The students of Pittman Elementary look like any other students. They attend class. They eat lunch. They play at recess. Yet, while these students look like other kids across town, the kids at Pittman know something the others don't. They're poor. So poor, in fact, that they fret over buying a five dollar book at the fair for fear that their parents won't have enough money for food. The teachers at Pittman know something as well: they are no longer a Title One school, not because the poverty rate decreased but because funding dried up. Worse, the evaporated funds took with it the literacy coach and speech specialist. And so, the poor, in essence, became poorer. But as stated, the students at Pittman - and the teachers as well, for that matter - look like any other students. For despite their hardship they do not believe that success must submit to budgetary recommendations or that unequal resources mean unequal ability. No, they believe they can still achieve. The question is, do you?
