The author sought to learn more about how violence affects learning by interviewing young people who are currently struggling with learning, either within or outside the school system. She explored how responses to trauma support or limit learning possibilities by interviewing young people and professionals engaged in the school system and in other education for youth.
This report is comprised of the interviews, which were taped and extracts transcribed. Only repetitions, “mmmms” and “aaahs” have been removed. Spoken language has not been edited to create a written format except where interviewees preferred to edit their words. All interviews are included in italics to draw attention to these words of wisdom.
