Why should we waste our time with the culturally deprived student? Yes, I said waste. When a child is in our charge for at least ten years of his life and at the end of this time cannot function as a productive member of society, then we have wasted not only our time but also his time. We have wasted our energies, money, and talents. There is a tragic waste of human potential. What can we do to end this waste? How can we prepare the culturally deprived child to live in our complex world?
