Description

Developing children statistically learn more from their schools and social surroundings than their own families. If this is the case, then why not spend more on the public education system where 90% of kids attend? My presentation will focus on the economic aspects of the public education system as well as the implications that not having enough funding can cause these students and their surrounding communities. The purpose of this research is to shed light on the lack of resources in many communities and the consequences that stem from this. Similarly how children in these communities, being made up of primarily minorities, continue on to the school-to-prison pipeline. As well as some of the changes that must take effect in order to fix the system for generations to come.
