by Frederick L. Redefer — May 02, 2007IN ENGLAND THERE IS TREMENDOUS interest in the peace among the common people. The rationing of food and clothing, longer hours of work, after-hour duties on the Home Front, higher taxes, queue lines for buses, newspapers and the simplest necessities of life are borne with a minimum of complaint or wrangling because they are the price that Englishmen are willing to pay to beat "Jerry." But for the price of war sacrifices, the common man of England will demand a better country, better wages and better living in the post-war era.

by Dorothea Anagnostopoulos & Stacey A. Rutledge — 2007This article examines the implementation of a school sanctioning policy in two urban high schools. Drawing on a cultural sociological perspective, the authors trace the explanations and remedies of school and course failure that faculty in both schools enacted in response to the sanctioning policy. The authors conclude that although the policy prompted faculty efforts to improve schoolwide tests scores, it had little impact on how principals and teachers understood and responded to the difficulties that students encountered in their academic courses. Although principals viewed course failure as largely intractable, teachers attributed a moral causality to it, locating its cause and responsibility in their students’ moral deficiencies. The study thus raises questions about for what and to whom sanctioning policies ultimately hold schools accountable.
