Format: Library Binding
This book that elaborates on Dr. Cortes dissertation work and is both insightful and inspiring. The students in his study have clearly persevered in spite of extraordinary challenges and have demonstrated great resilence. You will be inspired by this book if you believe in social justice for all students. It is clearly written and the passion of the authors is apparent. I recommend this book highly.
