Compared to middle-income parents, low-income parents provide their children with less physical and emotional support and weaker language, reasoning, and behavioral preparation for school (Farkas 2000).
When analyzed according to race and ethnicity, achievement disparities negatively impact educational outcomes for poor children and children of color on a consistent basis (McGee 2004).
Keep parents actively involved, and provide them with supplemental information that may help to improve their lives as well as the lives of their children.
The statistics on the number of families and the number of children living in poverty were astounding. In general, children who live in poverty have a hard time succeeding in school. These children have a home environment that offers little interaction at a time that is crucial to the development of language and social skills. They start school with deficits in crucial areas when compared with peers. A majority of the articles showed a direct correlation with poverty and African Americans. States with a large number of African American citizens, infant mortality, births to unmarried women, and other factors, have the highest rates of child poverty.
In order for students who live in poverty to succeed, educators must provide opportunities for learning the fit the learner.
