The fourth and final of a series of four articles, in podcast form, that address poverty is titled “Campuswide Interventions That Improve Student Achievement.” This article, written by Ruby Payne, founder and president of aha! Process, discusses real-world educational challenges, how they can impede student achievement, and how educators can make practical, tangible differences in student success.

In the article, Payne discusses the many expectations placed on teachers and the difficulties they face, including a lack of paid training opportunities, the need to teach to the test, and the expectation that they be well-versed in issues regarding  sexual harassment, inclusion, cooperative learning, reading strategies, legal guidelines, and more.

Although the articles in this podcast series were originally written for teachers, they may be helpful to those who are transitioning from being on welfare to joining the workforce.
