Explain how there is social injustice in the poem 'An elementary school classroom in a slum' in 50-100 words

Dear Student,

The poet highlights how due to poverty, the children of slum-dwellers are devoid of any energy. Their life is miserable and their future is bleak. The do not have access to basic facilities necessary for the cognitive development of children. In absence of such facilities, they face obstacles in acquiring proper knowledge. Therefore, when they grow up they remain unemployable. They are forced to become criminals for earning their livelihood. In this way, the poet has pointed the social injustices suffered by the slum children. He has blamed the capatlist economy that excarbates income inequalities as the primary reason for their drudgery and deprivation.
