Here is the beginning of an article that I wrote for Shared Justice in June:
In President Jimmy Carter’s acceptance speech of the Nobel Peace Prize at Oslo, Norway in 2002, he said the greatest challenge the world faces is the “growing chasm between the richest and poorest people on earth.”
If the widening gap between rich and poor is a root cause of many of the world’s unresolved problems, then how is the issue of poverty reflected in the educational environment and experience of school children within our own cities, states, and country? More specifically, in light of high school graduation season, after receiving a public education, what do high school graduates have to look forward to?
