    There is no compelling evidence that education alone eradicates poverty; thus, I stand by my (2). . .

    My 29 years as an educator and research have taught me that lesson. I entered education as a social reconstructionist, but now realize that is an idealistic philosophy not suported by evidence. I stand with Martin Luther King Jr.:

    "We are likely to find that the problems of housing and education, instead of preceding the elimination of poverty, will themselves be affected if poverty is first abolished."
