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.
Abstract Teaching with poverty in mind. Throughout the years there has been many questions and concerns about the education system in not only America but the world. One issue in particular that comes up would be, how attending a low income schools effects children and those also with special needs. There are many urban and areas of poverty that face this daunting task of trying to provide the best education that they can give to these children who have no choice but to attended a “failing or low- income schools.” Poverty effects people in many ways, which contributes to the lack of education and knowledge. There are many factors that play apart in why students in low income schools are failing not only in school but in life as well.
When they get to school, they see that there are fourty students, while the classroom designed for twenty. Many of them have no books and notebooks. In some cases parents think that education is not the real key to exit from working-class into upper. So as following, impoverished people do not value education Other thing is psychological part for working-class children. Lack of cultural experience, like attending restaurants, theatres etc.
Ragab (2010)Also, working children cannot find a compensation land between work and education. So, children divert from educational to the career life. On the other hand, some children tend to work to afford money for schools because their parents cannot afford
Poverty: the state or condition where a person is unable to satisfy their most basic human needs such as water, shelter and food due to lack to money, there are two types of poverty: Extreme poverty and moderate poverty. Extreme poverty is when people cannot obtain adequate resourced to support the minimum level of physical health. Some reasons for poverty include: • Poor education • High levels of unemployment in a country • Low level of skills • Lack of access to services • Family history • Born into a poor environment People living below the poverty line are required to get government assistance, poverty rates have however decreased because of an increase in social grants. Types of Poverty: • Absolute Poverty o The chronic lack of basic food, water, health and housing. People living in absolute poverty tend to struggle to live and experience more child deaths from preventable diseases like malaria, cholera and water contamination.
Poverty Around The World What is the poverty? Some people consider themselves to be poor not being able to buy a bigger house or a more expensive car, but there are some people out there cannot even afford to buy some groceries for their children. According to The World Bank Organization, poverty is hunger, a lack of shelter, being sick and not being able to see a doctor, not having the access to school and not knowing how to read. Poverty is not having a job, in fear for future, living one day at a time. (What is Poverty?)
Sometimes single parenthood leads children to malnourishment. It affects them physically and psychologically. Income from just one parent is the cause of poverty in single parent families, leaving children without basic needs. Knowledge of the ideal culture leave children with a feeling of lost. Giving all the materials objects to them because the other parent migrated to the U.S. is not justification for the love and values they lose.
The children of the undocumented are often subjected to countless disadvantages throughout not only their social lives but their academic experiences also. In many cases, the parents of the children come with little to no education, leaving the student rather isolated in the experience(Racial Domination).Whether or not the child was born in the United States or also crossed over the academic disadvantages seem to follow the child through their lives. From early ages many of the children of the undocumented are forced to go to schools in which they do not receive the same level of education or opportunities as kids whose parents make more money(white kids). Because their parents are forced to live in the shadows many can not even have open conversations with their kids teachers for free of persecution. In recent reports there have even been elementary schools which have been raided by immigration or (ICE) in order to both deport the children and their parents.
Another con is not being close to their family and they take advantage of the resources such as a washer or food. In the working/poor class, children have hardly no access to resources, they have to miss school because they have no clean clothes, or not being able to talk to a doctor because they have don’t have the language to communicate. Some of the pros are that they are around their family; they strive to be better and working harder. They will understand the value of a dollar. So my hypothesis was both right and wrong.
Numerous sociologists concur that adolescence 's unfriendly impacts outlast youth. It is troublesome for poor single parents to bear the cost of the books, home PCs, and private lessons that make it less demanding for their children to prevail in school. Essentially, they can 't bear the cost of garments, shoes, PDAs, and other shopper merchandise that give their children status among their companions. Additionally, numerous live in once-over neighborhoods with high wrongdoing rates, low-quality schools, and few group administrations. Reliable with these perceptions, numerous studies have demonstrated that economic assets clarify a portion of the distinctions in prosperity between children with single parents and those with persistently wedded parents.
One can assume that when a child is raised in poverty they often do not have access to food and proper clothing these items can make it hard for children to focus in school. Lack of focus in school will lead to a lack of success, which contributes to the lack of poverty, and it becomes an ongoing cycle. In a research done by John Hopkins it was concluded that “They found that a child 's fate is in many ways fixed at birth — determined by family strength and the parents ' financial status.The kids who got a better start — because their parents were married and working — ended up better off. Most of the poor kids from single-parent families stayed poor.”
The high percentage of economically disadvantaged students correlates with EISD’s low scores because it can be assumed that high school students below the poverty line must have some form of work or job after school, preventing them from being able to complete homework and study on a daily basis. This also inhibits their success on standardized tests and college readiness simply because they might not have the time to practice concepts or ask questions to understand testing material. Another key issue with economically disadvantaged students is the lack of parental support and guidance on the significance of studying at home. Many of the parents of economically disadvantaged kids did not obtain a higher level of education, which may impact their ability to help their kids, and worse, their ability to pass on the motivation needed for their kids to succeed in school. In addition, they could also be
I believe students from low-income communities face a huge challenge that results from inequalities in wealth distribution. Poor communities lack of distribution of resources that mainly benefit kids, women and the ederly. It is sad to see that to the world our country is presented at "the land of the opportunities," but in reality, there is little chance for poor people to enjoy of those "scarce opportunities." There are many ways in which the academic potential of a student living in these communities can be affected. For instance, a high school student who was exposed to math textbooks in his childhood because his or her community lacks of government resources, may face many difficulties and low performance in this subject.
