Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A revised and extended edition reintroducing the Five Bridges Junior High and following 24 students through their high school years and one year afterward. In this ethnographic study, the authors use interviews and observations of the multi-racial, multi-ethnic students, teachers, and administrators to determine the students' school and career choice aspirations, examining how the schools failed to help them achieve their dreams. The study touches on issues of family, economy, race, social class, and sexism. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
