Poverty Awareness

Poverty and Trauma-Informed Education

ESSDACK believes that growing up in poverty can significantly affect a child’s behavior and academic performance, impacting their mindset for change and success. A systemic approach for change must involve a broad understanding of the myths and realities of poverty and must also include students, families, and community members in a long term solution.
