This volume investigates problems with the neoliberal school reform movement, and how youth–adult partnerships have resulted in more effective reforms within schools and community organisations nationally and internationally. Stemming from an eight-year ethnographic study at a civic-themed (US) public high school, the volume highlights the process of creating a school governance structure which produces active and informed citizens. Made up of executive, legislative and judicial branches, the program gives students the power to make, implement and review school policies and practices – a model that has found to effectively distribute leadership and trigger organisational learning, and is thus at the forefront of civic education.
