New Conceptions of Student Neediness and Directions for Better Responses.
Lloyd, Doug; Turale, Sue
This paper is about the issues relating to students lived experiences and responses associated with poverty. The authors argue that poverty is a limited and limiting concept. Instead, they focus on developing an understanding of the nature of needy students lived experiences, the impact of these on their well being and on success in several domains, and the strategies students may employ in coping with and overcoming need-related problems. This will be particularly useful for post-compulsory secondary students and those in further and higher education. The paper builds a theoretical analysis of stress and coping. It shows how a longitudinal study of the nature of needy students problems and experiences, the responses that are employed in seeking to manage these problems, and the outcomes that result over time will yield important new understandings for students, schools, universities, and policy makers. The framework allows an analysis of the influence of "place" (rural, regional, or urban) to identify context-specific differences in need, problems arising from need, coping strategies, and longer-term outcomes.
