The authors of this book are committed to providing information that will stimulate thinking and create a desire to change of the course of the educational infrastructure in an effort to save students who may be lost due to their life circumstances, such as lack of access to the technological equipment needed to help them develop appropriate skills to participate in the current classroom setting, and the difference in the background and life experiences of the ‘have-nots'.
