Paul Thomas on Grit, Slack, and the Effects of Poverty on Learning

Paul Thomas on Grit, Slack, and the Effects of Poverty on Learning

Paul Thomas is an associate professor of education at Furman University and author of numerous books, including Ignoring Poverty in the U.S.: The Corporate Takeover of Public Education. He also hosts the blog "The Becoming Radical: A Place for a Pedagogy of Kindness." They discuss grit, slack, and the effects of poverty on learning. The conversation turns to examine the feasibility of education reform absent a better social safety net. In the final segment, Patrick and Paul consider potential solutions to childhood poverty, including a guaranteed minimum income and wraparound social services.
