Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on poverty and education Paper must be at least 2250 words. Please, no plagiarized work! The paper shows another side of the picture with cities whose characteristics are the exact opposite of the aforementioned. The residents know the lowest levels of poverty, racial discrimination and segregation are high, and the majority of the people are not only unemployed, but a big percentage of their kids do not go to school. This situation aptly describes Newark City in New Jersey (City-Data).
This city has a population of approximately 227,000 people, and disappointingly, it had a poverty rating of 32% in 2013 (City-Data). The unemployment levels stood at 16% and the percentage of graduations from high schools and colleges was 22% (Spotlight on Poverty). In spite of its being large, Newark is among the cities which have a record of the highest levels of poverty and the lowest quality of education in New Jersey (Nutt). It records a very high number of crimes and a high number of school drop-outs every academic year. Why is this case? What makes this democrat-governed city a place which is associated with poverty? This work embarks on a discussion on the major causes of poverty and the poor education in Newark, and will also show the relationship between the two, carefully bringing out how the two factors are intertwined. The two categories of theory (absolute and relative) shall first be discussed and the theories proposed to explain the existence of poverty shall briefly be explained.
To most residents in Newark, there is no difference between absolute poverty and relative poverty. This is because, on a poverty scale, a big percentage of these people lie on the extreme negative side of the scale. For clarification, however, it is wise to make a distinction between absolute poverty and relative poverty. In absolute poverty, the individuals in this category lack the most fundamental essentials and needs. For example, they do not have clean and safe water to drink, have little food and have copious .housing and education issues, and most of their children have no access to education (Weebly). .
