Quite right. I used to work in a very underprivileged school. 100% at-risk, free breakfast and lunch program kids. Housing projects and ramshackle homes that were barely standing. Obviously, everyone was on every welfare program possible.
The children, however, didn’t want at all for logoed NFL and NBA jerseys; the newest Air Jordans were on their feet. On those rare occasions when a mother would actually come in for a conference…well, I always admired their handbags. *I* couldn’t afford Coach on what I was making, but somehow, they could. :-)
