Mr. Glick also co-authored a book entitled The Soledad Children which centers on Diana v State Board, the landmark class-action case the co-authors, working for California Rural Legal Assistance, brought which attacked and ended the use of culturally biased, English-only IQ tests on ten- and eleven-year-old farmworkers and other Hispanic children. Tens of thousands had been relegated to classes for the "mentally retarded" based on the tests. The book traces the beginnings of CRLA and the legal services program started in 1966 by Lyndon Johnson and Sargent Shriver and documents the changes to justice that it brought and the strategies employed.
