BOSTON — Microsoft founder Bill Gates says success should not depend on the race or income of parents.

Gates told the National Urban League on Thursday in Boston that people in education  must “end the myth” that poverty needs to be eradicated before reforming education. He also mentioned that he believes a high school degree is no longer enough.

Gates says access to quality education would help in the battle against poverty.

The Microsoft founder joined Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates at a forum on education.

The National Urban League is holding its annual conference in Boston.

Officials of the group have warned that failure by Congress to prevent a federal debt default risks putting black and Latino families further behind economically.
