Explorations in Ethnic Studies
The intent of Joan Sullivan's project as described in this article is one that can only be applauded -- working toward minimizing ethnocentrism and xenophobia must be seen as a sine quo non for a nation or a school community which aspires to realize a democratic ideology. Furthermore, there is no more important an age group on which to focus this project than that of the adolescent who is on the threshhold [threshold] of adult freedom and responsibility. Finally, educating the imagination toward a more just society for all through literature is a most meaningful use of the secondary school curriculum.
