xxx, 342 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 25 cm
Roots of change: Lucile Blueford's long crusade -- "This lone negro girl": Ada Lois Spiuel, desegregation champion -- Girls on the front line: grassroots challenges in the late 1940s -- Laying the groundwork: Esther Brown and the struggle in South Park, Kansas -- "Hearts and minds": the road to Brown v. Board of Education -- "Take care of my baby": the isolation of the first "firsts" -- "We raised our hands and said 'yes we will go'": desegregating schools in the mid-1960s.
"A new history of school desegregation in America, revealing how girls and women led the fight for interracial education The struggle to desegregate America's schools was a grassroots movement, and young women were its vanguard. In the late 1940s, parents began to file desegregation lawsuits with their daughters, forcing Thurgood Marshall and other civil rights lawyers to take up the issue and bring it to the Supreme Court. After the Brown v. Board of Education ruling, girls far outnumbered boys in volunteering to desegregate formerly all-white schools. In A Girl Stands at the Door, historian Rachel Devlin tells the remarkable stories of these desegregation pioneers. She also explains why black girls were seen, and saw themselves, as responsible for the difficult work of reaching across the color line in public schools. Highlighting the extraordinary bravery of young black women, this bold revisionist account illuminates today's ongoing struggles for equality"

Surviving gym class

May 2, 2018
Torres, John Albert, author.
New York : Enslow, 2018.
48 pages : color illustrations ; 25 cm.
Gym can seem like a drag to many teens who'd rather be doing something else, but it's a great excuse to get up and moving in the middle of the day. Gym class is less about fierce competition and measuring everyone by the same fitness standards. Instead, it's all about developing confidence and competence in sports, and, yes, having fun. Of course, there are still locker rooms, stinky gym clothes, and other kids with their own issues to deal with. This guide will help teens navigate all the difficult moments, like being picked last for a team or fielding snarky comments about lack of coordination or skills. This book provides indispensable advice to help readers arrive prepared with the right gear and the right attitude.

"An inspiring vision of what our teachers and students can accomplish if trusted with the challenge of developing the skills and ways of thinking needed to thrive in a world of dizzying technological change. Innovation expert Ted Dintersmith took an unprecedented trip across America, visiting all fifty states in a single school year. He originally set out to raise awareness about the urgent need to reimagine education to prepare students for a world marked by innovation--but America's teachers one-upped him. All across the country, he met teachers in ordinary settings doing extraordinary things, creating innovative classrooms where children learn deeply and joyously as they gain purpose, agency, essential skillsets and mindsets, and real knowledge. Together, these new ways of teaching and learning offer a vision of what school could be; and a model for transforming schools throughout the United States and beyond."--provided by publisher.

For decades, hazing rituals; such as excessive drinking, drug use, paddling, and sexual abuse - have been required by many teams and organizations as a rite of passage, while administration and department heads have turned a blind eye. In recent years, several young men and women have lost their live from hazing-related practices in Pennsylvania, New York, Texas, California, Louisiana, Virginia, and Massachusetts. But these practices and rituals are no longer linked just to large organizations and schools. Secondary schools are also seeing an increase in hazing lawsuits due to sexual and alcohol abuse conducted by sports teams. In Hazing: Destroying Young Lives, anti-hazing journalist Hank Nuwer assembles an extraordinary cast of experts to critique the evolution of this dangerous practice, from the first fraternity hazing death at Cornell University in 1873 to present-day tragedies. This hard-hitting compilation addresses the numerous, significant, and often overlooked impacts of hazing, including sexual exploitation, mental distress, depression, and even suicide. Hazing: Destroying Young Lives is a compelling look at how universities, the military, and other social groups can learn from past mistakes and protect their members going forward.
