lifihai's insight:

I think it is very good that people are starting to include technology to help the poor. Having a tracking device so that people living in the disaster pron places can be tracked when danger strikes is a very good idea. I suggest that they can sell this product to other countries so that earnings can be a form of donations which will go towards helping people living in poverty . But my doubt is that will this be successful as this has never been introduced to the public before.

Rapidly growing inequality is worsening poverty around the world

Rapidly growing inequality is worsening poverty around the world | poverty assignment_lifihai | Scoop.it
A new report from Oxfam sheds light on rapidly growing extreme inequality and how it worsens poverty around the world, as Prime Minister Tony Abbott prepares to spruik Australia’s G20 agenda at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.
lifihai's insight:

it is truly a shock to know that people who are growing in wealth hides approximately half of their wealth so as to avoid paying more tax. I do know that tax partially are meant to help the poor therefore i believe it is necessary for everyone to pay fairly for tax which are at a reasonable percentage, but my only doubt is that why the government is not taking a bigger and stronger enforcement regarding people not paying the amount of tax they should be paying.

lifihai's insight:

some how i think this results are not shocking as different parts of the world students have the same problem. Due to bad living condition and even a certain kind of finanical stress, i think the school can help low income family students by giving extra classes, listening to them and see what they can help in. These will clear doubts between teachers and students. But it is also a question that why students isn't given educated about poverty or are the students being oblivion to this problem?

this article tells me that poverty affects the education and studies of students. those people who gains from free or reduced subsidies usually obtain lower or worse results than those who does not gain free subsidies. i believe that poverty affects education as most probably, those students are much more stressed and hungry than the rest. i think that we should helped the poverty students as usually, the people around them are not very educated and they wont have much people to clear their doubts.

I agree with Jarrod Liew. Those suffering from poverty have troubles learning as they are not well equipped with food. Hungry children cannot learn/study properly. The government should provide financial assistance to these children and help better educate them. Not only should the government help them financially, but also mentally. I also agree with Boyd's insight. If these children are very distracted due to the problems at home, they will not be able to concentrate properly.
