Relational Qualities between Selves and Communities.
Thayer-Bacon, Barbara J.
Journal for a Just and Caring Education, v2 n3 p283-303 Jul 1996
The problems we face in America's schools and cities stem from our orientation to the individual/community relationship. Selves and communities are interconnected, interdependent, and relational. Implications for school policy and practice are discussed through the metaphor of a classroom, contrasting classic liberal and sociological constructivist perspectives, and ending with Dewey's relational, democratic perspective.
