Eric Jensen has something to say about education and low-income children. Jensen outlines his learning and approach in his book, Teaching with Poverty in Mind: What Being Poor Does to Kids' Brains and What Schools Can Do About It.
Jensen really "gets it" when it comes to understanding the very real, day-to-day dynamics assoicated with poverty. Children and families face challenges and difficulties that most of us simply do not understand. Jensen's research and experience provide enlightenment and insight for anyone interested in really understanding the world of the poor. Every urban public school teacher or leader needs to listen to Jensen.
Jensen's understanding leads to hope, not dispair.
He speaks to "changing brains for the better." He outlines "upside potential" for children from poor families.
If you care about public education, you need to spend some time with Eric Jensen.
