The Disadvantaged Child: His Personal and Educational Needs.
Black, Millard H.
An overall perspective is made of the disadvantaged child in relation to his education. Various personal and social characteristics of such a child are enumerated as well as what characteristics the teacher should have. The author names three primary needs of the disadvantaged child: cultural readiness, language readiness (both expressive and receptive), and a family that appreciates the value of education, that will support the school in its efforts, and that will provide reinforcement of the values taught there. Four areas are suggested as warranting organization and curricular research. Some of the fallacies present today in the area of educating the disadvantaged are discussed. References are included.
