Abstract:

"Combating Hatred provides several practical case studies of teachers, administrators, and school board members who have successfully combated intolerance, prejudice, and hatred in their schools. Each chapter contains a scholar-practitioner section that attempts to narrow the gap between theory and practice. The case studies presented illuminate important person-centered educational theories, especially those of John Dewey and his Progressive successors, which can help all educators combat intolerance, prejudice, and hatred before the victims turn uncontrollable violence."--BOOK JACKET.
