Boys in Poverty: A Framework for Understanding Dropout
Boys in Poverty: A Framework for Understanding Dropout
Boys in Poverty examines the relationship between poverty and dropout among males by examining a wide range of risk factors, including the absence of role models; the trauma of violence and abuse; peer pressures; issues of belonging and not belonging; culturally driven expectations that boys should work rather than finish school, and cognitive and developmental issues that affect boys learning. In addition, the authors look at community and school system factors, such as poor teachers, unfair or punitive discipline policies, and the absence of differentiated instruction. The book structures these issues into four strands, or categories, of development physical, emotional, cognitive, and social, examining how each is exacerbated by poverty. Additional chapters explore the special problems of sensitive, gay, gifted, and ADHD boys and issues of post-adolescent males beyond high school age. Within each of these areas of development, the authors offer concrete suggestions for keeping boys engaged with school and the learning process.

Two "homeless" women stop to chat on a busy street near the center of the city China’s poverty statistics are among the most ’massaged’ of all official statistics. Based on the Chinese government’s measure, there are more people living in poverty in the United States (36.5 million) than in China (23.6 million). This of course is absurd. The explanation for this is that China’s official poverty threshold is so low: 683 yuan (64 euros) – a year! This definition only takes account of food and clothing, ignoring hugely expensive items like medical services, education and housing. If the World Bank’s normal definition of ”absolute poverty” – less than one US dollar a day. There are over 200 million people living below $1:00 U.S. per day in China. One statistic from the Chinese media that is unlikely to capture the same global interest as the billionaire rankings is the existence of 1 million homeless children in China’s cities, described as ”waifs and strays” in China Daily on 10 October 2007, This Dickensian classification does not hide the simple fact that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer - The gap between the rich and poor is widening Rapid economic change that China has undergone has left many people unable to cope, and you see large dislocations both in the urban and in the rural areas. In China, the ‘mong liu’ (‘blindly migrating people’) are closest to our concept of homeless people. Another term, ‘nong min gong’, refers specifically to peasants who come to the city to work. Both terms refer to a rural-to-urban migration without government approval. Initially, the migrants have nowhere to live and, therefore, some spend their nights sleeping in railway stations, harbours, and empty buildings. Because they come to the city without registering, they are not counted in the national census.
