There is a perfect storm undermining something important about America: the opportunity for people born into poverty to advance over their lifetimes.
This book explores how to unleash opportunity in five key areas: early childhood, the graduation gap, foster care, juvenile justice, and predatory lending. For each issue, Michael Gerson explores the magnitude of the problem, Stephanie Summers applies a theological framework for considering solutions, and Katie Thompson tells the story of men and women who have journeyed through these issues.
Social mobility has become increasingly stalled in America, and the result is a class system in which birth equals destiny. Unleashing opportunity is now more important than ever.
