Summary Annotation Confronts the patterns of school failure often faced by minority groups in the US by presenting a socioacademic framework that is based on the notion that all groups can have comparable access to quality schooling, comparable participation in the schooling, and derive comparable educational benefits from their participation. Organized around three interrelated components--communication, integration, and cooperation--the volume combines theoretical concepts with actual classroom practices that support change.
