Some Key Points To Remember Poverty is relative. Poverty occurs in all races and all countries. Economic class is a continuous line, not a clear-cut distinction… individuals can move along the continuum. Generational and situational poverty are not synonymous. There are patterns in poverty and all patterns have exceptions. Individuals bring the hidden rules of class in which they were raised to the school setting. Schools and businesses operate from the middle class perspective and these rules are not specifically taught. It is necessary for teachers to understand hidden rules and to teach the rules that will help students become successful in school and the work force. Teachers must provide support and expectations. To move from one class to another requires that individuals give up relationships for achievement.
