There Are No Children Here: The Case of an Inner-City School Addressing Issues Facing Children and Families Living in Poverty
Sallee, Mariel; Boske, Christa
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v16 n2 p61-70 Jun 2013
This case is based on real-life experiences of community school members within Horner School--an inner-city public school. Specifically, the case explores challenges faced by Cathleen, a 1st-year, White, female principal, who was hired by central office to "revamp a charter school" to promote a quality education for all children. The case raises questions about how school leaders might work in conjunction with school community members to understand to what extent, if any, issues of poverty impact school policy, curriculum, and pedagogy.
