Educating the Other America by Susan Neuman

Book Description

Breaking the cycle of poverty by improving education and literacy: that's the ultimate goal of "Educating the Other America". This trailblazing book from top experts brings together 30 of the biggest names in education to tackle the toughest challenges faced by the nearly 1 in 5 children who live below the poverty line - and offer fresh, cutting-edge ideas for closing the achievement gap.Readers will start with an in-depth, research-based understanding of children who fail to read not because of cognitive impairment, but because of the complex effects of poverty. They'll explore the dramatic impact of poverty on children's literacy, school achievement, social success, physical health, and future economic well-being. Then readers will discover the practical benefits of the latest research and innovations in teaching and classroom design.
