A few facets of that influence are highlighted, without any attempt at a systematic or chronological survey. The contributors are Morton Bloomfield, Douglas Bush, Paul Cantor, Paul D’Andrea, Alfred Harbage, David Hirsch, Cyrus Hoy, Murray Krieger, Arthur Sherbo, and Hallett Smith.

What can schools can do differently if these students are to thrive? As back to school season begins, we spoke to two university book clubs that read and discussed The Privileged Poor this summer.
