Complexities and Paradoxes of Community: Toward a More Useful Conceptualization of Community.
Shields, Carolyn M.; Seltzer, Patricia Ann
Educational Administration Quarterly, v33 n4 p413-39 Oct 1997
Uses data from a longitudinal, ethnographic study of two predominantly Navajo schools to reexamine the concept of community. Explores issues of bilingualism, diverse community goals and attitudes, cultural understandings, and conflicting values embedded within the schools' social and educational contexts. Conceiving the school as a moral community, community of difference, and community of dialog will aid educators' efforts elsewhere. (54 references) (MLH)
