Domestication as Reform: A Study of the Socialization of Wayward Girls, 1856-1905.
Brenzel, Barbara
Harvard Educational Review, v50 n2 p196-213 May 1980
This history of Lancaster, a nineteenth-century reform school for poor girls, illustrates the change in reform ideology from belief in the efficacy of family-style environment to concern for protecting the social order from "hereditarily deviant" children. The role of institutions as mechanisms for social control of the poor and of women is also examined. (SK)
