Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakotah is the poorest county in the US. It's estimated that 97% of the population lives below poverty. Children are the future and they are suffering the most. The education system has failed them, leaving them feeling hopeless. My goal would be to provide as many families with the food and necessities they may need just to survive. No child should ever go hungry. Public education is supposed to be provided to the public. Because they lack the taxpayers in this county, they lack the funding for public schools. Here, in Southern California, the schools worry about earning money to redo the gym or add a new pool. In Pine Ridge the students just want to get by. They just want to feel somewhat safe, not go hungry, and graduate high school. I am so disappointed in our country that this county hasn't received more attention. Let's please do something about this!
