Communication Gatekeeping: A Response to Mediating Conditions in American Indian and School Personnel Interactions.
Cockrell, Karen Sunday
Journal of School Leadership, v6 n4 p368-98 Jul 1996
This paper's findings advocate looking beyond cultural discontinuity for an explanation of communication failure between American Indian parents and school personnel. Through "gatekeeping," American Indian parents mediate the communications dilemma wrought by conditions of distrust, racial tension, maintenance of tribal identity, dependence, and isolation. Transformational school leaders must create more inclusive learning communities. (44 references) (MLH)
