Developed through many years of experience, this book makes a comprehensive analysis of the problem of disadvantaged children and offers constructive suggestions for its solution. For the author, "disadvantage" includes not only the impoverished, the racial or ethnic minorities, and the educationally deprived, but also a much broader interpretation--any child for whom the established educational process and curriculum is outdated, inadequate, or irrelevant.
