    The sample consists of women between the ages of 35 and 44 and numbers 2, Variations in student achievement can be explained by differences between schools and by differences between children. When these kids succeed, as is virtually inevitable, the system is set up to make it clear to them that they have succeeded not because of any of these advantages, but rather because they worked hard, had special skills and natural gifts — that is, they merited their success. Religion provides a pathway for children to interact constructively with both their peers and their superiors, which generally encourages improved academic performance. A fair amount is already known about the relationship between education and poverty in Latin America. This was after it was cancelled in when its director Vuyokazi Biyana became unwell leading up to the event.

    However, most students in Latin America don't get this chance because schools are very segregated by family income and sometimes ethnicity. What is worse is that their children have limited opportunities to learn. And this is a real problem. Virtually all parents want their children to make the best of their lives, but by ignoring the life experience of these parents we might as well stand at the school door with a pitchfork as they seek to enter.

    As the economy becomes more global and knowledge-based, those with the greatest access to knowledge will benefit the most from the opportunities resulting from the integration into the world economy. The type of schooling they are offered is often not equal to that provided to better-off children. When these kids succeed, as is virtually inevitable, the system is set up to make it clear to them that they have succeeded not because of any of these advantages, but rather because they worked hard, had special skills and natural gifts — that is, they merited their success. Intergenerational closure, then, encourages role modeling and mentorship, within both the parent-child relationship and relationships with other adults.

Schooling in Disadvantaged Communities book

Although most poor children enter first grade, they enroll in schools of lower quality, and are more likely to drop out after completing a few grades. All students deserve a quality public education, and this can only occur when we close the gaps in equity and access.

For at-risk youth, religious practice reduces socially deviant behavior.
