Stories from Pinegrove (1992)

Women's Education des femmes, Summer 1992 - Vol. 9, No. 4

What is the effect of violence on education?

These children are not "bad kids" as many people believe. They are trying the best that they can to survive. So often they are asking for help through their behaviour.
