Pollock, Katina; Lopez, Ann; Joshee, Reva
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v16 n2 p11-19 Jun 2013
This case disrupts some of the prevalent myths about families from low-income and poor households held by educators. Recognizing the inherent tensions, this case demonstrates the importance of creating equitable and inclusive learning environments. We presented some of the challenges faced by Marcus, a progressive principal, as he attempts to challenge the myths about low-income and poor families held by his teaching staff to create a positive and inclusive learning environment where all students can learn.
