In a culture of school reform that focuses on student achievement as measured through standardized curriculum and testing, marginalized groups are traditionally less successful. For students who come from high-risk backgrounds such as being a person of color, living in poverty, being an immigrant, having limited English proficiency, and/or having a learning or developmental disability, success in today’s schools is limited, and the confidence and self-esteem of children can be irrevocably damaged (Larson, 2010).
