This chapter draws on ethnographic observations and focus groups to examine New West High School (NWHS) more than a decade after the arrival of safe schools to the campus, offering evidence for how informal and formal control recoupled on campus and with it an alignment of trust and peer relations. This final chapter concludes relates the findings of the book with the significance of knowledge and moral authority on the front lines of schools, the role of trust in moderating conflict among diverse young people, and local social resilience in a neoliberal-paternal era.

Keywords:   frontline work, moral authority, neoliberal, social resilience, social time
