Statement of the Problem

Poverty has always been the bane ***** society.

In modern-day times, with the easy spread of information, poverty is even more magnified. People in wealthy areas and situations are aware ***** exactly how poor people are wretched *****as, and, more critically, people ***** wretched areas are entirely aware how wealthy ***** in more fortunate areas. Civilizations have always had vast discrepancies of wealth -- as is *****dicated by every GINI study -- but today, the knowledge of that discrepancy ***** become an even more viable and potent cause for violent action.

The events of September 11th were engendered by religious differences, yes, but the root ***** is indisputably economic inequalities. The poor not only are *****, *****y now have access -- through technology -- to information like televisions which portray lives of opulence in other lands, and to weapons ***** mass danger. The ***** majority of the world's poor are just ***** -- poor. But there ***** those with violent proclivities who ***** have the means the impetus ***** cause significant harm to the people *****m they view as their oppressors.

As a solution to such violence, diplomacy and sometimes war are needed, as we are seeing in Afghanistan today. But these tools only speak to the symp*****ms ***** the problem. The cure must speak to the disease, and the ***** is poverty.

***** often, even after that realization, we ***** tempted to treat on ***** symptoms of poverty as well. For *****stance, ***** though the humanitarian aid rations dropped from tens ***** thousands of feet upon the Afghan people -- killing one Afghan women, no less -- had a distinct political message ***** well, ***** backbone thought behind the program was to help feed ***** same poor people we were bombing. Small yellow packages of food will ***** go so far in tackling the huge multi-layered problem of international destitution.

***** need to switch our focus from thinking in the now -- who can we feed to day so they don't attack us tomorrow? -- to how can we materially affect a group of people's lives such ***** ***** ***** earned ***** friendship and respect for decades to come? All this is, of c*****se, in addition to the simple ***** that poverty is an evil and needs be addressed.

One possible manner ***** which to speak to the d*****ease and not the symptoms is through educational programs for the ***** through the World Bank. The World Bank has been engaging in educational ***** ***** its target area countries for much of ***** 57 years of existence, but to mixed results and reviews.

***** paper will examine the efficacy ***** ***** World Bank's educational policies as perceived through vario***** literature ***** has been devoted to the subject recently. We ***** try to determine whe*****r the World Bank is truly addressing the root of the ***** of poverty by investing so many millions of dollars yearly on educating ***** poor.
