An Article to Challenge Your beliefs About Kids In Poverty
There is no shame worse than poor teeth in a rich world
I am going to tell you upfront that this article will take you some time to read...maybe upwards of 20 minutes. We know the importance of equity in the world today. We have to work diligently to assure that "equity" does not become a stereotype for a certain class, race, or geographic region. Read this article through the lens of equity and ask yourself what you can do in your school tomorrow to help with the problem sketched out in the article.
The author of the article is Sarah Smarsh. She is a guiding light for me in how she frames the challenges that rural citizens face in the United States today.
