Finances have an effect on future education too. Research shows that students who live on a low income more more likely to fail a grade or drop out of school early. That is not hard to imagine, because of the difficulties we have just talked about.
- Living on a low income means there is less money for education after high school, like college or university
- This could mean you are not able to get the education you need for the job that you want
- It is not easy to get a good paying job with little education
- We will talk about jobs and employment in the next blog
People with more education tend to lead a healthy lifestyle and be more involved in the community. Why might that be?
