Poverty and Education: Solutions?

Poverty and Education: Solutions? | Oakland County ELA Common Core | Scoop.it
Poverty effects education.  It effects test scores.  It effects teacher and student motivation.

 

Time to rethink all the sloppy attempts at reform.  We are missing the boat.

Bharath Gessian's curator insight, February 4, 2013 9:34 AM

Education is one of the most important thing in life and it matters alot. Without it you would not be able to get a proper job and a proper salary. I thought poverty only affects in food, water and socially for a child but i was surprise that education plays a big part when your are poor and it is a big challenge to overcome it. This will afftect the students studying in the school. He will have negative thoughts about himself and will be anti social. They are doing part time job while studying and it will really afect thier studies as it is difficult to multitask.Eventually they drop out or do badly. Hence if they work hard with the right midset, they can definely succeed

Edwin Ong's curator insight, January 18, 2014 2:40 AM

Poverty is really getting serious day by day and it causes many problems to humans. It is the starting problem of many problems and this makes a never-ending cycle once started. As seen from the news above, poverty is started and it affects education, followed by the test scores. It even has the ability to affect teacher and student motivation. Therefore concluding that the word "Poverty" is related to just about every possible negative life outcome one could imagine.

After reading this particular article, I felt disappointed and at the same time, worried for the education system there. I am depressed to learn that the school reform efforts actively ignore the research on poverty in education. They focus instead on test scores and even gaps between high scores and low scores! Seeing that efforts have been made to try and fight the effects of poverty but ultimately losing because of being exhausted, dispirited, I felt worried for the people who are living there in poverty. Even the politicians dare not say the word "Poverty", who knows what will hapen next!

In many cases, i truly believe that poverty can be stopped by helping those in need. For example, we can start to make a difference by helping the needies by donating some money to different charities.

Not onl;y helping  charities, we can also start to give some money to elderies when they sell tissues in the market or hawker centres.

I believe that "to give is to receive". We can and have the ability to stop poverty from spreading throughout the world.

Benjamin Ho's curator insight, January 27, 2014 9:46 AM

My insight

Poverty affects education, i think that that is very true. when students have to worry about their daily meals, how can they concentrate and study. And when students cant do their work properly, they fail, and when they grow up, they will find it hard to find a job. More should be done to help students who are in need of financial help.
