Teaching Children in Poverty: A New Series from SNN

Tuesday, School News Network launches a continuing series on poverty in the schools and how it affects students’ learning.

We will examine not only the problems poverty creates for students and their families, but the schools and strategies that are helping disadvantaged students succeed.

We begin the series with an in-depth look at Godfrey-Lee Public Schools, the poorest school district in the Kent Intermediate School District.

Watch for stories starting Nov. 4th such as:

  • Honor Student, Athlete & Homeless
  • Ways We Punish Schools for Having Large Numbers of Poor Children
  • How Poverty Effects Student Achievement
  • How is Rural Poverty Different from Urban Poverty
