"You Can't Get There from Here": Research and Redirections
de Castell, Suzanne; Jenson, Jennifer
Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education, v109 n1 p252-267 2010
This chapter presents a discussion of impediments, obstacles, and immobilities. It draws heavily on a prior study of queer street-involved youth, a "needs analysis" that was supposed to precede the establishment of dedicated housing for homeless "queer and questioning" youth. The purpose of this chapter is to identify and consider several specific "blockages" that study brought to light, often in the voices of the participants themselves, and to try to say something useful about what these blockages might mean for reconceiving the ways, means, and ends of education in general, and learning in particular.
