I didn’t know much about how a school looks at character and personality. I think it’s a good way to look at a student and further nurture the student from there. I think looking at one’s personality and character is a good way to look help the further improve on other areas. I think this is a good step to stop poverty with this method by nurturing them through character and personality and so not to look at only their education, so that they don’t feel pressured to have a need to do very well. What I am puzzled about is, what if they don’t improve from this?

If only there wasn’t as much drop out in USA, they would have earned more from taxes but being able to study is a blessing to them already have study but if they drop out for the family, think they will just cause their family to study from more poverty and so I think in a direction for their future, if their family could just provide a bit more, I think the students that drop out may be able to support their family in future.

I didn’t think that poverty and education would have such a big link. If you are going through poverty, I didn’t know that you might go through some type of mental illness. I know that we should be more sensitive about someone if they are undergoing through poverty or whatsoever. If they are suffering from some type of poverty then we shouldn’t continue teasing them. I am puzzled because of how poverty and education has such a big impact on each other
