Poverty Shapes Education


74% of the adultchildrenof high school dropouts are low income.

16% of the adult children of parents with some college are low income.


Being poor far outweighs

race/ethnicity, family structure

and other factors as causes of

cognitive disadvantage.

Mass. Insight Education & Research Institute


School poverty level more strongly

related to achievement than individual

family poverty

  • Less Engaged

  • Put force less effort

  • Have lower aspirations


High Poverty Schools…the perfect storm

  • Poverty undercuts children’s readiness to learn

  • The influence of the neighborhoods

  • The schools themselves are dysfunctional

  • Teacher inequality / teacher turnover


One in eight Ohio teachers

in high-poverty elementary schools

is not highly qualified, compared with

one in fifty in low-minority schools.


Failing, high-poverty schools need much

more than incremental change. They need

fundamental rethinking on all the ways

they serve their high-needs students.

Mass. Insight Education & Research Institute


Whyhas so little fundamental change

occurred in failing schools?

  • Lack of leverage

  • Lack of capacity

  • Lack of exemplars

  • Lack of public will


marginal change = marginal results
