About
Remedial, illiterate, intellectually deficient - these are the stigmas that define America's educationally underprepared. Growing up poor, Mike Rose, nationally acclaimed educator and author, shared these labels. Now he takes us into classrooms and communities to reveal what really lies behind the labels and test scores. With rich detail, Rose demonstrates innovative methods to initiate "problem" students into the world of language, literature, and written expression. This book challenges educators, policymakers, and parents to reexamine their assumptions about the capacities of a wide range of students. Already a classic, Lives on the Boundary offers a truly democratic vision, one that should be heeded by anyone concerned with America's future.
