There are many strengths that come with providing equity in education. When society cares for its members, such as its children - in return, these people will care for it’s society by be-
ing productive members. Being a successful student means that these young children will have the opportunity to manage their lives better. Quality schooling builds positive habits. These habits allow students to be better at organization and time management. These skills taught are only beneficial for students futures. These skills then allow students to apply them in their work place, which in turn allows them to work hard and make more money in their work place. The American Dream should be an equal opportunity for all to achieve. However, it starts with the equality for our children’s educational sake. References Duncan, G. J., & Murnane, R. J.
