 Individual and Structural Attributions for Poverty and Persistence in
Family Literacy Programs: The Resurgence of the Culture of
by Esther Prins & Kai A. Schafft
 This article uses interview data to analyze how family literacy
practitioners articulate individual versus structural explanations of
poverty and adult persistence in family literacy programs. Contrasting
practitioner explanations with the views and experiences of adult learners,
we argue that individualistic explanations and the "culture of poverty"
framework continue to shape professional discourse within family literacy.

 Our Ailing Economy and the Education
by Denise Gelberg
Policy makers and business leaders often point to our K-16 education system
as the cause of our economic ills. The oft-heard refrain is that a reformed
system of education will lead America into economic health during this age
of global economic competition. The author questions this great faith in the
transformative power of education given the realities facing youngsters
today. Growing income inequality, unaffordable higher education, and paltry
growth in jobs that pay a living wage conspire to rob education of its
promise for too many of today's children.
