Over the years, a number of my clients have spoken highly of the work of Dr. Ruby Payne who is a leading expert on the mindsets of poverty, middle class and wealth. The reviews I have heard of Dr. Payne’s workshops and seminars have been excellent. Her book A Framework for Understanding Poverty provides the reader with a much better understanding not only of how students living in poverty face challenges but also helps them to understand some positive action steps that can be taken to help these students succeed.
I highly recommend this well-researched and logical book on an important topic that is highly relevant to school safety, climate and culture.
