Caring in an Unjust World: Negotiating Borders and Barriers in Schools.
Eaker-Rich, Deborah, Ed.; Van Galen, Jane, Ed.

Blount); (2) "Justice or Caring: Pedagogical Implications for Gender Equity" (Jan Streitmatter); (3) "Uncommon Caring: Male Primary Teachers as Constructed and Constrained" (James R. King); (4) "Forbidden To Care: Gay and Lesbian Teachers" (Rita M. Kissen); (5) "Understanding Caring in Context: Negotiating Borders and Barriers" (Jaci Webb-Dempsey, Bruce Wilson, Dickson Corbett, and Rhonda Mordecai-Phillips); (6) "Caring and Continuity: The Demise of Caring in an African-American Community, One Consequence of School Desegregation" (Van Dempsey and George Noblit); (7) "Interpersonal Caring in the 'Good' Segregated Schooling of African-American Children: Evidence from the Case of Caswell County Training School" (Emilie V. Siddle-Walker); (8) "Caring in Community: The Limitations of Compassion in Facilitating Diversity" (Jane A. Van Galen); (9) "Caring in One Urban High School: Thoughts on the Interplay among Race, Class, and Gender" (Lynn G. Beck and Rebecca L. Newman); (10) "Caring as Empowerment: School Collaboration and Community Agency" (Carmen I. Mercado and Members of the Bronx Middle School Collaborative); and (11) "Conclusion" (Deborah Eaker-Rich, Jane A. Van Galen, and Ellen L. Timothy). References follow each chapter. (SLD)
