I Walk with Delinquents.
Ayers, William
Educational Leadership, v55 n2 p48-51 Oct 1997
A volunteer teacher working with juvenile delinquents in the Cook County (Illinois) Temporary Juvenile Detention Center's notorious Audy Home sees these kids as mirrors of his own teenage boys, deserving of compassionate assistance. Labeling other people's children as feral or superpredators is misguided. So are federal and state legislatures'"modest proposals" to try youth as adults. Teachers must transmit messages of hope to at-risk youth. (MLH)
