Although sports its not part of education, students do better when playing a sport that they enjoy. Another cause of inequality is buildings from poor cities schools are rusted and old. In comparison to rich public schools have new buildings, desk, or classrooms. All schools should have the right for their school to be a welcoming clean environment. Furthermore, teachers are being unequally underpaid, Dennis Condron says, “Conversely, high-poverty schools are staffed by less experienced and lower-paid teachers” (294). All public schools should be able to hire experienced qualified
