This makes me realize how important it is that all children have access to preschool, field trips and after school programs.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 28, 4:32 PM

Our students of poverty enter school behind and by the time they are in middle school, the achievement gap has widened.  Often the answer is to remove the struggling students from electives and place them in remediation courses for math or reading, robbing them of the rich contribution arts makes to the lives of middle and upper class children. Innovation must guide our efforts to close the gap, providing not just remediation but enrichment to our children of poverty.
