This is how I feel too. I have been thinking about this a lot lately, and it seems to me that people have little to no insight about the lifestyles of people who live outside of their social class. Which kind of makes sense, because for the most part, people only interact with other people within their own social class, meaning it's really easy for anyone to assume that everyone has a lifestyle that is similar to his or her own. This makes it easy for people to look at poor children and say, "the reason they're doing poorly in school is because they're not working hard enough," or "they're not achieving because they're not smart," when really, these people are just not understanding that having limited access to economic resources makes every aspect of living more difficult.
