Mapping Decline: St. Louis and the Fate of the American City
Description of web site: "University of Iowa historian Colin Gordon is the author of Mapping Decline: St. Louis and the Fate of the American City: a book that investigates how Saint Louis changed during the twentieth century. In his research, Gordon utilized archival records as well as GIS techniques. He also created this series of four interactive maps as a companion to this book. Each of these maps illustrates a different phenomenon that shaped Saint Louis: white flight; laws and policies that deliberately created racial segregation; municipal zoning laws; and laws and policies that fit under the umbrella of "urban renewal." Each of these four maps includes a timeline accompanied by a short explanation, which allows visitors to learn how certain policies and laws impacted demographic trends." Similar practices took place in most other US cities.

Poverty - Public Education's Biggest Problem - Washington Post article
Two articles by Valerie Stauss in the October 18, 2013 and October 17, 2013 show the impact of poverty on education for poor kids and the impact of policy being driven by "elites" who have no personal experience with living in high poverty.

One paragraph reads "But education has a powerful role to play in combating poverty and its various manifestations. Not just by exposing children to career-advancing skills, but also by exposing them to a full range of potential interests and pursuits, by affording time and resources to discover what they care for and what they are good at, and by supporting creative thinking and creative action."

This type of support can be offered by non-school, volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs, even if it is not being fully offered in the local school.
