EDUC 27 The Impact of Poverty on Education

Rising income inequality is undermining the ability of public K-12 schools to meet a foundational goal: to provide children from impoverished areas the opportunity to succeed. This course focuses on the forces that have translated the growing income gap into a growing education gap. We will examine primary research from various fields that details how poverty affects developing children, families, neighborhoods, and schools in ways that go on to affect educational outcomes. We will also consider how interventions strategically targeted at these contexts can improve the educational success of children growing up in poverty.



Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
