Tribal norms

Tribal norms | Buffy Hamilton's Unquiet Commonplace "Book" | Scoop.it
Shouldn’t we be hiring librarians who think and behave differently? Who see the world differently? Won’t that necessarily make for better libraries? I sometimes feel that librarianship is a closed society and that only those with a “very particular set of skills,” as Liam Neeson so cryptically stated in Taken, are accepted fully into its ranks. And I’m not talking about professional skills. I’m talking about tribal norms. If you’re not part of the tribe, how welcome or valued are you in this profession?

Are we afraid of something? If so, what?

Teacher: I see the difference in educational privilege every day. I live it. I am disgusted by it. | Buffy Hamilton's Unquiet Commonplace "Book" | Scoop.it
'Almost every day, I slip food to one of my students. Both of his parents are in prison. Or, one of his parents is in prison and the other is dead. We can’t quite get the full story from him....Where there is money, there is education. Where there isn’t money, there is excessive testing, lack of curricular options, and struggle.'
