A just released national study,The Opportunity Atlas: Mapping the Childhood Roots of Social Mobility, https://www.census.gov/ces/pdf/opportunity_atlas_paper.pdf , says that the most important economic and social indicators that will predict whether or not a child rises out of poverty as an adult are.........
- Individual determination and grit?
- Family support?
- Family income?
- Quality of chools?
- Level or parent(s) education?
- Being raised in a two-parent family?
- Something else?
Before you read this New York Times news article, or the study itself, What do you think are the most important indicators?
Once you have read the article or the study itself, what do you think the implications might be for our field? What are we doing that might help children raised in poor families? What (else) should we be doing?
