Tait, Gordon (1999) Youth cultures, style and education. In Meadmore, Daphne, Burnett, Bruce, & O'Brien, Peter (Eds.) Understanding Education : contexts and agendas for the new millennium. Prentice Hall, Sydney, New South Wales, pp. 75-81.
If our only sources of information were the newspapers and the television, the available evidence would suggest that youth is a terrible problem. Not only would we be convinced that most crime is committed by the social category of youth, but that young people are running out of control, that the streets are no longer safe, that all manner of standards are dropping, that the schools are in chaos, and that, as a consequence of these facts, society faces ruin. Fortunately, there is a considerable body of academic literature which rebuts these assertions, and via a more rigorous and objective analysis of society, it has sought to explain the practices, cultures and circumstances through and by which contemporary youth is formed.
