However that isn't reality. The truth is richer kids are more likely to become richer adults, kids that were well educated and socialised into a richer environment will want to keep that status.

Though, what about the kid whose family is so poor, that they can only afford a small amount of food, and they are starving. He or she is forced into the choice (internally) to drop out and get a job so he/she can help the family or start earning straight away.
Which is why I'm a communist.
