Falling through the Cracks. Crack-Exposed Children in the US Public Schools: An Educational Policy Issue.
Thomas, Janet Y.
Journal of Education Policy, v15 n5 p575-83 Sep-Oct 2000
Examines whether crack-exposed children are necessarily doomed for failure and why specialized educational policies and programs are necessary. Reviews relevant research and explores implications of early-intervention and school-based programs. Punitive policies against crack users have displaced need for policy work in education.
