Educating the Disadvantaged, 1972-73: An AMS Anthology, Volume V.
Flaxman, Erwin, Ed.
The selections in this fifth volume of the series represent some of the current thinking and research on the education of the disadvantaged - a term no longer appropriate but retained in order to maintain the historical continuity of the series of which this anthology is a part. The selctions are chosen to show how society in general and the schools in particular are providing educational opportunities and learning experiences that respond to this group's special characteristics and needs. A number of papers are written from perspectives of different disciplines such as psychology, sociology, economics and anthropology; they suggest ways in which several intellectual disciplines have contributed to the understanding of the education of diverse populations. Others are chosen because they record promising programs and practices or report research that can be used in creating learning situations that will enhance educational opportunities for this group - a goal that is yet to be achieved. Five papers are included in the section on equal educational opportunity, six in the section on learning and achieving, and nine in the section addressing the classrooms and schools. (Author/AM)
