Lalley, James P.; Gentile, J. Ronald – Theory Into Practice, 2009

Weiner, Lois – Theory Into Practice, 2003
Why is classroom management especially problematic for urban teachers, and why has research yielded so few helpful answers to this question?

Raywid, Mary Anne – Theory Into Practice, 1976
The concept of classrooms as self-determining communities may be a hindrance to democratic education, since, typically, the main impediment to freedom for the young comes not from external interference but rather from the child's own limitations as to skill and knowledge. (MB)
