Best Practice: *5 - Why Resources Matter

Poverty, defined as the absence of needed resources, can have both short- and long-term effects on health, development and success in life. Key resources needed for success may be financial, spiritual, cognitive, physical, emotional, and social. Students who live with limited resources may need unique supports in order to reveal often-hidden potential. Educators who understand the potential impacts and are ready with specific strategies will be better able to help every student achieve at high levels.
