Abstract

The East End Community Heritage School (EECHS) was originally established in a diverse working class riverfront neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. EECHS has now been displaced to a third location outside of its community of origin. The displacements generate increased levels of routine, everyday violence for the kids and raise questions about the school's sustainability, the community served by the school, the possibilities of a working class imagined community in the school, and the impacts, financial, educational and ideological, of school resettlement on families, children and youth.
