What The District Can Do To Better Support Low-Income Students

Poverty makes it hard for children to succeed in school. Low-income children are more likely than others to show up to school hungry, exposed to violence, stressed by family instability, or faced with severe health problems. 

That’s why efforts to close the still-large achievement gap in DC have to go beyond improving classroom instruction to also address the challenges that low-income children bring to school every day.

Reed is Deputy Director and Bhat is an education policy analyst at the DC Fiscal Policy Institute (www.dcfpi.org), which conducts research on tax and budget issues that affect low- and moderate-income DC residents.
