Update on Law-Related Education: Student Edition, n4 1995
Written by students for students, this edition of "Update on Law-Related Education" contains three articles on three questions about unity and identity in the United States. In the first section, "Are We In or Out?" students identify some of the signals they receive from institutions, adults, and their peers, and describe ways they are treated differently than adults in their schools and communities. In the second section, "Being Part of the Solution," students describe programs and activities that young people have initiated and/or are participating in that connect them to their community, school, and family. In the third section, "Patchwork Quilt vs. Melting Pot," students offer their thoughts on the debate about the degree to which U.S. institutions and laws promote pluralism, on the one hand, and assimilation, on the other.
