Revolutionizing Education Youth Participatory Action Research in Motion by Julio (University of Arizona, USA) Cammarota

Many scholars have turned to the groundbreaking critical research methodology, Youth-Led Participatory Action Research (YPAR), as a way to address both the political challenges and inherent power imbalances of conducting research with young people. Revolutionizing Education makes an extraordinarily unique contribution to the literature on adolescents by offering a broad framework for understanding this research methodology. With an informative combination of theory and practice, this edited collection brings together student writings alongside those of major scholars in the field. While remaining sensitive to the methodological challenges of qualitative inquiry, Revolutionizing Education is the first definitive statement of YPAR as it relates to sites of education.


In Revolutionizing Education: Youth Participatory Action Research in Motion, editors Julio Cammarota and Michelle Fine offer a compelling and complex vision of urban youth engaged in social justice research and action. In chapters that interweave theory, research, description, images, case study, narrative and reflection, readers are invited into the world of participatory action research (PAR), and specifically youth PAR (YPAR). -- Paula Echeverri and Kathy Hytten, Educational Researcher, Vol. 37, No. 8, November 2008
