A matter of Social Science
Re: Some parents need to change their mindsets
If you study sociology you will find very few people move up from the socio economic level they are born into. This is a fact.
If you study psychology there are a variety of theorists who discuss hierarchy of needs. Basically unless a person can meet their basic need of food, safety, and shelter they rarely move to higher levels of actualization such as a vision of an education and a future.
These people need social programs that meet their basic need of food and safety before they can even think of education for their kids. It’s social science.
