Author: Yuen, Yuet Mui., Celeste
This article discuss the relationship between poverty and education. Improved schooling can combat intergenerational poverty. In order to break through the chain effect of "social background-education-achievement," schools must minimize any further disadvantages for students who are already socially disadvantaged. Alongside the role the government's education policy plays in tacking poverty, the findings show that teachers also play an important role. This article recommends that teachers pay more attention to raising students' academic self-esteem and to holding appropriate expectations of all students so as to effectively tackle the uneuqal educational results caused by poverty.
