    Do you believe that nowadays in the United States of America,  in order for children to become educationally & ultimately socioeconomically successful adults, he/she must be born into the right environmental circumstances i.e. having educated parents & come from a solidly middle, upper middle, & upper socioeconomic backgrounds?  Do you further contend that children born in the wrong, worst of circumstances i.e. have less educated parents & come from lower middle, working, & lower socioeconomic backgrounds won't succeed either educationally nor socioeconomically?   Or do you believe that there are factors beyond a child's socioeconomic circumstances that either propels or precludes his/her educational & socioeconomic successes such as intelligence, being self-motivated, having initiative, & a work ethic?
