An action research project on juvenile gang members in educational institutions. The issue is that the students in gangs are seen differently to begin with; from security to teachers and staff. Students in gangs are being mistreated instead of guided. I interviewed 3 people in this project: Manny, a student in a gang who at the time was in his fourth year in high school; David Stovall, a professor at University of Illinois - Chicago; and Giovanni Guerrero, a teacher and program coordinator at an alternative high school in Chicago.
