I struggle with this article. While I feel that this inequity will continue, and only hurts America in the long run, I can say that I plan to give my daughter every single advantage that I can. Although, I don’t have affluent access to give her amazing advantages.
There needs to be a better focus in society to balance this issue. There are ways to create opportunities, and improve earlier education to erase those disparities as they take root and grow as kids get older. I fully believe that a first step to address poverty is education, and addressing it as early as possible. But there is a whole different discussion around education funding and support that needs to addressed and fixed first!
