Perils on an Essential Journey: Building School Community.
Schaps, Eric; Lewis, Catherine
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n3 p215-18 Nov 1999

Caring is not synonymous with "easy"; teachers are pivotal in student-centered classrooms; schoolwide change is essential; school values must be examined; and assessment must be aligned with instruction. (Contains 10 references.) (MLH)
