Higher Ed: How Outside Circumstances Can Impact Learning
In an ideal world, every student comes to class, or to any educational situation, well-prepared and ready to learn. But in reality, all kinds of life circumstances outside the classroom - such as poverty - can influence what happens inside the classroom. In this week's episode of KUT's podcast Higher Ed, KUT's Jennifer Stayton and Southwestern University President Dr. Ed Burger talk about how those factors impact students' experiences.
This week, Ed and Jennifer respond to a listener's personal story and inquiry about the effects of poverty on learning. Click here to hear her question and their discussion. You'll also get the solution to last episode's puzzler about waffles and a family tree.
