Poverty affects education — and our systems perpetuate it
from The Huffington Post (commentary)
It's hard to argue that poverty does not affect education. It's hard to argue that children who come from homes where they may be wanting — wanting for food, for time, or for resources — don't enter the school door with a little less than others. And it's hard to argue that children living in poverty and attending schools that are underfunded, under resourced, and understaffed are not literally up against the system.
