At Risk Youth
Definition—At-risk youth are unable to achieve the educational, economic, or social expectations of their community due to poverty, minority status, a deficiency in family support, or inadequate employment.
Being unable to achieve things can always be blamed on something, someone, some place, or some concept. One of the huge differences between liberals and conservatives in the attitude towards personal responsibility. Liberals simply don't believe in it. Conservatives recognize that personal responsibility is part of what makes America great.
Liberals don't think that people should have consequences for their actions. (unless the offender is a high profile conservative) Conservatives recognize that bad behavior without negative effects will only increase the bad behavior.
Liberals don't think that people succeed on merit, ability or ambition. They believe that failure is simply the result of some outside force (probably racism, sexism, classism, or some other ism) and that no amount of effort can overcome these isms. Conservatives realize that America is the land of opportunity. If you try your best, develope skills, and put forth your best effort while avoiding bad behavior then you will succeed.
