Taking Advantage of the Disadvantaged.
Fantini, Mario D.; Weinstein, Gerald
The Record (Teachers College, Columbia University), v69 n2 Nov 1967
The problem of the effective development of educational programs for the educationally disadvantaged is discussed. Salient points for the revitalization of American education are presented, including the major thesis that all American children are educationally disadvantaged. To improve the education of disadvantaged children, the educational process is examined. Major suggestions include parent-teacher participation in curriculum planning, a total educational program encompassing early childhood through college, the development of curricula relevant to the learner's environment, and school oriented diagnostic procedures to determine individual program requirements. Implications for the use of computers in future educational systems are presented. (JM)
