Dilemmas of Difference: Van Tech's Schools-within-a-School Model.
Kelly, Deirdre M.
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v42 n3 p293-305 Sep 1996
Part of Canada's Exemplary Schools Project, Vancouver Technical Secondary School--a large inner-city comprehensive school--meets the needs of a diverse student population through "schools-within-a-school." Case study focuses on the "dilemma of difference," in which efforts of elite, vocational, cultural, and dropout-prevention minischools to engage students may highlight and stigmatize perceived differences.
