A Framework for Understanding Poverty was Dr. Ruby Payne's first book and the first book RFT Publishing Co. (now aha! Process, Inc.) published. It is fitting that the book and the company's history are intertwined. The central goal of the company is educating people about the differences that separate economic classes and then teaching them skills to bridge those gulfs. Framework is the method that delivers that message. Ruby's thesis for Framework is simple. Individuals accustomed to personal poverty think and act differently from people in the middle and upper economic classes. Most teachers today come from middle-class backgrounds. Economic class differences, in an educational setting, often make both teaching and learning challenging. Too often, teachers don't understand why a student from poverty is chronically acting out or is not grasping a concept even after repeated explanations. At the same time, the student doesn't understand what he/she is expected to produce and why. Ruby discusses at length the social cues or "hidden rules" that govern how we think and interact in society - and the significance of those rules in a classroom. Framework also illuminates differences between generational poverty and situational poverty. Ruby explains the "voices" that all of us use to project ourselves to the outside world and how poverty can affect those voices. Through the use of realistic teaching scenarios, Ruby focuses attention on sources of support, or resources, which might or might not be present in a student's life. Resources are important assets - things like mental stability, emotional support, and physical health - and the more resources students have in their lives, the better able they'll be to achieve their goals. Framework is a teacher's book. It draws on years of experience in multiple school systems, along with a wide range of academic positions. In this groundbreaking work Ruby Payne matter-of-factly presents the issues central to teaching students from poverty, then takes a pivotal next step by offering proven tools educators can use immediately to improve the quality of instruction in their classrooms.… (més)

Reading again to get prepped for introducing to my class in the fall. It is an important book when read with other books focusing on children and families. ( )

A succinct, readable coverage of the hidden rules of poverty and how educators can recognize these rules and work with people of poverty so that kids can garner the resources needed to better oneself. This can also help people understand the hidden rules of the middle class and wealthy. Very interesting points made that I never realized. ( )

I think this should be a must-read for educators, and it looks like my school district has embraced all of the tips that have been suggested: the after-school homework period built into the day, the social skills workshops, the programs offered by the guidance department, the organization remediation, etc.

This will affect my teaching immediately, as so many of the pitfalls I've encountered have been explained here--the way I handled certain behavior problems and why they weren't effective, when calling home will be effective and when it won't, etc.

The most unexpected things I learned from reading this has been figuring out some people close to me in my life. The book has been so eye-opening! It also explains why I, middle-classed, couldn't be in a room with people of generational wealth for 1 minute without seeming crude, base, or "low-class." When Payne explained the "rules of poverty" in terms that I could understand such as how the "rules of middle class" differ from those of the "upper class", it all made perfect sense. So much of this information was just dead-on. I'm seeing that many people find this to be too stereotypical, but I couldn't care less. It's made me take a much deeper look into my own ideas and misconceptions and has given me the resources to have an even deeper respect for people in poverty. (I tended to believe, deep down, that it's their own fault they "choose" to reject the government's attempts at giving them an education.) This is probably the most important book I've read in a few years, as its impact will reach into both my professional and personal life. ( )

The frustration many teachers have with most struggling students is well explained in this book. The "achievement gap" is broken down into a fundamental disconnect between the value systems and world views of the economically disadvantaged in the system of public education.
If, as a teacher, you have been baffled by the seemingly bizarre choices that these students and their families make again and again and again, this book is for you.
Also, what I liked most about this book is that it presents numerous concrete solutions that the classroom teacher and school administrators can easily implement. ( )

A concise and helpful introduction to the variation in resources (economic, emotional, physical, mental, etc.), values (what is considered ultimately important), and hidden rules of generational poverty, middle-class, and wealthy. ( )
