have seen a rise in the Medicare, Medicaid and the Children 's Health Insurances programs, all government programs that provides a right to health insurances has seen a rise since 1985, in that year it totaled less than 10% of the federal budget, but by 2012 these programs took up 21% of the federal budget. Studies have shown that Obamacare will increase the federal deficit by $300-$700 Billion in the first ten years, and could increase the deficit to $1.5 trillion in the second 10 years. If everyone was covered by the universal right to health care than the federal deficit can even larger. I think politicians are mistaken because they look over the fact that by instating Universal health care, it could reduce the administrative cost. According to the American Medical Association, on average, private health insurance plans spend 11.7% of premiums on administrative costs vs. 6.3% spent by public health programs.
Why is this important? If you take the schools in California, whose school budget relies on attendance, this could mean big money. Megan Reilly, CFO for the Los Angeles Unified School District, has hypothesized that every 1% the attendance rate of schools districtwide goes up, an additional $40 million per year will be made by the schools (Lewis). As for efficiency, delaying school will help improve efficiency similar to sizing a class size down by 33%, as said by Teny M. Shapiro (Lewis). So, one can infer with the facts stated above that starting school would not be a waste of

but at what point were these goals accomplished when referring to Haiti’s situation? The 2013 MDR shows that there has been a 41% increase in the number of education and equality of both genders that were enrolled in educational system during these years in Haiti. The GDP per capita has increased from $1,548 in 2009, to $ 1,602 per capita in 2012. There has also been an increase in stabilization of extreme poverty and hunger by 24% in 2012, a decrease in child mortality, increase in water supply and sanity. But are these improvements are not sufficient because Haiti still faces hunger and food security at high rates.
In the article, “Why College Isn’t for Everyone,” Richard Vedder writes, “A person who compares the annual earnings of college and high school graduates would no doubt conclude that higher education is a good investment—the present value of the college earnings premium (the better part of $1 million) seemingly far outdistances college costs, yielding a higher rate of return” (Vedder 78). College graduates make more money because college trains its students to be more responsible, mature, and ready for their careers. Graduates are willing to go the extra mile to learn and make financial sacrifices for the profitable
