Poverty and dropout rates are strongly correlated. New York City has the largest income gap in the U.S., and thirty percent of children in New York City live in poverty. Because of statistics like these, coupled with the fact that thirty-nine percent of New York City students who enter high school will not graduate on time, JAY Z and his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation joins United Way of New York City to get children and youth the education they deserve and to put higher education within reach for low-income students across New York City.
