Maybe I don’t understand some concepts for teaching after all.

I read D-Ed Reckoning on ambiguity and learned that poverty children don’t learn the concept of color. What? How can they do that?

The example is a card a teacher is holding up with a red ball. She wants the children to find a card with the same color. I was thinking that they would pick any of the cards because the background color is the same. But apparently they don’t know what the colors are.

That’s a little scary. They’re six years old. No wonder poverty kids have a hard time with education if they don’t know what colors are. I’m really having a hard time accepting that is the truth.

I was a poverty kid when I was younger. But my parents taught me color; at least I assume so since I don’t remember not knowing colors.

Very strange.

(Note: What do we call these people? Poverty children? Low socioeconomic status? Poor? There is so much meaning to words, that all the labels are painful.)
