The choice of this particular piece of research for analysis was to some extent influenced by the experiences of my field placements in a Children’s Aid Society and in Provincial Welfare. In both settings I worked with families receiving public assistance and became concerned about the generally poor performance and adjustment in school of many children in these families. Increasing emphasis is being placed on the need for education. It is important to examine the situation in order to see why these children are not successful, so that changes can be brought about to meet their educational needs. Without adequate education and training the future for these children in our present society would appear to be rather limited in terms of participating fully in the community.
