Breaking the Cycle of Poverty Through Educational Opportunity (MLF)
Monday, January 27, 2014 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (PST)
San Francisco, CA
Lynne Martin, Executive Director, Students Rising Above in San Francisco
For students from low-income families or whose parents never went to college, finding the resources to pay for higher education is a challenge. Martin examines the social importance of helping disadvantaged kids finance a college degree without taking on burdensome debt that would only postpone prosperity for themselves and their communities. She will also discuss the growing racial divide between students attending elite private schools and those going to public universities due to a lack of financial support.
