Low Income Families According to Tough (2016), “In 2013, for the first time, a majority of public-school students in this country -51 percent, to be precise- fell below the federal government’s low income cutoff, meaning they were eligible for a free or subsidized school lunch” (pg. 58). Children whom come from

How Socioeconomic Status Affects Child and Adolescent Development Socioeconomic Status is where a particular person or group of people stand in regards to social class. The main measurement that determines one's socioeconomic status is level of education, occupation and income. Although it may not be considered a factor in child development, socioeconomic status can actually play a huge role in determining what kind of adolescent a child develops into. It can influence a child’s morals, self-esteem, grades and many more aspects of a child's life. Socioeconomic status can play a role in determining where a person resides, the occupation they end up getting, their education and their income as well. So, although one’s socioeconomic status is technically made up of these aspects, one can be born into a low socioeconomic status which could result in them continuing to have one throughout their life. It is a cycle that one must break in order to change the outcome. Low socioeconomic status can result in child poverty. Child poverty over the years has risen and fallen but has remained consistently apparent in America. Child poverty can have detrimental effects on developing children and adolescents. It may influence the way they are raised, taught, cared for and many more aspects of the child's life which are important for successful development. Low socioeconomic status can determine how well children and adolescents develop and the type of person they develop into, including
Eventually from socioeconomic disparities, a factor affects low income students from priming them from college is the maintenance of the school. The lower the maintenance of the school like poor hygiene and change of teacher will affect the students highly. It may come to a surprise that hygiene affects the mentally of the low-income school but it does because it distracts them. In the encyclopedia, Multicultural & Diversity Education, it describes that the many disparities that low-income schools face when being in the environment they are in. For example, they provide the example of “Cockroaches, rats, and and other vermin that can be found in the schools” (Multicultural & Diversity Education 119) when attending low-income schools because
Socioeconomic status influences health care quality and outcomes. Patients of lower socioeconomic status are more likely to have worse self-reported health, lower life expectancy, and suffer from more chronic conditions when compared with those of higher socioeconomic status. As a result, patients of lower socioeconomic status, in which we will
Poverty is the condition of being without adequate food or money. American Psychological Association (MLA):
While obesity and overweight levels have been rising for all socioeconomic groups, some groups of people are more affected than others. Relationships between socioeconomic status and obesity undoubtedly have complex explanations. Some studies have shown that people with low socioeconomic status are more likely to be overweight or obese
“In the United States, child poverty rates are higher than rates for the adult and elderly populations.” (Katherine Magnuson and Elizabeth Votruba-Drzal 1) As poverty rates increase, more children are involved. Children, uninfluenced by the evils of the world, are pushed by these harsh living conditions and treated unfairly by others. Growing up in poverty can lead to lasting effects, and those effects include education issues, physical health is proven worse, and inadequate behavior. As an adult, these issues can turn into whether or not survival is promised.
Socioeconomic status (SES) is the strongest determinant of health outcomes (Marmot & Bell, 2011). Parents and children of lower socioeconomic status are at higher risk of negative oral health outcomes and poor oral health-related quality of life (Jones, Shi, Hayashi, Sharma, Daly, & Ngo-Metzger, 2013 and Wells, Caplan, Strauss, Bell & George, 2010). Women with lower socioeconomic status are 30% less likely to utilize dental services. Likewise, they are 30% more likely to report unmet dental needs than women in higher socioeconomic gradients (Kaylor, Polivka, Chaudry, Salsberry, & Wee, 2010).
Education plays a larger component in the lives of people all around the world since it gives them capital, such as human, cultural, and social capital. Furthermore, education provides populations with all sorts of skills that can improve their quality of life. However, there happen to also be inequalities
I agree with you Rezina, that low-income elderly people are very much affected by socioeconomic status. Because of the rising health care cost and high co-pay or deductible many patients with limited income, hesitate to go the doctor. Many low income elderly cannot afford because of the high cost
Socioeconomic status has a large effect on poverty rates and occupational status. Commonly, an individual within the lower social classes tends to fall under the poverty line as well. Individuals who live in a low socioeconomic status area and/or are below the poverty line, commonly reside in living conditions that
For most of my childhood, our family had a low socioeconomic status which relates to poverty, lower education and poor health. I was a white male, living as a minority in town with a high crime rate, but the rest of the county was wealthy. More people are arrested in my town in comparison to every other town in the county. My sister was sick all the time and we didn’t have the money to afford all the doctor bills, which only got my father angry and more abusive. We certainly lived below the poverty line and lacked the resources. The elementary and middle school in my area was run down and lacked the funding and resources too. The low socioeconomic status was only delaying my transition into adulthood. Ciabatarri (2017) explains that the middle class is shrinking and the unemployment rate is high for workers in the twenties, which only causes concern and affects the future of these young adults. This
Ayana Lilly Mrs. Behrend AP Seminar 14 December 2015 Is Intelligence the Key to Success? Intelligence is thought to have a major impact on future success, although some might disagree. Many people believe that in order to do great things in life one has to be intelligent or one will fail miserably. Research has shown that people with higher IQ’s tend to make more money and are able to be more successful throughout their life. Factors such as socioeconomic status (SES) can impact students’ school performance and the amount of schooling received can impact anyone’s intelligence and learning (Ceci and Williams page#?Ceci, Stephen J, White, and Williams)., The amount of education a parent received can impact their child's educational and occupational
I could best describe my family being from a lower-working-class socioeconomic status during my childhood years. I base my answer on the fact that my father came to the United States as a migrant-worker when he was only 12 years old, never finishing up middle school. After years of coming back and forth from Mexico to the U.S. my father finally establish himself and meet my mother who only finished middle school. The biggest stress my family experience during my childhood was after the fact that my parents separated and my father gain full custody of me and my two siblings. Since he didn't have any family in the U.S. he was forced to take us (his children) to Mexico to be under the care of our grandparents while he stayed in the U.S. working
