poverty's effect on learning redux...,

aera-l | In response to my post "Barriers to Better K-12 Math Education: Poverty and the Inadequate Undergraduate Education of Prospective K-12 Teachers [Hake (2013)] at Ed Wall (2013b), in his Math-Learn post at made 2 points: (1) My statement that Wall implied that the dumbing down of elementary school mathematics in the U.S. is due to Math Education Researcher's preoccupation with the secondary years is "more than a little un-thoughtful." (2) His post "Re: Do We Learn All the Math We Need For Ordinary Life Before 5th Grade?" [Wall (2013a)] at had more to do with (a) his agreement with David Hawkins - see signature quote - which Wall assumes I have refuted, and (b) people such as myself who " 'imply' that children are less than capable because of their socioeconomic status." [Non-subscribers to Math-Learn can access Wall's post by taking a minute to "Join this List" at the Math-Learn archives.]

Here I refute Wall's 2 points with emphasis on Wall's incorrect point 2b: "people such as myself 'imply' that children are less than capable because of their socioeconomic status." On the contrary, I implied that children *in poverty* are less capable of *academic achievement* than children not in poverty.

I think that children in poverty are probably just as *inherently* capable as children not in poverty, but societal and home factors conspire against their academic achievement. For example many of them: (a) are subjected to poor teaching, (b) attend dilapidated schools with high student and teacher turnover, (c) have academically uninvolved parents, (d) partake of few out-of-school enrichment activities, (e) have limited access to books, (f) receive inadequate nutrition, (g) live in slums, (h) come from broken families, (i) are threatened by gang violence, (j) have few academic role models, and (k) suffer from environmental hazards such as lead poisoning.

My Good Man CNu:


Is there any expectation within your reasoning that the Black community should have stronger evidence of STRUCTURAL ADJUSTMENT (upward) - in line with the retirement (regulation) of systematic racism and the take over of the "Human Resource Development Institutions" by favorable people in power?



We can't prevent the tidal changes in the economy.

We SHOULD expect - that IF the claims of "Racism" are true - that progressive public policy should have neutralized this forces unchecked access to attack Black people.


The issue is NOT "If there is or is not any racism" - in the hearts of the long time enemies of Black people.
The ONLY issue that we need talk about today - FOR THOSE WHO USE THIS TALKING POINT - is - since there is abundant judicial recourse for anyone suffering a racial attack that nullifies their economic or academic opportunity - WHY are there not more wholesale gains - particularly among "The Least Of These" - when they have favorable people in power?


I suspect that the REVERSE is the case.

The Embedded Confidence Men (the political opportunists) are USING "The Least Of These" - harvesting their grievances - and yet making sure that the local "governance culture" never begins a wave of protests against the present establishment who occupy seats of power that used to be the keystone of oppression. INSTEAD they are now making a political run at the national level.


And you say "What?" sir?

um...., I'd beg to differ about that "abundant judicial recourse" available to anyone bit....,

And you say "What?" sir?


I'd say that a. through k. are absolutely true characterizations and that the Dickensian conditions just around that signpost up ahead are not only going to overwhelm the folks about whom a. through k. are currently true, but that they will encompass and egregiously encumber folks who are actively making best efforts to overcome and escape the clutches of those conditions, as well.
