My mother who has been in education for over 30 years introduced me to Ruby Payne. Her work is very interesting and written in any easy to read easy to understand manner. I strongly recommend these books to anyone not just educators or public admin. They books give you better understanding of just how much socioeconomics plays a roll in who we are, how we present ourselves, and the way we perceive the world

Pretty over simplified, basic information. It was the only book our library system has by Payne. I still want to read her other works, looks like amazon it is.

It was ok. Information was pretty much what I expected and nothing really grabbed me or created any ah ha moments. Case studies were interesting. Quick read.
