Education and the Many Faces of the Disadvantaged: Cultural and Historical Perspectives.
Brickman, William W., Ed.; Lehrer, Stanley, Ed.
This book examines various types of the disadvantaged in the United States, uncovers reasons for the multifaceted problem of social deprivation, and indicates constructive ways, through education, of helping the disadvantaged. Attention is also focused on the poor and disadvantaged in foreign lands. There are ten parts to the volume: the disadvantaged in urban America; the black American; the Spanish-speaking American; the North American Indian; the immigrant and refugee in America; the rural poor and America's undereducated adult; the middle class as culturally deprived; the culturally disadvantaged reader; the teacher and Federal programs for the disadvantaged; and, the disadvantaged in international perspective. Also included is an extensive bibliography on the school and the children of the poor. (Author/JM)
