Summary
Sixteen educators and education writers grapple with the wide range of variables that kids experience as they move through adolescence. The contributors present perspectives on how issues such as race, gender, class, and ability interact with and affect adolescent development, supported by research, testimonials, and personal experiences. Sadowski introduces the topic in "Why Identity Matters in ... More School" and draws some conclusions in "From Understanding to Action."
