What are the ways that lower middle, working, & lower class children are severely disadvantaged

in the educational game as they have came from socioeconomic circumstances where intellectual & academic achievement is frowned upon, even disparaged? Educators & psychologists have endlessly confirmed that children from the lower socioeconomic classes have a DISTINCT disadvantage when starting school.They're oftentimes academically behind & low academic achievers because there are very few intellectual paraphernalia in their homes. Their parents simply don't have the educational wherewithal to effectively prepare their children for school & may even have a NEGATIVE attitude towards education.
