Why do students in low socioeconomic areas have lower achievement and academic success?
This is an important study due to the fact that there are so many students that teachers see slip through the cracks of the educational system. This may be due to their living environment of which they have no control such as housing issues, lack of parental involvement, nutrition and the well being of the child. As teachers, it is our job to give every student a chance and bringing this topic to the surface will raise awareness and hopefully involvement. When the awareness is recognized, programs and policies can be implemented to help students who are struggling.
