Hard Times for American Youth: A Look at the Reasons.
Uhlenberg, Peter; Eggebeen, David
NASSP Bulletin, v72 n508 p47-51 May 1988
According to national statistics on death rates, criminal behavior, and other indicators, the well-being of White adolescents has declined markedly between 1960 and 1980, despite certain improvements in families, schools, and youth programs. American culture seems geared to a selfish individualism inconsistent with maintaining strong families and communities. Implications for school policy are outlined. (MLH)
