Research from additional studies show that large proportions of children born into disadvantaged families do not enjoy high levels of educational success (Boston, 2013). Children suffering from the effects of poverty also have a lower prospect of achieving higher academic aspirations due to a strong belief that university studies is for those belonging to middle class families (Thrupp, 2006). Michael & Dwyer’s (2008) report concludes that the completion of education is clearly the best protector against long-term poverty. However, educational economist Helen Ladd (2012) suggests that
In fact, forty percent of the Math teachers teaching in poor districts and thirty-one percent of the English teachers teaching in poor districts do not the proper certification for the subject they are teaching. This is compared to the twenty-eight percent of Math teachers and nineteen percent of English teachers in richer districts (“Equity”). The expectations for students in poor districts are not the same as the expectations of students is wealthier districts. Students that receive A’s in poorer districts do not do as well on standardized tests as A-students in wealthy districts. Therefore, getting A’s in poorer schools does not hold the same weight as going to a “better” school and receiving an “ A” there, or better yet, having a chance to make the Honor Roll at the better school.
Teachers who are getting paid less are probably going to do a worse job right? WRONG! Private school teachers are usually paid about 12,000 dollars less than public school teachers ... ... middle of paper ... ...ver child they want into their school. Who know, but it seems that public education can and needs to be improved maybe slightly more than private education. Is money really the answer to everything?
Other symptoms of chronic stress are: increased chance or depression, slowing the growth of new brain cells, weakening of attention and concentration. Low- income students also have greater incidences of illnesses during class, absences from school and higher rates of tardiness. As a result, test scores are lower and that leads to less funding for schools to provide assistance for the struggling children. The theory Jensen discusses is that children from poor households have less nourishment from their parent(s): a parents level of education is minimal which doesn't help the child at all. The ASSETS Program is a great way for children that can’t afford extra help to get it.
They, also, more likely to have dropped out of high school before their arrest compare to their counterparts, consequently, will more likely to earn lower wages and are limited to work in certain industries.

Just like any other states, New Jersey schools may not have enough teachers and assistants that are qualified enough to handle such complicated structure, which impacts the success rate of providing disabled students equal education. “In New Jersey, the percentage of working age residents without a disability who have a Bachelor’s degree (nearly 38 percent) is more than double the percentage of those with a disability (almost 18 percent)” (Heldrich 2008). Since, disabled students are more likely to unemployed or underemployed compared to other groups, New Jersey will have to discuss how to allow disabled students to enroll in college-track and other rigorous courses so they can prepare for the job market.
The high poverty, educational environment the students are in leads to less high school graduation and college attendance, thus in turn will lead to a large population that will burden the United States economy later on in areas such as healthcare and welfare. On average, minorities attend schools that have less-experienced, lower-paid teachers who are less likely to be certified, poor graduation records, and high poverty rates. Many studies suggest that racial diversity is the key to... ... middle of paper ... ...cuses on the whole student body, not just one particular group, however both still lack the concrete evidence on how socioeconomically integrated schools benefit more over racially diverse educational institutions. Socioeconomically integrated schools are not a novel idea nor are they impossible to achieve. The first socioeconomic integrated school was in La Crosse, Wisconsin in the 1980s.
Income greatly impacts a child’s learning ability. In the United States, where a child attends school is based on where he or she lives, which is based upon the income of the family. Typically, families with lower income must send their children to poor quality schools. Schools in low income areas are more likely to have unsatisfactory teachers, or teachers with little experience because of the salary the school can offer. Even though many forms of financial aid are accessible to low income students wanting to attend college, there is no such acclaim available to low income families who would prefer to live in a higher quality school system (Rouse/Barrow, 1-2).
In the Article, On The Anniversary Of Brown V. Board, New Evidence That U.S. Schools Are Resegregating author Emma Brown states, “High-poverty, majority-black and Hispanic schools were less likely to offer a full range of math and science courses than other schools (Brown 5). This can often result in unqualified teachers and materials that are not useful. Not having sufficient funds to have a normal running good school is the whole reason why many of those students don't succeed. Money is the number one factor in having a successful school system. If there's no money then there are no supplies, and if there are no supplies then how are they supposed to learn.
These results seem more devastating when one sees Asian nations, usually ranking high in competitions, did not participate (McNamara 73). Examinations also reveal pupils' performances decline as students climb up the educational ladder toward college. "We seem to be the only country in the world whose children fall farther behind the longer they stay in school" ("Nation" 1). Yet, just comparing our students to international standards does not divulge the whole story. A big gap exists between stereotypical "poor" schools and "rich" schools.
But with that great arg... ... middle of paper ... ... the broader spectrum of students who take the test the lower the average score will be. While all children go to school here, in other countries it is rare that a high majority of the kids attend school. Students from other countries do not receive money for uniforms, books, lunch or other costs if they go to school it is because they are financially eligible to attend. Furthermore, living in poverty does in fact reduce one’s access to books, early academic head start programs, and many other assets that can increase a child’s learning’s. If a school tests only the most financially privileged the academic scores will be high, If a school tests all students it is obvious that the rate will decrease.
