Stories from Pinegrove (1992)

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

What is the effect of violence on education? There are many children in our school systems who are labeled as "hyper", socially retarded, with behavioral problems, etc. We have readiness classes for the children who are unable to function properly in regular classrooms. 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.
