The Leftouts; Disadvantaged Children in Heterogeneous Schools.
Warden, Sandra A.
This work by a social psychologist is concerned with the consequences of the values, attitudes, and behavior of teachers and more advantaged peers for the educational experience of disadvantaged youngsters in heterogeneous schools. The academic, social, and emotional factors in these schools are interdependent and equally important for the potential of the "leftouts" for successful school adjustment. Chapters discuss the role of social class in differential school adjustment, the developmental process and the role of the family, and social and emotional adjustment in school in relation to the role of peers and of self-concept. The final chapter presents an analysis of causes, consequences, and cures of the social and academic maladjustment of disadvantaged youngsters. (NH)
