"Creeping Like a Snail Unwillingly to School": Negative Images of School in Children's Literature.
Greenway, Betty
New Advocate, v6 n2 p105-14 Spr 1993
Notes that some children's literature echoes many criticisms of the U.S. educational system and presents school as a place to be avoided. Suggests that such books have a place at all levels of the curriculum, for young readers as well as would-be teachers, because such criticism is part of a dialectic that keeps organisms healthy. (RS)
