This book is the result of the authors' intensive consulting and research in inner-city elementary schools. Research shows that many poor children come to school unprepared for the academic and behavioral demands of the classroom. Their language and readiness skills are substantially behind those of their more affluent peers. As time goes by, many students fall progressively further and further behind and face an ever-widening achievement gap. They are often placed in special education classes and are disproportionately impacted by disciplinary referrals, suspensions, and expulsions. This is especially the case for African American males.
