In this lecture, Kathleen McCartney, dean of the Graduate School of Education and Gerald S. Lesser Professor in Early Childhood Development, Harvard University considers the following questions: When a child lives in an impoverished environment, is a given level of experience necessary for normal development? Can poverty serve as an indicator of the environmental threshold required to support normal development? Dean McCartney examines evidence from behavior genetics, income change studies and early childhood interventions. She also explores the implications of these issues for educators and policymakers.
