Constant Frustration and Occasional Violence: The Legacy of American High Schools.
Kohn, Alfie
American School Board Journal, v186 n9 p20-24 Sep 1999
Supports Linda Darling-Hammond's contention that many adolescent difficulties are not intrinsic, but stem from mismatches between teens' developmental needs and experiences provided by most secondary schools. A depersonalized, punitive, rote-learning ambience cannot meet adolescents' needs for affiliation, autonomy, and cognitive challenges. Sidebars illustrate teens' alienation from school. (MLH)
