Revolutionizing Education: Youth Participatory Action Research in Motion
(Routledge/Taylor & Francis, 2008)
Revolutionalizing Education makes unique contributions to the literature on young people by offering a broad framework for understanding a ground-breaking critical research methodology known as Youth-led Participatory Action Research. YPAR is a way to involve young people in defining the research questions and problems most relevant in their lives—and more importantly in acting upon them. Many scholars have turned to YPAR as a way to address both the political challenges and inherent power imbalances of conducting research with young people, while remaining sensitive to the methodological challenges of qualitative inquiry in recent years. This collection offers the first, definitive statement of YPAR as it relates to sites of education, in particular, drawing on a unique combination of theory and practice, and bringing together student writings alongside those of major scholars in the field. Michelle Fine is a distinguished professor of psychology, urban education, and liberal studies at the Graduate Center.
