Students Uncover Realities of Poverty.
NBC News shared and discussed this fantastic video by two students from Troy. The video discusses the many realities of poverty in the U.S. and even focuses on Detroit, Michigan. The students, Jason Ji and Frank Boudon, make the case that the nation's poverty crisis could be solved by reforming education. We at KPRI could not agree more! Please take the time to look at the video here.
