Summary This project is an attempt to understand what kind of environment today's adolescents need and what teachers, parents, and communities can do to address those needs. Further it examines how adolescents and their environments can best be supported to effect the outcomes and ideals our society promises but does not always deliver. In this it is not yet another attack on already maligned schools that produce impressive outcomes despite their limited resources, increased obligations, and the sustained barrage of attacks from competing interest groups.
