I just finished reading a review copy of Urban Youth and School Pushout.

This is an extraordinary feat of research. Although this book focuses on the GED, it's an extremely useful read for understanding the relationship of neoliberal policies, political economy, and school pushout.

I plan to use it in my graduate classes to model how to do macro/micro research. Plus Tuck's use of YPAR methodology - researching and theorizing with youth who have been pushed out - shows the other side of knowledge production. Plus, this seems to be one of the rare applications of Indigenous theories to urban education? This is a huge intervention that we badly need in educational research.

The paperback version is not available yet, but when it comes out, I will be assigning this book.
