Summary

New chapters on the brain, intersectionality, and parents. Simple, proven strategies that schools can start using today. With a view through an economic lens that has only become sharper and more focused since its initial publication in 1995, the premise owned by A Framework for Understanding Poverty is unchanged: Middle-class understandings of children and adults in poverty are often ill-suited for connecting with people in poverty and helping them build up the resources to rise out of poverty and into self-sufficiency.

Nearly 25 years and 1.8 million copies later, innumerable individuals and groups have used this book to create a groundswell of responses to the challenge of poverty. Educators, social service and healthcare workers, law enforcement and the judiciary, communities, employers, and individuals from all walks of life are engaged in supporting children and adults to build resources, patterns of learning, and behaviors that will help them exit poverty.

Expanded edition includes:

  • Best practices teachers can use immediately to improve outcomes
  • Deep dives into the mindsets of generational poverty, middle class, and wealth
  • New case studies, exhaustive references, and an evolving understanding of poverty's intersections with race, health, immigration, and more.

Thought provoking

Made you consider your own life experience, however it seemed to take away agency from the poor and brought up the wage gap myth.

Excellent resource

This is an excellent resource for teachers that should be required reading for all new teachers, not just those who teach children in poverty. My only hesitation is that the narration of the audiobook is not enjoyable to listen to. Despite this, the information is certainly worth everyone’s time and the Audible credit.
