Response to a TFA Hopeful and Ruby Payne Fan
Here's a scary estimation. About 40% of the people who email me in response to my work on poverty and education are trying to convince me or themselves that "the culture of poverty" is real.  Here's an insight. The culture of poverty is not real. It was int...
