Educating Street Children: Some Cross-Cultural Perspectives.
Epstein, Irving
Comparative Education, v32 n3 p289-302 Nov 1996
Analyzes institutional responses to homelessness among children and youth in the United States and Brazil as a means of understanding the workings of the neoliberal state, both in developing and developed nations. Highlights a major contradiction of neoliberalism--its promotion of symbolic political and social inclusion, while simultaneously relying upon coercive and exclusionary institutional practices. Contains 41 references. (Author/SV)
