If educational reform is to succeed, it must attend to the perspectives of students-those most directly affected by schooling, but least often consulted about its efficacy. This is the premise of the first book both to feature student perspectives on school and to foreground student voices; middle and high school students are the primary authors of the eight chapters collected in this volume aptly titled In Our Own Words. Reflecting differences of gender, racial, and ethnic background, and school context, the student authors write passionately and eloquently about their experiences of and desires for school.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The authors urge educators to concentrate on the school's role in supporting student learning rather than on the "best practices," to concentrate on the relationship between students and teachers, and to connect change to grades, not to large scale asssessment. They also offer several other suggestions, but one that stands out is to make students participants in reform. * pol *

The volume offers a variety of useful models for co-authorship with students. * Anthropology & Education Quarterly *
In Our Own Words offers a lively and vivid account of students' experiences within school. The students' voices are fresh; their stories are engaging. It is should be of interest to a wide group of people concerned about education. -- Annette Lareau, Stanley I.Sheerr Professor, University of Pennsylvania
