Local Non-Profit Leader Releases Book to Help Educators Understand Poverty in the Classroom
Our public schools are seeing a greater number of students living in poverty…students who approach life differently than those who have adequate basic resources. Many educators see the world through their middle-class worldview and may misinterpret behavior they see and ascribe negative connotations to how their students are reacting. Their assumptions can affect the quality of both the teaching and the learning that occurs. Most teachers have real passion for educating their students, but their experiences limit how they relate to the challenges some of their students face daily.
