IS COMPENSATORY EDUCATION ONLY PALLIATIVE.
ELAM, STANLEY M.
THIS REBUTTAL TO AN ARTICLE ARGUING THAT COMPENSATORY EDUCATION TREATS ONLY THE RESULTS AND NOT THE CAUSES OF DISADVANTAGEMENT MAINTAINS THAT THE SCHOOL PROGRAMS NEVERTHELESS ARE INSTRUMENTAL IN IMPROVING PROBLEMATIC SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CONDITIONS. IT POINTS OUT THAT ALTHOUGH AN UNHEALTHY NATIONAL ECONOMY CAN CAUSE MUCH INDIVIDUAL POVERTY AND MISERY, NATIONAL GROWTH AND PROSPERITY WILL NOT NECESSARILY HELP THE REALLY HARD-CORE POOR. IN ORDER FOR THEM TO RISE FROM POVERTY, THEY FIRST NEED SUCH HELP AS CAN BE GIVEN THROUGH SPECIAL READING, COUNSELING, JOB TRAINING, AND HEALTH PROGRAMS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "PHI DELTA KAPPAN," VOLUME 47, NUMBER 2, OCTOBER 1965. (LB)
