- Publisher's Summary
- This is a close examination of the lives of marginalised young people in schools. Essays by scholars and educators are complemented by youth poetry, prose, and visual art. The book includes insights from Australia, United Kingdom, Polynesia, United States, and Canada and is grounded in educational and community practice and policy. The content covers the range and intersections of marginalisation: poverty, Aboriginal cultures, immigrants and newcomers, gay/lesbian youth, ruralurban divides, mental health, and so forth. Presenting challenges faced by marginalised youth alongside initiatives for mitigating their impact, the contributors critique existing systems and engage in a dialogue about where to go from here.
