John Farrier's Comments

Ruby Payne writes a lot of useful information about how decisions are made by different social classes. I remember she walked me (and a bunch of other people in a lecture hall) through a mental exercise that showed how middle class people might exhibit the same tendencies under the right circumstances.

But as much as it can be useful to understand how people in poverty often make bad decisions, the emphasis should always be on helping them make good decisions.

Oh, is that what it meant? I saw mentions of it in my Twitter feed (where I follow Zach Weinersmith), but I didn't understand what they were talking about.
