Dawn Leigh Sutherland, Laura Sokal
Portage & Main Press, 2003 - Education - 212 pages
The voices that are represented in this book offer differing perspectives on ways to support inner-city children and families. Each essay offers a unique contribution to our understanding of the interdependence of the people in these communities, yet all share the common message that inner-city children and families have strengths that can be built on to maximize their positive outcomes. This book is especially relevant to teachers who work with children and families with challenges.
