First published in 1975. Remedial education aims to help the pupil who is failing. It is richly rewarding to the committed teacher but makes great demands on him. Olive Sampson, whose conviction of the importance of this form of schooling is based on extensive personal experience and research, gives an objective account of its history, present status and best practices.
