The Voice: Ruby Payne

Posted By: Roxy Mc Guire on August 7, 2009
 
Listening to Ruby Payne defend her book and its ideas in response to criticism she has received, I am not convinced. Criticisms were glossed over and (while I hate to be petty) Dr Payne referred to e g g scans undertaken on children's brains. Living in Australia, I haven't heard of e g g brain scans.... but did want to clarify that Aborigines are not the only Australians living in poverty. I also have to admit to being amazed by the 50-70 (?) people from one neighbourhood being the source of this theoretical framework.
