BooknewsFifteen contributions address the theory, practice, and reform of working with youth who are at-risk in our schools. The text begins with an overview, followed by sections which cover the social, political, and health aspects of at-risk youth; theories on at-risk youth; students and mothers speaking out in their own voices; cultures and ethnic groups that are often ignored; and needed and necessary changes. The authors suggests that schools need to become seamless organizations where educators and human service persons work side by side, and that schools need to learn to compensate for deficiencies created by families.
