Disadvantaged Child. Volume 3, Compensatory Education: A National Debate.
Hellmuth, Jerome, Ed.
This volume of the "Disadvantaged Child" Series presents papers on all aspects of the compensatory education debate, written in large part by many of the educators who played leading roles in this program. Part I provides a comprehensive overall picture of the program. Part II discusses culture-fair testing, "Jensenism" and intelligence, and the significance of IQ testing and of the study of race differences. The final part deals with such problems as educating inner-city children and populations with differential characteristics, modification of cognitive skills, instructional techniques, and major programs geared to the needs of the disadvantaged child. For Volumes 1 and 2 of this "Disadvantaged Child" series, see ED 029 054 and ED 029 065, respectively. (Author/DM)
