HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

Research suggests that hope is one of the most promising responses to the conditions of urban inequality. Fostering hope might be key to effective teaching in urban schools.

False hope is pervasive in many urban schools, but fails to meet young people’s needs. In order to provide youth with truly hopeful prospects for the future, educators should draw on the three educational practices that constitute critical hope, outlined in this factsheet.

Developed from “Note to Educators: Hope Required When Growing Roses in Concrete” by Jeffrey M. R. Duncan-Andrade, in Harvard Educational Review, Vol. 79, No. 2 (2009). Access the complete article online.
