  10. No Disposable Kids

    Educational literature is replete with evidence that the most effective educators are those who treat students respectfully. Yet current systems rely greatly on punishment and coercive strategies. At a time when many are pessimistic about problems facing youth, the authors contend that schools and communities can help all children thrive and succeed. No Disposable Kids challenges the notion of any child being 'too far gone' to be helped. The authors provide insight into the world of these youths by sharing strategies drawn from the best resiliency models and their success with actual cases. By reframing rebellious acts as signs of resilience, the authors uncover the natural self-righting tendencies of youths who face adverse circumstances.
