Students’ Guide to Colleges is different. Entirely student-written and edited, this invaluable resource cuts through the cant with comprehensive listings of the vital statistics and requirements for America’s top 100 schools accompanied by three totally honest, fresh, fun-to-read descriptions penned by attending undergrads from different walks of life. Want to know how big classes really are? How rigorous the academics get? Or how greek or granola, chill or up-tight, homogenous or diverse, gay or straight, a campus really is? Lively, irreverent, and insightful, the Students’ Guide to Colleges is the only guidebook that offers multiple perspectives on each school and tells it like it is so that college applicants can make the best choice when deciding where they want to spend their college years.

The average American high school student spends over 5000 hours in school during the four years it takes to earn a high school diploma. They interact with countless adults throughout this experience, but are they ever truly known? This question echoed through Michelle Muller's mind for weeks as she struggled to adjust to her first year teaching 10th grade English in the urban core of Kansas City, MO. On a whim one morning, she decided to make sure that every student in her class had the opportunity to be known and understood. What followed was something she never could have predicted, and it absolutely transformed the culture of her classroom. With her students' permission, she is now giving voice to the honest beauty of their work in hopes that others will be just as inspired to love their neighbor with the reckless abandon required to heal a community one life at a time.

Who has access to higher education today? At what financial and personal cost? Based on what conditions and criteria? How do students describe and interpret their experiences? And how can institutions facilitate and constrain successful participation and completion? These research studies extend current understandings of what it is to be a student in higher education by embracing the dynamic relationship between students as agents and institutions as living structures which impact on their lives. Focusing on the diverse experiences of today's non-traditional and traditional students, researchers explore how and why institutional rhetoric of inclusion, engagement, gender, and access may or may not be reflected in the reality of students' experiences. Student Affairs moves from theory to application by suggesting realistic strategies for addressing the challenges surrounding the interrelation of students and institutions. Each essay analyzes issues of access and participation in programs ranging from community college development studies to graduate studies. As a whole, this collection is a testament to how much institutional change has occurred in the social organization of postsecondary education, and how much more change is required to meet the challenge of equitable access and inclusion.

This participant-observation study presents the practice of school to work transition at two Japanese high schools, and explains variations about the modal career trajectory of low achieving students, drawing on Bourdieu's work. It helps to explain the relationship between social values, family ethos, industry, school and economic performance, and the relatively low class consciousness in Japan. It should be of interest to educationalists, sociologists and labour relations specialists studying Japan.

WRONG REASONS TO GO TO SCHOOL Going to school is not easy. You wake early in the morning and focus your attention on your classes throughout the way. When you return, you have assignments, studying, group discussions, etc to attend to. You struggle so hard to make good grades. Sometimes, you fail, you are down emotionally and physically. Sometimes, you pass but you be like you have not performed up to your set expectations. You ensure you attend classes; you give it your all because you already know that any mistake could lead to failure. Exam time comes and you begin to study as though your life depends on the exam. You do this for many years and this question pops up in your mind - "why am I even in school?" Then, there you are thinking and thinking, you are finding it difficult to provide an answer. Well, going to school is not a bad idea, but going to school for the wrong reason is not a good one. Imagine concentrating all your energy, strength, focus and going through all these stresses simply because of a reason or purpose that is found to be a wrong one? Imagine if all these stresses eventually do not give a tangible meaning to what you had become in life. Imagine if you still have to drop the result of these efforts and start a new pursuit for a better life. Imagine if it's all a waste simply because your reason and purpose for going to school wasn't set right from the beginning. Just imagine. Or are you currently thinking about what I just said? What if you just discovered that you went to school or are currently in school for the wrong reasons? Yes, I understand your situation, I have once been there, and I understand how it feels. That is why I have come to guide you through the wrong reasons people go to school. I have also come to show you the right reasons and the means through which you can right the wrongs. I also will be presenting to you the positive and negative effects of schooling on your career. These and more are what I have compressed into this book. Do you feel you are wasting time in school or you have wasted time? Are you just confused, or you are in a dilemma, you really don't know how to set things right? You do not know how to go about the future set in front of you? All you need to do is to keep this book set before you, read with passion and get your confusion alleviated. I'm sure you'll thank me. So what are you going to learn in this book: - THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SCHOOL AND EDUCATION- 10 WRONG REASONS TO GO TO SCHOOL- WHY PEOPLE DROP OUT OF SCHOOL- HOW SCHOOL SYSTEM FAILS YOU- THE THINGS YOU DON'T LEARN IN SCHOOL BUT ARE IMPORTANT IN YOUR DAILY LIFE- 10 GOOD REASONS TO GO TO SCHOOL- WHAT SHOULD YOU DO BEFORE GOING TO COLLEGE IF YOU ARE A YOUNG HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT GRADUATE TO ESCAPE SCHOOL SYSTEM TRAP?

Glossy television images of happy, industrious, and increasingly prosperous workers show a bright view of life in twenty-first-century China. But behind the officially approved story is a different reality. Preparing this book Gerard Lemos asked hundreds of Chinese men and women living in Chongqing, an industrial mega-city, about their wishes and fears. The lives they describe expose the myth of China's harmonious society. Hundreds of millions of everyday people in China are beleaguered by immense social and health problems as well as personal, family, and financial anxieties--while they watch their communities and traditions being destroyed.Lemos investigates a China beyond the foreigners' beaten track. This is a revealing account of the thoughts and feelings of Chinese people regarding all facets of their lives, from education to health care, unemployment to old age, politics to wealth. Taken together, the stories of these men and women bring to light a broken society, one whose people are frustrated, angry, sad, and often fearful about the circumstances of their lives. The author considers the implications of these findings and analyzes how China's community and social problems threaten the ambitious nation's hopes for a prosperous and cohesive future. Lemos explains why protests will continue and a divided and self-serving leadership will not make people's dreams come true.
