Presentation Title/Description: Let’s talk about how to help kids that come to us from poverty
The single most consistent predictor of a student’s success in school is their family income level, yet we often skirt around this issue in education reform discussions. Let’s have a conversation about what these kids need, how we can best help them break the bonds of generational poverty, and how we can harness the power of social networks to bring educators together to tackle this very tough and necessary topic.
