Arthur: A Tale of Disempowerment.
Rosow, La Vergne
Phi Delta Kappan, v71 n3 p194-99 Nov 1989
Recounts the case of Arthur, a neglected 9-year-old boy from an opulent home. Arthur's illiterate mother failed to provide him with books or a study area and refused to cooperate in a teacher-designed literacy program. Socioeconomic status can foster false assumptions about a child's home environment and its influence on literacy development. Includes five references. (MLH)
