Economics, racism, and education all play a very important part in today’s society. The history of these themes in America have determined a state of existence for many minority and low income neighborhoods. This thesis attempts to show that because of inequality in America, schools in low income communities suffer, and thus the students themselves suffer. In order to completely change this negative feedback loop, where low income area students go into underprivileged schools to experience classrooms which lacks resources and low graduation rates come out to a racist and strife ridden community, we need to give more federal funding to low income area schools. Low income areas suffer high rates of stress as well which also diminish low income test scores and graduation rates. In order to help these communities from the inside out, improved federal funding targeting these struggling schools can even the playing field, and lower rates of stress.
