From the Publisher: By carefully documenting how space was made for Jenny—a child who didn’t fit the school mold—this book offers a renewed sense of human possibility and an attainable vision of what schools can be. The authors demonstrate that it is only by attending to each and every child that schooling can begin to achieve its most noble aim: equality. ..
