People Not having a Job Because they were born into Poverty?
Debate Rounds (3)
Now to me, this appears to be quite naive.
Poverty is often centralized around a particular area, the poverty in that area not only effects the people, but the hospitals, the recreation centers and perhaps most destructively the schools. So these children born into their relative deprivation find themselves with less education and therefore less opportunities to escape their social situation.
The lack of education, plus a lack of opportunities creates a cycle of poverty that is passed down from generation to generation.
Living in an impoverished area generally means that a heightened use of slang will occur, this is the form of english that the child will learn. How could the child then achieve a good education when all the school textbooks are written in a language that is only partially understandable, this is called the restrictive code and is a widely accepted sociological theory.
I will ask you a simple question, and i would like an honest answer.
after trying your best in a losing battle against education and leaving school with poor grades.
You are faced with two options
Would you clean public toilets for 15k a year
or stay at home and recieve 15k a year?
The answer is simple.
