Back to Disrupting Poverty in the Elementary School Classroom (DVD)
Drawing upon their years studying high-poverty, high-performing schools, William Parrett and Kathleen Budge identify the common practices and structures that effective schools put into action as well as the unproductive processes these schools eliminate. This data forms the basis of their framework for action to help get all students learning to high standards. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach; you’ll discover the critical components that set these institutions apart from their struggling peers. In Disrupting Poverty in the Elementary School, you’ll visit schools where district leaders, school leaders, and teachers have found great success by improving practices, or eliminating what’s not working, in the key areas of:
- Building leadership capacity.
- Fostering a healthy, safe, and supporting learning environment.
- Focusing on student, professional, and system learning.
Learn what these schools do to help students succeed and how your school can adopt the same practices to disrupt the cycle of poverty and lift students to achievement.
