(p.1) Introduction
What's Wrong with the Poor?

Mical Raz

University of North Carolina Press

This book was the first of a series of publications on experiments involving what would become known as sensory deprivation, which were carried out with human subjects. It reveals that experimental research and infant–observation studies made by liberal policy makers and mental health experts viewed the lives of low–income children and their parents by focussing on what was missing. It notes that this perception was based on Lady Bird Johnson's description of the children– that would be served by Project Head Start—many of them African American—from low–income homes.

Keywords:   sensory deprivation, Lady Bird Johnson, Project Head Start
