Children and Families "At Risk": Etiology, Critique, and Alternative Paradigms.
Swadener, Elizabeth Blue
Educational Foundations, v4 n4 p17-39 Fall 1990
Examines the etiology, critiques, and alternative paradigms of the "at-risk" label, noting ways in which the use of that label is racist, classist, and paternalistic. The term "at risk" has become a cliche in some professional and public cultures which does a disservice to many children, families, and groups. (SM)
