Poverty is not learned; therefore, it cannot be ‘unlearned’

“Condescend, Condescend, Condescend. Instructors should learn at least one good phrase like this one: ‘It’s that kind of thinking that got you where you are today.’ Another advantage of the widely popular life skills strategy is that it produces those tidy little units called ‘outcomes’ that government and charitable funding sources have begun to require of late. Though the days of no accountability are over and we do mourn them, we must keep up with the times as well and find ways to produce outcomes without really impacting the problem at hand.”
