Re: Why do we have Poverty in America

The articles talks about:

work fighting poverty that has helped millions of children by favoring practical steps over theory. their work had shown how poverty could be addressed by breaking it down into smaller and more precise questions in areas such as education and healthcare, and then testing solutions in the field.


1. well care,.is a physical exam, some shots for vacines and viruses at least once a year to asure the you have a doctors office that will keep you on file. The cost of the insurance to have that is not worth the billings for the premium as you will have paid way more for than the cost of the visit. It also does not cover dental, hearing or yes as these are not part of the care.

2. education, this one takes on much of the beurcratic garbage to operate the extra aids rather than focusing on how to help the child learn. This goes back to whom is paying the schools budgets which cause the non action or the less than desired helping efforts.

poor tax based communities struggle with both as earning are just not there to afford to shell out money thats needed for meals from the families income. Further compounding the situation is jobs for local are are few and means you further spend money to only make a marginally better wage but after deducting the cost for transportation you are still at the same economic level as if you had the local job. Raising the tax base from service to factory work is a step that many towns still struggle with even as they group in population.
