Poverty and Trauma-Informed Education
Brain research is telling us that students growing up in poverty or experiencing trauma will 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 trauma. This approach must include students, families, and community members in a long term solution.
We’re committed to finding ways to be part of that solution.
