        Poverty Amid Plenty - America's Continuing Shame. If we are one America -- or at least if we want to be one America, united and at social peace -- it is surely time to make the alleviation of poverty our number one priority. Inside the 99 percent, it is surely time .   Introduction While I was browsing through a bookstore some time ago I came across a book that had an eye-catching title: Sacred Cows Make Good Hamburger. I did not buy the book, nor have I ever read it, but the subject was fascinating. Unfortunately, while this may be true I do not see many standing in line to grind that hamburger.

Just as we can pinpoint reasons why some of our children seem doomed to failure, we can also identify concrete solutions that offer all students greater opportunities to succeed in school. These solutions constitute a pedagogy of plenty. A pedagogy of plenty is teaching at its best.   Over the past year, the #weneeddiversebooks campaign has gained a lot of visibility in the world of YA literature. Bloggers and readers have made a specific effort to read more diversely.

        The command to use our resources for the benefit of poor people is given directly in the book of Exodus. For six years you shall sow your land and gather in its yield; but the seventh year you shall let it rest and lie fallow, so that the poor of your people may eat; and what they leave the wild animals may eat. We’ve launched our own ministries with the poor, and made plenty of mistakes. When you’re busy running a ministry, you don’t have the time, resources, and skills to create your own solution. There’s got to be a better way to help people in poverty learn how to steward their money well!
