From the Paper:

""An estimated one million children in the United States experience homelessness in a given year," while other people live in a mansion and drive a fancy car (Rafferty 70). J. Kozol discusses his personal experiences with children living in poverty and how it affects these children in his article called, "Children's Ordinary Resurrections: Hope Held Hostage." Kozol writes about a community in South Bronx, New York where the community mainly consists of African Americans and Hispanics with only 1 percent of the people being white. Kozol's description of the children living in South Bronx is similar to the conditions of other areas of the United States with many children living in poverty and/or homeless, which affects the education of these children, leaving a hopeless situation for them."
