Richard Weissbourd teaches at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government and at its Graduate School of Education.From Library Journal:
Harvard-affiliated Weissbourd includes snippets of troubled children's (and parents') lives to enhance the theme of this solid work, that there is no simple circumstance (low income, single parent) that gives rise to a disadvantaged childhood. What does commonly exist in such an environment is a poverty of knowledge about children and their development, a failure to understand the interrelation of family and community circumstances. Weissbourd identifies institutions he feels well positioned to develop and practice informed holistic programs to salvage children at risk: schools, child protective services, police, and community officials. Boston's South End Community Center, Hawaii's Healthy Start, New Haven, Connecticut's Lincoln Bassett Elementary School, and South Carolina's Resource Mothers program are cited as examples of efforts that work. Policymakers, government representatives, educators, and social workers could attend to this thoughtful and reasoned argument, perhaps to the benefit of more than the children. Recommended for academics, professionals, and the general public.?Suzanne W. Wood, SUNY Coll. of Technology, Alfred
