Ways of Being at Risk: The Case of Billy Charles Barnett.
Barone, Thomas
Phi Delta Kappan, v71 n2 p147-51 Oct 1989
Born in rural Tennessee, 15-year-old Billy Charles Barnett is proficient enough at hunting and fishing to support himself by teaching his survivalist skills to others. His economic well-being is threatened by required school attendance. Given the impoverished state of American education, society would not necessarily benefit from a lower dropout rate. (MLH)
