Debate rages about how much of what is taught in leadership courses actually transfers to leadership practice. Some have suggested that knowledge transfer is as low as 10%. Other studies show the number closer to 60%.

Addressing Gendered Poverty – The Upcoming Commission on the Status of Women

Of the 1.3 billion people living in poverty around the world, 70% are women


Women do about 66% of the world’s work in return for less than 5% of its income


In the least developed countries nearly twice as many women over age 15 are illiterate compared to men


Two-thirds of children denied primary education are girls, and 75% of the world’s 876 million illiterate adults are women


Women work two-thirds of the world’s working hours, produce half of the world’s food, and yet earn only 10% of the world’s income and own less than 1% of the world’s property

We Mustn't Let Poverty Get in the Way of Learning

We Mustn't Let Poverty Get in the Way of Learning | Poverty Assignement_(Prassant) | Scoop.it

1. This post is part of a series on childhood poverty in the United States in partnership with Save the Children and Julianne Moore.


2. One in four children live in poverty.

    Living in poverty affects education.


3. Carolyn S. Miles believes people should try to help families in poverty, because childrens' edudcation suffers.


4. Carolyn says: "If we want to break the cycle of poverty we need to ensure that our children excell academically."


6. I learned that the columnist is very determined to change the lives of kids.


7. This article was written for educated individuals.


8. The writer does offer enough evidence to agree with her, if we help kids deal with poverty and focus them on education they can pull themselves out of poverty.


Carolyn S. Miles relies heavily on, and opens up the article using pathos, relaying the story a principal told her of a teacher who went to go buy a young boy a pair of shoes. The young boy in question only had one pair of shoes and they were too large for him, so large in fact he "had to poke holes in the front so his toes would not be crushed." Since winter was coming the teacher went out and bought him a pair of shoes because she did not want the boy to have no protection from the frost of winter. She also uses logos when she puts forth a solution to bring kids out of poverty, by setting high academical standards for them and having them make good careers, there by breaking the cycle of poverty.

Living in poverty affects education as you might not be able to ask help from your tuition teachers or even on the net. Everyone should play a part in helping children who are suffering from poverty to get education. The principal in the story is one person whom I admire who helps break the cycle of poverty and even sets goals for the child.

i believe that kelvins insight on this issue is correct and i totally agree on the fact that the government should work hand in hand with the poor families to help them to get a education for example the government can help to fund the childrens education but i also believe that it is entirely up to the children on whether they want to excel academically or not hence it is not advisable for the families to entirely depend on the government forever for their childrens education

i believe that kelvin's insight is correct that government and the school should work hand in hand to support and ensure that the children will not end up in the poverty cycle.
