Contemporary Culture • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Journalist Paul Tough offers insights based on his research into how society can best help children who are growing up in adversity be successful in school--and beyond. This includes descriptions of relevant studies, interviews, and examples, all of which the author conveys in a warm tone brimming with curiosity that carries listeners along and strengthens his points. Tough's hope is to influence policies and practices from the federal government right on down to individual schools, and the audio format, with a runtime of just a few hours, is an ideal way to reach busy politicians, administrators, and teachers. People who work with children or who have an interest in their well-being will benefit from this production. A.F. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2016]
