Poverty at SJSU

Poverty where we are
When I used to take my kids to school at our home near Los Gatos, California, there would often be lines of SUV's built by companies like Lexus and Cadillac waiting to get into the parking lot. But here at San Jose State University, if you look in the morning, you can see that reality is not shared by all. SJSU is between a public school and some relatively low income housing. Parents here do not have Lexus's or SUV's or even cars. They get their kids to school any way they can, and on their way they cross right through the heart of our campus.
