code. image of students in africa. 2014. Foreign affairs,trade and development canada, africa. www.codecan.org. Web. 28 Mar. 2014.

 

This is an image of students in Africa. It provides an inside look t the issue of poverty in Africa. It shows a teacher with students in the classroom setting. The students are sitting on the floor with books. There are no desk for the students to sit at. It even shows one of the students without shoes on. This image provides proof that poverty is also an issue outside of the united states. This image will help with my paper because it shows that even when poverty is present  the need of an education is still important. The image shows these students in the worst of conditions yet still attempting to learn.

Lashundrea Oliver's insight:

"National Center for Biotechnology Information." National Center for Biotechnology Information. U.S. National Library of Medicine, n.d. Web. 29 Mar. 2014. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/.

 

This webite talks about the impact of poverty on educational outcomes for children. It states that educational outcomes are one of the key areas influenced by family incomes. It says children from low-income families often start school already behing their peers who come from more affluent families. The website states pediatricians and family doctors have many opportunities to influence readiness for school and educational success in primary care settings. Some of the reasons stated that poverty decreases a child's readiness for school are through health, home life, schooling, and neighborhoods. The six poverty related factors mentioned are incidence of poverty, the depth of poverty, the duration of poverty, the timing of poverty, community characteristics, school characteristics, and the impact poverty has on the child's social network. The article states children from low-income families often do not receive the stimulation and do not learn the social skills requird to prepare them for school. Typical problems are frequent changes of primary caregivers, lack of supervision and poor role modelling. The parents of these children often lack support. This website's article will help with my paper because it has a lot of important and detailed information related to my topic. It also provides information that poverty is an issue outside the united states as well.

Teaching Ahead: A Roundtable - Serving Low-Income Students Archives - Education Week Teacher

Lashundrea Oliver's insight:

Arcos, Silvestre . "serving low-income students." blogs.edweek.org. N.p., n.d. Web. 28 Mar. 2014. http://blogs.edweek.org/.

 

This blog is very short and to the point. It talks about how family income correlates with academic achievment. It states there is a major rift between those who think poverty is an underlying factor for lagging achievement and those who think it is in-school factors. One in-school factor mentioned was teacher quality. The blog posed this challenge to five teachers. This blog will help with my paper because it suggest that poverty may not be the only factor for lagging achievement for low-income students.

Lashundrea Oliver's insight:

Dcps Seeks to Remove Barriers to College for Low-Income Students.  WAMU. 88.5, Washington DC. 22 Mar. 2013. Web. Transcript.

 

This transcript is about the barriers that sometimes keep low-incoe students form going to college. The transcript consist of a radio interview from WAMU 88.5. They interviewed people from the D.C. public school system as well as President Barack Obama. The president says only 30 percent of low-income students enroll in college right after high school, and by their mid- 20s only 9 percent earn a bachelors degree. They also discuss what the D.C. public schools are doing to better prepare low-income students. They're getting the students started a lot earlier. They're encouraging teachers to talk to the sudents early o about college. They're also trying to get more of their students to take AP exams. They're going as far as to pay for the exams because low-income and children of color were not given the opportunity to do so before. They believe if students are academically ready, chances are they will graduate from college in four years. This transcript is a great source for my paper because it directly relates to my topic of how poverty effects students.
