Reviews

“This book is a ‘must read’ for caring professionals, especially school administrators and teachers in schools where students are a multivariate population experiencing complex social and cultural scenarios. The book explores how these scenarios complicate schools in ways that require educators to have deeper knowledge of education, administration, and the law…an excellent resource providing an array of legal and other lenses to guide professionals in providing responses to those they educate and serve.”
