The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between students, families and education staff in a poverty level urban neighborhood. A central concern of this study is to look beyond the structure of our educational system, digging deeper into the inequalities and where they stem from. What factors make some low-income, urban, children more at risk of such disparities, than others? What needs to be done to support the social/academic development of children and what can be done to prevent this in the future?
