The beauty and power of Framework are its scope and breadth. What began as a guide for educators to better understand their students is now a multifaceted, multidisciplinary set of tools and resources that are applicable across society. The book expands the integration of relationships across all boundaries. --Gayle C. Manchin, Past President, National Association of State Boards of Education (NASBE)
The concepts from Framework were taught by Bethanie Tucker to many of our faculty and administrators last spring. Those concepts, combined with increased student services advisors and program directors, community outreach, faculty involvement and a lot of hard work, resulted in our annual attrition rate going from 6% to 4.3% last year. After all, it does take a village. --Ada Gerard, Campus President,Heald College, Rancho Cordova, CA (May, 2009) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

It isn't intended to solve poverty or to deal with broad structural issues, social policy, or any of that.
It is a framework for middle class people who serve the poor to understand the often perplexing behavior of those they serve. It doesn't apply to many. But, it is dead-on for many others.
In the end, it comes down to rules and priorities for survival in one class differ from another. It compares and contrasts these rules. Since the author believes school is a middle class environment, she offers suggestions for helping lower class students adapt to this change.
There is a lot to make those who seek offense become offended.
Take it as useful insight into a single facet of poverty, cringe a little as you read the example dialogs, and you will gain a better understanding.
Don't buy any of her other books. She just copies and pastes from this one.
