Educators and education policymakers know that, in contrast to their more advantaged peers, students in high-poverty neighborhoods often face formidable barriers to academic success, including housing insecurity, parental unemployment, and encounters with violent crime. How can schools both nurture students’ intellectual progress and also mediate the substantial non-school stressors that often interfere with learning? Moreover, what do we know about the variety of approaches – from community schools to Integrated Student Support models – and how they address students’ academic, emotional, and physical needs? There is general support for such an approach in state legislatures and amongst educators and clinicians, and a growing body of empirical research to help inform the way forward.

Please join the Institute to discuss the research, the challenges, and the necessity, of a holistic approach to education in high-poverty contexts.
