This school had 86 % free and reduced lunch but the teachers continue to collaborate new ways to reaching and helping their children succeed and look forward to college! Using red and green cards in class yes i get it or no i need more practice could be used to see who needs more practice in class.The administrator was very involved in helping her staff reach the goals they set out. Quality education can happen in a poverty school and that is awesome to see that your parental income does not need to hold you back from reaching your dreams thanks to this awesome staff!

Subtle but noticed… that this video released the misconception that "poor kids" lack knowledge and information. This concept is the brainchild of individuals who promoted a type of capitalism whereby, in order to maintain imperialism, we must be able to label the haves from the have-nots. Along with this misconception, this kind of capitalism is on the decline. According to Charles Murray, the author of "Coming Apart” and the developer of the Bell Curve, “poor does not equal ignorance," as ignorance or a lack of knowledge can also be observed among the most wealthy. Murray offered that when we talk about classes of individuals, we reflexively resort to stereotypes. Our expectation of students who are raised in poverty areas, are fixed in a thinking mode that instructional adjustments should be made. Maybe the labels should fall off and maybe education then would become an equal opportunity. We should simply teach and when through teaching we observe students not reaching expectations, we then should adjust instruction, accordingly and not because he is poor.
