Can the Disadvantaged Succeed in Reading?
Smith, Blanche Hope
A short review was made of the family, community, and school problems of disadvantaged children. The author then turned her attention to the help that the teachers of these children can give toward developing and improving the children's self-image and promoting and reinforcing positive attitudes. Opinions are expressed as to why some past educational programs for the disadvantaged have not been successful, and descriptions are given of programs and ideas that work. The author challenges reading teachers to give their unstinted aid to disadvantaged students who are attempting to find a new way of life. References are included. (NH)
