Caring in an Unjust World : Negotiating Borders and Barriers in Schools
The contributors to this book tap into an important, but largely unexamined perspective: examining how social structures and relationships within schools help to define, enable, or constrain an ethic of care.This sociological, critical perspective is used to examine K-12 schooling, focusing upon grounded qualitative studies of student groups currently and/or historically considered marginal or for whom school presents significant barriers (i.e., African Americans and Hispanics; gays and lesbians; and women). The authors have grapled with the difficulties and opportunities presented by considering multiple perspectives of caring and what that means to those living within schools.
