Dear Editor,

I am writing to express my concern about the situation of children from poor communities in our country. They suffer terrible social problems such as illiteracy and violence. I think we must do something to help them.

Teenagers who come from poor areas do not attend good schools. As a result, they cannot succeed in the future. In fact, many of them are out of work or get badly paid jobs. Yesterday I met a young man trying to sell his paintings in the street. Although very talented, he did not get into academy also did not get any job. Now he is homeless, unemployed and frustrated.

One possible solution is that the authorities should organise free state schools to provide all the students high academic standards. Moreover, students should be accepted regardless of background.

I would be grateful if you could publish my letter. Perhaps other readers would like to share their thoughts on this issue.

Yours faithfully,
