Effect of social classes on education
Does social class affect the quality of education provided in the United States of America? It’s no surprise that schools in wealthy communities are better than those in poor communities, and that they better prepare their students and it does affect how the education is decoded by the child, so in a way social class has a big influence on children’s future.
