After years of government and faith-based programs to give people a hand up, there is one man who may have found a “cure” for poverty. From Harvard to Harlem, Geoffrey Canada has been moved to correct a century-old problem, working in two charter schools, for more than 20 years. “His main goal has been to turn children of tough inner-city neighborhoods into college-bound citizens.”
Ending the cycle of poverty, it turns out, begins with parenting skills, because a child’s mind begins developing even in the womb, and the words they hear when young, make all the difference.
