Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, January 27, 2013 11:49 PM

This is the "chicken and egg" issue.  Which do we focus on first?

 

If we focus on the academic achievement gaps, how do we "control" for  the opportunity and experience gaps?    If the opportunity and experience gaps exist for most, how can any school or teacher make a major impact?  Housing policy can help there.  

 

Focusing on the achievement gaps without address the core problems means politicians keep creating policies that focus on symptoms (and not the problem).  Teachers are blamed.  Schools are flagged.  Energy goes where it might not matter.  

 

Yes, we need to look at the symptoms, but if you are completely distracted by the symptoms the chasm will grow.  Short sighted problem solving leads to ineffective solutions.

Don't even get me started.......

 

I am reminded of a great quote from an article I read yesterday:  http://www.scoop.it/t/disproportionality-in-schools/p/3995865537/i-used-to-think

 

 

 

I used to think that some kids weren’t cut out for school. They were lazy, unmotivated, and not “academic,” as if being academic was the most important thing in the world. Now I’ve come to realize that it’s the cutout school that’s the problem. Kids love to learn and do it quite naturally. They just might not be buying what I’m selling.

 

The cutout school run mostly by women, is part of the problem.  They aren't buying what we are selling.  

 

 

" The rise of women, however long overdue, does not require the fall of men"

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.

Successful intelligence requires that we know how to put our intellectual best foot forward.  Sometimes this means having just plain common sense, or “street smarts.”  Successful intelligence also involves having “emotional intelligence,” also called "EI," which is being to read people’s feelings- and your own.

Very interesting read regarding the struggles that college grads from working class backgrounds must endure.  

 

"Nowhere do working class lives and cultures clash more than in higher education…For working class people who cross the class divide, there are stories and sacrifices that have precious little voice and find no ear to listen” (p. 150)."

 

"Everyone talks at the same time, kids run and play, and football is on the television. Inside the small kitchen, the women stir, bake, gossip, and laugh."


So much resonates with me.  Folks like us straddle the fence for life.  There is guilt attached to that.  We are protective of our roots.  Still, we "know" a better way.

Kristymay's curator insight, March 29, 2015 2:04 AM

To have any child living in poverty is a crisis, but to have an industrialised nation such as America having 22% of its child population enduring poverty is an outrage. Also, to have the second highest infant mortality rate among industrialised nations is shameful. I chose this article as I plan to start a family in the next five years and I would want to bring my child into a world with the best academic chance they have to become a happy and functioning adult. While there are communities in America, such as the Harlem Children’s Zone that advocate for education reform, the government has to take charge and ownership of this national crisis. The article states that parents as well as schools need to be supported to in order for better educational outcomes. I believe that poverty can sometimes breed poverty in future generations. It is up to organisations and government to educate parents, schools and communities. Stated in this article and addressed by Dr King more than 50 years ago, the government needs to address inequity in schools through reform, but also contributing factors such as healthcare, food and job security. Once all these issues have been addresses, then education reform can be successful.

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

Competencias Digitales

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, February 3, 2013 4:04 PM

From very early in my life, possibly in my elementary school years, but certainly by the time I was in high school, I've felt that the age-based grouping of children for education was ineffective, holding some students back, while forcing others ahead before they were ready. Even without digital learning techniques, I believe that students, all students, benefit from a system that takes each individual's learning styles and needs into account, recognizing mastery (or competency, as it's referred to in this infographic) as the basis for placement in each subject. The advent of digital learning systems provides the means for making such a process easier and more cost-effective than ever before, and I hope that our schools, regardless of whether they are brick & mortar or via the Internet, will continue to explore ways to help every child learn in the way that works best for them.
