Do We Want the Canary to Sing? Thinking Alternatively about Alternative Education
Swain, Amy Elizabeth
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Alternative schools give us a perspective for viewing our educational system as a whole, while also considering the message and purpose of our institutions. Who does alternative schooling serve? What is the job of alternative schooling? Hugh Cale Community School, located in eastern North Carolina, offers insight into the role and purpose of alternative education from the perspective of students and staff. This work invites readers into the hallways of Cale to learn about the students and staff who work there. Cale is a site of contrast between the agency of individuals and the constraints of systemic institutional structures. This work is intended to speak back to the educational community about the position and possibility of alternative education.
