Obviously those who don't even try have zero chance of success.
many risks can be insured against. and if they failed to exercise such insured coverage, where their decisions, to opt out of insurance, good ones
i will assume you are addressing those rare instances when unavoidable, unpredictable calamity happens ... and to that i would submit it happens to rich and poor alike
Europe is in the midst of disaster, only, they do not realize.
kids raised in poverty can and do receive good educations in public schools
and by their efforts receive scholarships to attend public and private universities
and those who do not achieve academically at that level, there are loans which are available to them to attend those same institutions of higher learning
and to those who achieve even less academically, they have the opportunity to attend tech schools, again with costs borne by the state and thru government provided loans
all the student in the USA must do is achieve adequately enough in high school to be found academically eligible to attend one of those places of higher learning. the money is there for them to attend if they can meet the academic requirements
and despite that, many do not. the vast proportion of those who do not come from impoverished conditions. where education is not instilled as the path to economic success. because the parents are too stupid themselves to convey that reality to their kids
there are things that government does wrong, such as gerrymandering the attendance areas so that the affluent kids go to the good schools and the poor kids are forced to attend the weak schools. school administrations that do not know to let the teachers teach. but there is no valid excuse for a kid who knows they need to and who also wants to go to college not to do so. first, they must be able to dream it. but if they do, and they work towards that dream, they can get a good education
Opportunity is there for anybody that wants it.
At poor schools there were smart kids that did well despite challenges but the majority were either not interested in education AT ALL or were not smart enough to attempt an education.
At the rich school there were dumb kids that did not do well despite their parents money and there were kids that will skate by not caring just because their parents will get them in to better colleges, etc. later.
In education, these stereotypes are stereotypes because they are generally correct.Your idea that poor people stay poor because they dont show up to work on time or dont work hard is rediculous. Just because you can state ****ty stereotypes from inside your little box doesn't make that garbage true. Most positions that pay well enough to escape poverty require degrees.
Success breeds success. Ever seen the stats on the habits of wealthy parents. They spend more time reading, less time watching television. They eat as a family instead of tv dinner style, the differences between rich and poor families are stark
