How Do Poverty, Obesity & Lifespan Influence Equity? Geoffrey Canada

Focusing on academic success and college readiness might be “putting the cart before the horse” when planning for positive outcomes for students raised in poverty, says plenary speaker Dr. Geoffrey Canada. The burden of poverty can extend far beyond academic outcomes.
Watch Geoffrey Canada urge educators to consider the long-term effects of poverty on a student’s overall odds for survival.

Best-selling author and pioneering children’s advocate, Geoffrey Canada will present a plenary session entitled Leveling the Playing Field, Helping Children to Succeed at the At-Risk Students Conference in Las Vegas in July.
