School-Work and Mother-Work: The Interplay of Maternalism and Cultural Politics in the Educational Narratives of Kentucky Settlement Workers, 1910-1930.
Tice, Karen W.
Journal of Appalachian Studies, v4 n2 p191-224 Fall 1998
In the early 1900s, college-educated women who came to Appalachia as reformers and teachers developed contradictory relationships with Appalachian mothers. Writings of Lucy Furman and Ethel deLong, who worked in eastern Kentucky settlement schools, reveal intimate cooperative relationships with mothers, even as teachers aimed to replace "backward" child-rearing practices with middle-class "expert knowledge." Contains 88 references. (SV)
