"Adolescent Education: A Reader, a stimulating collection of carefully selected essays, provides a cross-disciplinary approach to understanding today's adolescents. The authors, leading scholars as well as practitioners, confront stereotypes of teenagers and reframe the way we think about adolescents and adolescence. The contributors offer hopeful visions for respectful, nurturing, and effective schools where youth are challenged to learn and to grow intellectually, emotionally, and socially. A must-read for all educators."---Kathleen deMarrais, Professor, University of Georgia
