Rescuing the Women Who Rescued the Girls: Those Other Public Schools.
Steet, Linda
Educational Foundations, v13 n2 p27-46 Spr 1999
Reveals how the author's interpretation of the development of reformatories for girls underwent a revisionist transformation during her work with an alternative school for delinquent girls, which challenged her interpretation of the impact of reformatory life. Explores questions of positionality, i.e., gender inequality and African-American and working-class understandings of and responses to female juvenile delinquency. (SM)
