Framework for Understanding Poverty – and its effects on leadership and learning
Presented by Rebecca and Jim Holland
How is leadership impacted when poverty is present? How are teachers, mentors and leaders accepted in impoverished states? This session will explore the dynamics of poverty and how relationships, hidden rules, and formal versus casual language all impact education, teaching and leadership. We will review findings from Dr. Ruby Payne’s research and discuss how leaders can build relationships.
