A Predicament of Innocents: Might the Schools Help? (Paperback)
The sixty essays and vignettes are about the intersection of learning and school as seen and understood by long-time teacher and photographer George Stranahan. The writings are solidly progressive, and well stocked with facts and references to support that position. The photographs are of Stranahan’s students taken as part of class projects in self-understanding or as their eighth-grade graduation portraits. While the photos were taken in the studio, the children, “the innocents,” present themselves with a forthright intimacy.
