The rate of poverty has steadily increased across the nation. Living in poverty affects health, academic growth, social-emotional development and classroom engagement. Many preservice teachers in our program come from suburban environments and have little experience working and interacting with diverse populations. Therefore, using service learning and civic engagement as a framework for understanding poverty as a whole, and students with special needs within that context, will help prepare Inclusive Education preservice teachers to address student needs.
