Understanding the diverse work place

Nearly every workplace has a diverse cultural environment and poverty is one of the many differences among those working in corporate America. This book creates an easy means of minimizing the gap between the many levels incomes within a community.

Should be required reading for all Law Enforcement Officers.

This book links the connection between poverty and the learning system in a clear, consise manner. The "Hidden" rules are fact. The sections dealing with language levels, --verbal and non verbal are on target. It should be required reading for all Law Enforcement Officers. It is plain, factual, and goes at the root cause of failure to learn, failure to plan, function, and communicate. The result, -impulsive behavior that ends one up in the criminal justice system! Should be required reading for all law enforcement personnel Lt. Gary L. Hoffman, Director of Training and Education, Office of the Sheriff of Charlotte County,Florida.

A must reading for educators.

Dr. Payne's book is essential reading for educators. Those who supervise people in the workplace who have roots in poverty would also benefit greatly from reading this book. It will affect the way in which you manage people. Dr. Payne makes all of us accutely aware of our own roots, our own middle class values and mindsets. A Framework for Understanding Poverty should become a part of every school's professional library. It will change the way in which you teach and discipline children from poverty. Our knowledge of children from poverty, and our skills in working with children from poverty must increase. Having worked as a teacher and administrator for 32 years, I have seen the impact of poverty on our schools firsthand. The growth rate for this segment of our population demands that we begin to look seriously at how we as educators interface with children from poverty. As members of a democratic society, we literally cannot afford not to attend to the issues related to poverty. Reading Dr. Payne's book will put you on the right path for your journey.

The best book written on children living in poverty.

A Framework For Understanding Poverty, is the most useful book I have read in the twelve years I have been teaching. Payne gives solid reasons, not excuses, for the attitudes and behaviors of children living in poverty. Unlike some other authors, she does not stop there. Instead, she follows through by giving the reader practical ways to improve his or her dealings with these children who so often fall through the cracks.The book is well organized and enjoyable to read. My principal had the insight to buy a copy for the entire staff, and as a result many formidable discussions have arisen. I would recomend it to anyone in direct contact with children living in poverty.
