Children's Views of Poverty: A Review of Research and Implications for Teaching.
Chafel, Judith A.
Educational Forum, v61 n4 p360-71 Sum 1997
This review of 50 years of research identifies a small body of literature on children's views of poverty. It describes awareness of socioeconomic status, class-related attitudes, children's explanations for and judgments of inequality, and ideas about social mobility and change. Ways for teachers to address these attitudes in the classroom are presented. (SK)
