Learning from Students about Representation, Identity, and Community.
Shields, Carolyn M.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v35 n1 p106-29 Feb 1999
Students from a predominantly Navajo high school discuss their lives, educational experiences, culture, and aspirations. They value their home language and culture, but want to achieve success in the wider world. Students' views often contradict educators' perceptions. School communities must build on these differences, rather than on homogeneity. (33 references) (MLH)
