“It’s easy for us, as adults, to look at other adults and see that a better education could help improve their lives. But the truth is, not all educations are created equal and many children are born into this world with incredible educational disadvantages that can be almost impossible to overcome.”

  1. I liked this article. I found that it was something that I have seen in the schools that I have worked in. When I worked in a school that was in a low income area I noticed they lacked many of the programs and supplies that were offered in the other schools that I had previously worked at. Our school lacked things as simple as books, or teaching materials or even programs that other schools had. They often had to limit their specials like art,music, and gym due to the lack of funding to pay for these teachers. These schools had to struggle to make or find what they needed for the students. I saw this on many occasions not just a few. That is the reason, I feel that these issues need to be more publicized so people know what is happening in our educational system and these students and schools are not forgotten.
