My approach to poverty is eminently practical: Having worked for many years in schools and school districts, I know firsthand that teachers need down-to-earth, relevant strategies in addition to theory. Their mission—and it is a critically important one—is to reach the children in their classrooms. They are on the front lines of social change, one student at a time.
The purpose of the book is to help those teachers, principals, district leaders, counselors, school nurses, and the many other educators who work with the poor to positively impact the opportunities of their students/clients by:
- Naming the experience of generational poverty
- Identifying the tools and resources necessary to become educated
- Providing intervention strategies
