Students living in poverty have needs that are not being addressed in traditional classrooms. Students from "generational poverty" process information differently (Payne 1996). Information is processed based on their living conditions and upbringing. Differentiating instruction using Howard Gardener's Multiple Intelligence theory transcends the rules that govern generational poverty and provide students with the tools necessary to succeed in the classroom. F.E. Gouws, education teacher at the University of South Africa, has employed a new outcome based education (OBE) program which implements Howard Gardener's theory of multiple intelligences to solve some of the education problems of disadvantaged youth.
