Gaurav Singh Poverty in the US 114006240 Response Paper 5 The belief that a person’s level of education influences their social status is a fallacy. Indeed, one’s education plays a role in determining his or her economic potential, but it is certainly not the sole underlying factor. When studying poverty statistics, one must consider a gamut of different reasons as to why people live in poverty. Among other criteria, a person’s living conditions, geographical area, parental presence, work ethic and character need to be taken into account. It is certainly undeniable, and a proven statistic that if someone has a higher education, they usually tend to have a higher salary and better living conditions. However, this is not always apparent in the realm of the modern era of poverty. I have heard through many class discussions that there are those select few, who barely finished high school, never went to college, and have still managed to be successful in their lives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
