Course Description:

The Effects of Poverty on 21st Century Education will provide teachers and administrators the strategies, knowledge and skills required to understand and overcome the barriers of poverty. To achieve this, the course and content will draw upon the course textbook, “A Framework for Understanding Poverty,” by Dr. Ruby Payne. We may provide as educators many innovative and effective strategies to advance student reforms, but until we address and understand the impact of school sociology on academic achievement, school reform will not succeed. The creative feature of this course is bringing together the framework for understanding poverty in today’s education and the social context that traps so many intelligent and capable students in a self-fulfilling dead-end. By combining these two aspects of poverty, teachers and administrators will have the skill and knowledge base to effectively challenge the barriers of impoverishment.
