Description

In classrooms where students are often without jackets in the middle of winter, absent from school for long periods of time and have little home support or encouragement, it's no small wonder kids are scoring low on standard tests. The Oklahoman reported on a third grade classroom at Mark Twain Elementary and confirmed the link between poverty and low test scores. Using a linear regression model, it found that reading scorses dropped 1.4 points for each 10 percentage poin increase in poverty.
