Hamish Brewer: Poverty is Not a Learning Disability

Not one to shrink from a challenge, plenary speaker Hamish Brewer sought to become Principal of one of the toughest schools in Virginia because he says “I haven’t met a kid that can’t learn and poverty is not a learning disability.”

Hamish Brewer is an author and speaker and is known as the “Relentless, Tattooed Skateboarding Principal & Positive Disruptor.” He will open the At-Risk Students Conference in San Antonio in November.
