    Okay, so we have a bad teacher for human geog, and I can't find much info out there. I have two textbooks - only one mentioned deprivation and the other one only mentions social progress.
    I have this definition for deprivation: "When people lack the things they would expect to have in the 21st century, such as jobs, a certain level of income, affordable housing, access to services such as schools and health care."

    I don't get the difference between deprivation and social progress though. I think that they both include and cover housing opportunities and economic opportunities. However, stuff like education opportunities, percentage of people with certain qualifications, quality that people rate their health, political status, etc, is that included under deprivation? Or is that only to do with social progress?

    Can someone explain please?

    Thanks
