One comment on “Lowering Down Payment Requirements Solves the Black/White Income Disparity?

  1. That’s assuming that a) kids have parents around (not often the case for lower-SES families) and b) the parents have the time/energy to care. Sadly, a lot of parents (of all SES brackets) think it is the school’s job to educate their kids and all they have to do is kick them out of the door in the morning. So what to do? Foist the responsibility back on the unwilling parents or take greater societal action? Maybe it’s just because of my profession but I think change needs to come at a social level. Increase minimum wage and job training at the same time increase mentor/sponsorships at low-SES schools to give teh kids the out their parents can’t provide. Just my liberal commie two cents ;)
