CEU Course Description
The achievement gap between lower and higher socioeconomic classes is only widening. Due to the disparities caused by the cycle of poverty, legions of American children enter school each year with outsized struggles that make it very difficult for them to achieve at levels comparable to their higher-income peers. In some cases, the trauma and stress caused by childhood poverty may even cause physiological and psychological effects on poor students that can be with them their entire lives. In this course, we’ll look at the state of poverty in America, the effects that childhood poverty can have on young students, and some positive steps that teachers and schools can take to make sure that they are best supporting their students, particularly those of a lower socioeconomic status.
