"Drop-Outs" and "Push-Outs": Finding Hope at a School that Actualizes the Ethic of Care
Cassidy, Wanda; Bates, Anita
American Journal of Education, v112 n1 p66 Nov 2005
This study profiles a school that is committed to enacting the ethic of care with a population of underserved "at-risk" adolescents students with a history of criminal activity and dropping out or being expelled from school due to troublesome and troubled behavior. This article gives voice to the narratives of administrators, teachers, and students as they perceive and actualize care in policies and practices. It documents the additive impact of the caring approach in fostering hope and building more promising futures for high-need youth. (Contains 6 notes.)
