Synopsis of "It's Just Easier Not to Go to School"

This book examines the lived experience of adolescent girls at school and provides an analysis of girls who demonstrate an ability to perform well academically, yet resist the regimes of school in various ways. Drawing on a study of ten middle school girls, it describes the conditions of life in school that lead to disengagement and resistance. In the social world of the school, the girls experience conflicting desires and identities. Resistance to schooling seems to be more about resistance to identity. This book makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of the complex worlds that students and teachers create. It is essential reading for anyone interested in adolescent studies.
