Beyond "Compensatory Education." A New Approach to Educating Children.
Nimnicht, Glen P.; Johnson, James A., Jr.
This book presents a new set of heuristic notions that might be used in designing educational programs for low-income and ethnic-minority children. The authors see no hope for the concept of "compensatory education" as a way of improving the education of disadvantaged children; they hope that this selection of articles will provide a fresh point of view that must be adopted if "American society is to solve some of the pressing educational and social problems it currently faces." (Author/SB)
