Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As hate crimes and violence continue to hurt the innocent, our society has looked little beyond retribution and punishment for the perpetrators. This book breaks new ground by looking at the ways in which educators and school boards can work to develop transfomational agency for those students most at risk. By developing alternative schools that foster strong relationships through supportive communities, disaffected youth can find hope and trust within themselves as they continue their educational and social development. Undergirded with critical and border pedagogy, alternative schools effectively build transformative agency within their students by genuinely caring about their success.

Book News Annotation:

Many students who fail at school are confused about whether to blame the school, themselves, or their surroundings, and in this, says school psychologist, Goodman (counseling and special education, California State U.-Fresno), they reflect the confusion of society at large. He calls on the students themselves to describe their experience to provide clues to how educators can improve pedagogy and praxis.
