What do students who live in poverty really need from their teachers?

09-10-2018
Here is an interview with Linda Cliatt-Wayman, who led one of the most dangerous high schools in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (United States). She argues that what students who live in poverty really need from their teachers is a lot of love and unimaginably high expectations.  In one year, she turned around a high-danger Philadelphia school, getting it off that list for the first time in many years and significantly improving achievement.  She now runs a nonprofit that helps the city’s poorest students make it through high school.  This interview connects with her book Lead Fearlessly, Love Hard: Finding Your Purpose and Putting It to Work.
