"Based upon their careful reading of the science of reading and the inequities in America's schools, these experienced educators have assembled a set of professional tools to help teachers transform even the most mundane of commercial language arts programs into culturally relevant, culturally sustaining, antiracist curricula. Educational alchemy at its best!"
--P. David Pearson, Evelyn Lois Corey Emeritus Chair in Instructional Science, Berkeley School of Education, University of California, Berkeley
"Edwards and her coauthors have written an important book. They propose the CARE framework as a road map to equitable literacy instruction. Empowering teachers to leverage students' funds of knowledge and literacy histories alongside the mandated literacy curriculum materials is at the core of this framework, and recommendations are provided for achieving this goal."
--Pamela Mason, senior lecturer, Harvard Graduate School of Education
