The conference brought together from all over the Nation acknowledged leaders of public school programs expressly designed to realize the potentialities of the educationally disadvantaged. The purposes of the conference were to review promising efforts in this field, to identify those characteristics of pupils and of their homes and communities which hinder achievement, and to project new approaches that warrant exploration.
