Overview

Using critical theory as a foundation, Alternatives in Education posits psychology's role in educating at-risk youth as the number one ingredient for student success. To reach and teach disaffected youth, the best psychological practices must be wedded to modern, multicultural perspectives. Alternatives in Education brings free choice and opportunity to a milieu of students and teachers alienated by competitive and hegemonic school models. Blending critical theory into the actual stories of the Wonalancet Alternative School, Alternatives in Education speaks to practicing educators of at-risk youth.
