Statement of the Problem

Poverty has always been the bane of 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 *****, and, more critically, people ***** wretched areas are entirely aware how wealthy people 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 has become an ***** more viable *****d potent cause for violent action.

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

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

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

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

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

This paper will examine the efficacy of ***** World Bank's educational policies as perceived through various literature ***** h***** ***** devoted to t*****e subject recently. We will try to de*****rmine whether the World Bank is truly addressing the root of the problem of poverty by investing so many millions of dollars yearly on educating ***** poor.
