2. Not many Americans have had the same community service opportunity as you have had this semester, how do you propose to get people more involved so that they can see poverty first hand?

3. From the various ideas and solutions presented in chapter 6 of “Our Kids” (Putnam, 2015) defend the TWO which you think are the most important and why.

4. I had a wise former student state: “If the cause of living in poverty is not addressed then a ‘cure’ and road map out of poverty may lead right back to a life of poverty.” Which road is more difficult to travel: the road leading to a life of poverty, or the road that leads one out of poverty? What do you think?

5. Now that you have completed the course, take a few minutes to review the key issues we have discussed throughout the course by looking over the following facts and taking one last quiz (choose one)
