Teachers and the Children of Poverty.
Based on a study of the "transactions" between students and teachers in 13 real but disguised cities, and describing and analyzing the successes and failures of education as measured by what is happening to children, this document is comprised of: an introduction to the problem; method of work and observations; Group A--Green River, Eastern Park, Central Park, West Park, South Park; Group B--Upstate City, Capital City, Border City, North City; Group C--West City, East City, Central City, South City; discussion and recommendations; and references. Throughout the book are reproduced drawings amounting to a representative selection--obtained from hundreds of children's sketches or pictures. The predominant trend of attitudes and assumptions were determined for each city; then, somewhat typical views selected to indicate what seemed to be happening in each school system studied.
