People enter poverty willingly?
Did you really just type that?
What’s your background, if you don’t mind me asking?
They may not know they are willingly entering poverty by the choices they make but they willingly make those choices which lead to poverty, nonetheless.
Poverty is mostly voluntary.
I agree, like when a baby volunteers too come out of the vagina of a poor mother,lives in a shitty crime infested neighborhood and attends an overcrowded, underfunded public school, then if they’re one of the few that graduate good luck coming up with the money to attend college.
I do think that everyone controls there own destiny,but upward mobilility is becoming more and more difficult for children born into poverty while those of the rich very seldom fall into it.
So a child can never decide to get out of poverty once he becomes an adult?
Would you enslave your own poverty stricken child with these beliefs?
Yes, I agree some parents choose poverty for their children too but that doesn’t mean that child will be necessarily bound to that life.
My point was just that as education has become more and more important in advancing economically,the quality of it in public schools has slid backwards and a college education has become more expensive too obtain.Children born into poverty now face a more difficult path out of it than those in past generations.
You think the average American kid has it harder than the average Chinese or Indian kid?
Do you mean Chinese or Indian immigrants or those in their native country? As far as this country anything I’ve read on upward mobility in this country has said that its become more difficult,Im sure there would be some differences from race too race but I dont see how it would be relevant.
