The failure of the U.S. to reverse its widening education gap has gone on too long. The social stratification and economic isolation among various demographic groups that we see today, if left untreated, can transform into a significant threat to the U.S. economy and general social stability.

Adult education programs are crucial to alleviating this gap and helping all Americans achieve economic and social mobility. What is adult education?

Adult education programs serve those 16+ years of age who are no longer enrolled in school (or required by state law to be enrolled), and are functioning below the high school […]

Is Fort Worth As Doomed As This 500-Page Report Makes It Seem?

January 18, 2018 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: not sure


Sundance Square (Photo: Jeremy Enlow) The nearly 500-page economic development plan commissioned by Fort Worth officials and released a few weeks ago was so honest that even Dallasites were concerned about its findings.

The Dallas Morning News urged Fort Worth to not give up its Cowtown image, calling it a folksy and quiet place that cherishes its cowboy history. A tongue-in-cheek op-ed in The News suggested Fort Worth just resign itself to its little sibling status. Many Fort Worthians were not amused.

Readers pushed back in the comments section of a Fort Worth Star-Telegram editorial agreeing with the report’s hard […]

This Way Up: New Thinking About Poverty and Economic Mobility

January 18, 2018 ·  · Topic: Economic Mobility  · Relevance: bad

This booklet of short essays commissioned by Opportunity America in conjunction with AEI showcases some […]

The states with the highest rates of food insecurity among working adults were New Mexico (15.3 percent), Mississippi (14.0 percent), Louisiana (14.0 percent), Arkansas (13.5 percent), and Maine (12.9 percent).
