Full of generalizations yes Entirely wrong no The role of language and story Hidden rules among classes Characteristics of Generational Poverty are some of the better chapters There ARE rules of behavior and language in the middle class and other classes and trying to function in a middle class atmosphere reuires knowledge of these rules This is not a judgment statement just statement of fact just as knowledge of French would be a reuirement for success in France The difference is that knowledge of middle class rules is generally valued whereas the knowledge of those in poverty is dismissed and devalued I would say that a serious student of class and issues related to poverty in the US would want to include this book in their reading but would not want to rely on it for the reasons that other reviewers have stated It is predominantly anecdotal and short on hard data Nonetheless it is a decent starting point for new teachers or social workers who may not have much exposure to the realities of low income urban areas and their students lives at home

A Framework for Understanding Poverty

People in poverty face challenges virtually unknown to those in middle class or wealth challenges from both obvious and hidden sources The reality of being poor brings out a survival mentality and turns attention away from opportunities taken for granted by everyone else If you work with people from poverty some understanding of how different. Payne s book is a perfect example of what is wrong with the conservative approach to education In this book sold to districts all over the country Payne peddles soft racism and discredited social theory based on her anecdotal observations rather than real researchIt s a pretty appealing formula rather than address the root causes of poverty in this country or community demonize the poor through condescension and disapproval rather than outright hostility I had the misfortune of going to a professional development opportunity presented by one of Payne s lackeys She chose exactly this approach regaling our teachers with increasingly improbable stories about the sexual and economic often linked immorality of the poor ostensibly to illustrate the need for structured lesson plans to suit the poor The poor in Payne s work are spiritually deficient and in desperate need of the values of the middle classThis argument is troubling on a number of levels but most importantly for how it essentializes the experience of poverty For those who would fix education by fixing the value structure of the poor poverty is not only inevitably marked by experience with substance abuse laziness crime and sexual abuse they are inherent characteristics Valorizing the middle class as emblematic of virtue these critics ignore a country that has a class independent problem with morality To argue in the country with the greatest wealth and greatest debt per person in the world that the poor lack the structure to save money is an unbelievably simplistic and empirically incorrect argument

    This is a controversial book to say the least featuring some very broad generalizations about poverty that lend themselves to stereotypes that are unhelpful and de politicizing The unexamined will control us and this book is about unexamined assumptions and the hidden social rules of each class that keep individuals pigeonholed and divided It is ironic then that the author is accused by some of doing the pigeo
