Loss, Belonging, and Becoming: Social Policy Themes for Children and Schools


by Brad Mitchell 1990

I am interested in how images of loss, belonging, and becoming are shaping social policy and school reform in late twentieth-century America. In particular, I want to explore what challenges the collusion and collision of these three themes place on educational leaders for tomorrow's schools. Thus, this chapter is organized as follows: (a) a critical explanation and examination of loss, belonging, and becoming as central themes in human development and social policy for public education; (b) a look at the implications of these three themes on how we govern, administer, and operate public schools; and (c) a discussion of how recent social policy and school reform responses to loss, belonging, and becoming relate to the sociohistorical pursuit of educational equity and excellence.
