Responses to the 2013 Annual Meeting Theme
 
Education and Poverty: Theory, Research, Policy and Praxis
Print
01

Education has long been seen as a way out of poverty in the United States and globally, yet educational systems also perpetuate cycles of poverty and wealth. Poverty interacts with education through local, national, and international systems of financial markets and the global knowledge economy. It affects the lives of students, families, and communities across generations. Our goal at the 2013 AERA Annual Meeting is to consider the relationships of education and poverty from multiple perspectives and through diverse methodologies.  We conceive the theme “Education and Poverty” broadly to include the ways that education theory, research, policy, and praxis contribute to alleviating economic, intellectual, and moral poverty. The purpose of this conference is not to require a doctrinaire adherence to one or another viewpoint.  Rather, the intent is to have us come together as an academic community to discuss, debate, and consider the relationships of education and poverty.

To stimulate discussion of the conference theme before and during the 2013 Annual Meeting, we invited colleagues with diverse perspectives on education and poverty to write short responses to the theme. 

We want you to join the discussion: Read the essays, listen to the authors answer questions about their perspectives, and leave your comments.
