Concentrated neighborhood poverty and its impact on student academic success is explored in this set of presentations and resources. First, we define poverty at the individual and neighborhood levels. We then unpack concentrated poverty by highlighting who experiences it and where it is located in the United States. We also uncover how concentrated poverty impacts student success and which districts and schools face the biggest challenges. Finally, we illuminate some of the solutions at the school and neighborhood levels.
