"Safe Spaces": Reflections on an Educational Metaphor.
Boostrom, Robert
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v30 n4 p397-408 Jul-Aug 1998
Looks at the familiar, though largely undiscussed, figure of educational discourse, "safe space." Shows "safe space" to be an emerging metaphor for classroom life through an examination of four instances of usage. Offers a hopeful response to pervasive concerns about individual isolation in an increasingly stressful and pluralistic world. (DSK)
