Why Youth Culture
Cintron, Ralph
Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education, v7 n2 p19-21 Fall 2010
In this article, the author discusses youth culture and raises concerns about the tricky social terrain modernity offers for youth identity. He discusses familiar "topoi" or thematics that seem to drive most work on youth culture, suggests that justice and fairness are moral imperatives, and that acknowledging the worthiness of difference is one way to realize a more just world.
