The Psychology of Poverty and Impact on Schools
Several interesting articles in this newsletter from Luton’s Child & Educational Psychology Service.
In this edition of our newsletter, we consider some of the psychological aspects of poverty including shame (page 2); the school-family-child relationship and narra-tives about poverty (page 3); the impact of poverty in the classroom both from the perspective of school staff (page 4) psychological research (page 6); and pose the question of whether rewards and consequences unfairly impact young people liv-ing in poverty (page 8). Finally, we briefly review the Council’s vision for trans-forming our town and ending poverty (page 9).
