Addressing the Impact of Poverty


  • Analyze the traumatic impact of poverty
  • Implement strategies for closing the achievement gap


There are between 15 and 20 million American children living in poverty today. Poverty impacts performance in class, as well as the ability to prepare for learning at home. For educators to overcome the devastating impact poverty has on learning, they must first understand the relationship between academic achievement and socio-economic status. Educators will gain strategies and tools to assist and meet the needs of impoverished youth.
