Discrimination, poverty and crime grip Chicago


Quote:
August was the deadliest month in nearly two decades in Chicago, with 400 people shot and 78 killed, a death toll that reflects the vicious circle of poverty that afflicts one of the US's most racially segregated cities. Some 40 percent of African Americans aged between 20 and 24 were out of work or education in 2014. Police have picked up an average of one gun an hour in the city this year through eith confiscations or turn-in programmes.

What the hell does "out of education" mean"?

@Ragman,
This means the individuals did not attend any sort of school. College, charter, GRE, high school, trade school or tech school. These are the guys, who need help.

@Miller,
What? Couldn't be. Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun laws in America! There is no way that so many people were shot in a single month as everyone knows that strict gun laws reduce crime!

(This is sarcasm for the impaired among us.)

What? Your yawner is about lack of education, diplomas, degrees and certificates, as well as high unemployment and the crime rate in Chicago. No educational facilities are mentioned.
