Kar Hang Cheung's insight:

One of every five children in Colorado Springs,live in poverty.The homeless population has been increasing rapidly,due to one reason, the lack of affordable housing.This is only part of the reason,the bigger problem,lies with the income of the family,an illness or loss of job can put them on the streets already.I also agree that it takes the community to overcome this issue and that it is necessary to let the less fortunate know about the difficulty of helping them.

people now adays have lack of affordable houses which makes life difficult as everyone would one to finish work and go home to a warm and comfy sheter for the night , but now prices are rapidly rising and most people cant afford to buy houses this days

The homeless are perceived not as poor and vulnerable people who lost their homes but as criminals by other people is a common issue, however the wise government would reject such criticism instead to codify law and spend money to build accommodations, training them etc. in order to protect those people. I think those people who are homeless is quite pity, they may prefer to spend the night outside, no matter how cold the weather, than to face potential violence or being robbed of their meagre possessions.“Last year, Rhode Island became the first state to pass a state-wide homeless people’s bill of rights. Building on the community organizing that led to this success, social justice organizations around the country have been working on bills that aim to protect the rights of homeless people.” And the long-term answer of government is a coherent housing policy for the poor and vulnerable.

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training

Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Education and Job Training | Poverty Assignment by_Cheung Kar Hang | Scoop.it
For too long, the national dialogue about college education has been focused on access and affordability.

Via Laurent J.V. Dubois
Kar Hang Cheung's insight:

In the world today, a college degree is essential to get a stable job,but the expense of college is increasingly beyond the reach for millions of students.The challenges are faced by low-income students and first generation of children in their family.Students Rising Above(SRA) is an award, and i find this award very meaningful as it prepares student in need to the challenges they will face when they start working.This article tells me that the cycle of poverty repeats itself,unless we stop it,which is what i find SRA very useful.Students living in poverty was not given a chance to study,therefore not getting a good job or even a job,and will remain living in povery.With SRA they are giving a chance to study better and hopefully get a job and break free from poverty.In conclusion,i feel that this article is meaningful as it lets us know that  poverty cycle,could be broken

well through this article, people have been educated. they might have been taught of the problem of poverty. thus they might be able to play a role in helping the problem. another thing is that through education, they are able to find jobs more easily. they will also be able to feed their own family. so the more people get jobs, the lesser people will turn to poverty. thus through education, the problem of poverty might just be lessen down!

Using the See Think Wonder routine. From this Acticle I can see the Education is link to Poverty. Without Education we will not have the knowledge and without education knowledge we will not have jobs to help us earn money to make a living. People who does not have educations will not have jobs and will not have earning which leads to poverty. Families without Education will not be able to take care of thier children and they will get sick and may lead to death. I wonder why people don't feel thankful for having education, other people who wants education does not even get to have.

In today's world, a college degree is something that is very important to have in order to have an good and stabled employment. The challenge for the people in poverty is the high expenses for college. This is increasingly beyond the reach for millions of youths and their families in not just to people who are in poverty but to even families who are in middle class economically. I think that this article is interesting as it tells us the problem with the educational system in our current generation, and also telling us the good solution to giving students from a low income family a chance to prove their worth and have a bright future. All this could start in high school by preparing them the best they can in order for the students to attend college.

Kar Hang Cheung's insight:

Hundreds of asylums seekers in Scotland,including children and pregnant women were left homless and unwanted.They have nowhere to go and have no shelter.Campaign was set up to let the Scots to open their eyes and help stop the deliberate policy.People are not entitled to work therefore having to money to buy their daily needs.Many are destitude for years, and some suffer from eviction,therefore losing their home.I feel horrible reading about it, i hope this problem would be solved soon by the campaign.
