"At last a book that sheds light on an issue that has been the subject of confusion and distortion for years! Dr. Thomas's research provides readers with the ability to understand how children have been affected by their mother's drug addiction and how these circumstances make these children vulnerable to early school failure. She informs educators what can be done to serve the needs of these children. For those who seek more information on how to best help, this book will be an invaluable resource."
-Pedro A. Noguera, Steinhardt School of Education, New York University
"In "Educating Drug-Exposed Children, Janet Thomas begins the exploration of acres of new and important ground. Dr. Thomas opens readers' eyes to the blurred lines between a school system's academic focus and the realities of the students we are working to educate. An important book."
-Sam Stringfield, Center for the Social Organization of Schools, Johns Hopkins University
