Exploding America’s myth that education is the anecdote to poverty

Matt Bruenig writes for Salon that “fixation on education as a solution to poverty, inequality or any other distributional problem is totally wrongheaded. Good and equitable education is a huge plus for all sorts of things, but it doesn’t create an egalitarian society.

Bruenig says that Finland’s income distribution process is the real reason behind that country’s reduction in its poverty rate, not its widely regarded public education system.
