Hi Jackie,
 
My quadrant supervisor just suggested a book titled "A Framework for
Understanding Poverty" by Ruby Payne.
 
I'm running to the local library (or to Amazon) to buy it. From what I
understand there are school districts that have an entire curricula based on
Payne philosophies (and from what I've heard, they're pretty positive and
significant).
 
Best of luck!
Rozx
 
PS. If you do a google search on "Ruby Payne" you can find oodles of sites
that will give you an overview of who she is and what her book is about.
