Abstract:

The rationale advanced by this book is based on the theory that children from disadvantaged homes have intellectual capacities far greater than commonly believed. New developments in behavioral science indicate that schools can--if allowed the opportunity--counteract the effects of cultural deprivation. The approaches suggested in this book are guidelines to the formulation of a program, samples of the types of methods important to such programs, a new way of thinking, a new set of routines. To reverse the effects of deprivation on our youth, the concepts of traditional educational programs for the disadvantaged also require reversal.
