Abstract

本文探討貧窮與教育的關係,指出改善學校教育可以消減跨代貧窮。要打破「出身、教育及成就」的連鎖效應,就必須消減學校對貧窮學生所造成的負面影響。除政府的扶貧教育政策外,訪談資料顯示,老師也是一個非常重要的因素。本文建議老師注重提升學生的學業自尊感,對所有學生都應寄以合理的期望,才能積極地消減因貧窮而引致的教育成效不均問題。
This article discusses the relationship between poverty and education. Improved schooling can combat intergenerational poverty. In order to break through the chain effect of "social background—education achievement," schools must minimize any further disadvantages for students who are already socially disadvantaged. Alongside the role the government's education policy plays in tackling poverty, the findings show that teachers also play an important role. This article recommends that teachers pay more attention to raising students' academic self-esteem and to holding appropriate expectations of all students so as to effectively tackle the unequal educational results caused by poverty.
