Classnotes Podcast (March 12, 2009) As education gaps continue between low-income students and their peers, many school leaders have been looking for effective ways to close the gap. Unfortunately, some buy into myths about children of poverty and their ability to learn that lead to lower expectations inappropriate teaching. In this 50th episode of the Classnotes Podcast, Bradley Scott, Ph.D., and Aurelio Montemayor, M.Ed., discuss these myths, how they fail to recognize the strengths that students bring and how they lead to inequitable and unsuccessful education. Bradley directs the IDRA South Central Collaborative for Equity, and Aurelio directs the IDRA Texas Parent Information and Resource Center.
