Education: Learning to Rise above Poverty 20
classrooms can be the much needed source of information for the child who does not receive modeling elsewhere. We must ask ourselves, “What is a child? To see a child is to see possibility, someone in the process of becoming” (Manen, 2006, p.1). Teachers can influence this process of becoming and make a difference in the lives of students, especially those who live in poverty and have decreased opportunities. Education is the answer.
