As income inequality continues to increase, the gap in educational attainment increases as well. Income inequality is the primary reason for the achievement gap between high- and low-income students, which is 30 to 40 percent larger than it was a generation ago.

It’s really hard to argue against class as a system of inequality with these kind of statistics. I really don’t understand why people don’t view education as a long term investment. Higher educatation means higher earnings, which means more tax revenue. We need to stop looking at our budget to try and find quick fixes, and adjust for the long term.
