Thomas, your post I like but someone who is looking at this for the first time I myself am sort of confused do you mean that, because of the construction of the bullet train it will either raise or lower the prices on food to other people. If you are making this claim I would suggest this article…[Read more]
Hi Amran, I really found your post very similar to how economically small businesses work here in Utah, Salt Lake City. I can add by saying many small businesses rely heavily off of the local customers and consumer to help finance their businesses and keep them running. I will also say it’s very sad when these small businesses like you said (many…[Read more]
Javier, I really enjoyed reading your post. You made it clear that poverty is a problem in the world, and that poor people feel this problem separates them from other people. I liked that you had useful examples when you said “most poor people are discriminated in the workforce and in society for their economic status, plus the act of giving to…[Read more]
Javier V, I found your “Senior Project” research to be very compelling in how fast-food companies are selling cheap alternative food options to the poor at a low cost.

This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
