Beyond Ephebiphobia: Problem Adults or Problem Youths?
Astroth, Kirk A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v75 n5 p411-13 Jan 1994

Recent research shows that today's American teenagers are healthier, happier, better educated, and more responsible than past teens. Ignoring these facts scatters valuable resources and dilutes efforts to help the minority of genuinely troubled youths. (MLH)
