Adolescents and Resistance to Schooling: A Dialectic.
Starr, Jerold M.
Youth and Society, v13 n2 p189-227 Dec 1981
Provides a macrohistorical, conflict perspective on students' resistance to schooling in contemporary America. Proposes that adolescence is not a universal stage of life, but a social category produced only in industrial societies; resistance to schooling thus represents the most recent stage in the struggle between age strata over social goods.
