Poor Students

This morning I saw online an article about how the rich and the poor have different opinions about the causes of poverty. Basically, rich people tended to think that poor people don't work hard enough; poor people thought poverty was a result of bad luck.

Change a few key words, and you're talking about my classroom. I think that my failing students aren't trying hard enough. They think they're failing because they're bad at math.
