Educating Students in Poverty

With nearly 15 million children in the United States living in poverty, educators must be armed with the tools to address the needs of this increasingly large student population. Christel House Schools discusses what it's like to work with students who struggle with food insecurity, homelessness, childhood trauma, and other hardships- and how educators can foster a safe educational environment despite these challenges. As part of a global network of schools, Christel House works almost exclusively with students from low income families both inside and outside of the US. Working with students in poverty invariably lends itself to additional challenges, but with the skills to support these students comes an even greater opportunity to have a lifelong impact on the trajectory of a child and their success.
