The author describes an after-school service-learning and character education program for students with emotional, behavioral, and learning problems and there nondisabled peers. SO Prepared for Citizenship honors the memory and tradition of Dr. Fritz Redl and David Wineman 50 years after the publication of their book, Children Who Hate. Written in the style of that classic book, this article describes the characteristics of students who have “egos that cannot perform” and program strategies designed to help children and adolescents develop "controls from within."
