Changing the Odds for Young People: Next Steps for Alternative Education.
Conrath, Jerry
Phi Delta Kappan, v82 n8 p585-87 Apr 2001
Since home is the most unequal environment in education, school should be an arena of equity. Alternative education can catalyze America's unrealized hopes by helping poor, discouraged youngsters overcome their most debilitating handicaps: rampant pessimism, failure to trust in effort, and mistrust of societal institutions. Doing nothing is not an option. (MLH)
