New Chapters on the Brain, Intersectionality, and Parents

Simple, proven strategies that schools can start using today

With a view through an economic lens that has only become sharper and more focused since its initial publication in 1995, Framework’s premise is unchanged: The rules of survival and instability often interfere with time and opportunities to learn. This book and associated training will give you in-depth strategies and understandings to reduce your own frustration and better serve your students and parents.

Nearly 25 years and 1.8 million copies later, innumerable individuals and groups have used Framework to create a groundswell of responses to the challenge of poverty. Educators, social service and healthcare workers, law enforcement and the judiciary, communities, employers, and individuals from all walks of life are engaged in supporting children and adults to build resources, patterns of learning, and behaviours that will help them exit poverty. Expanded edition includes:

  • Best practices teachers can use immediately to improve outcomes
  • Deep dives into the mindsets of generational poverty, middle class, and wealth
  • New case studies, exhaustive references, and an evolving understanding of poverty’s intersections with race, health, immigration, and more
