Elementary-School Programs for the Education of the Disadvantaged


by Muriel Crosby 1967

The role of the elementary school in the education of the disadvantaged child is crucial. The child enters school at five or six years of age already fairly well established in the pattern of his life. His accomplishments in the first few years of life will seldom be matched in quantity and quality by those of any other comparable span of time. He has entered the world as an extremely unfinished product, utterly helpless and utterly dependent. In a very few years he has become relatively independent, having mastered the complicated tasks of walking, of talking, of communicating through behavior and through language. He is well on the way from his earlier complete egocentricity toward accepting socialization. These are the expected accomplishments of the child whose environment is favorable to his growth and development.
