High School Equivalency as Counter-Space
Schwartz, Joni
New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, n144 p37-47 Win 2014
This chapter is based on the findings of an ethnographic study of an urban General Education Development (GED®) program and suggests that, for some marginalized African American and other young men of color, adult education programs are counter-spaces (Yosso, Ceja, Smith, & Solorzano, [Yosso, T., 2009]) of spatial justice in opposition to previous negative school spaces. The chapter is framed from the perspective of critical race theory.
