In his book Teaching with Poverty in Mind: What Being Poor Does to Kids' Brains and What Schools Can Do About It, veteran educator Eric Jensen takes an unflinching look on poverty and how it hurts children, families, and communities across the United States. He demonstrates how schools can improve the academic achievement and life readiness of economically disadvantaged students. Jensen argues that despite the detrimental changes to the brain causes by chronic exposure to poverty, the brain’s ability to adapt means that poor children can also experience emotional, social, and academic success under the positive effects of rich and balanced learning environments and caring relationships.
