Dr. Warnie Richardson uses four true life stories of incarcerated youth to illustrate the nexus between the role of education and community in the prevention of wasted lives and social turmoil in his book "Voices from the Margins."

Texts are generally very expensive but this is released at a modest price in the hope that teachers, moms and dads and students can benefit from the the years of research and the tales within to take the dialogue on this important issue further

AYDY Press announced today the release of a textbook on juvenile crime titled "Voices from the Margins" by Dr. Warnie Richardson. Dr. Richardson is a Professor of Educational Psychology and Special Education at Nipissing University in Ontario, Canada.

The author writes about his years of research while being an educator of incarcerated youth. He utilizes four true life histories to illustrate the correlation between poverty, poor academic success and potential delinquency. Dr. Richardson examines the stories of his then most promising jailed students and compares their lives then and now that they are adults.

“The love of educating is apparent in his work,” said AYDY President Tom Bulmer. “I am also a lawyer working in the youth justice system and I am impressed that Dr. Richardson contrasts these true histories with academic theories and cold data while resolving to plain common sense. There is not much mystery for those of us who work in the field about the root causes of juvenile crime but few researchers dare to address the obvious and then back it up scholarly.”

The four young histories are moving examples of trouble, waste and pain. They are disturbing but familiar.

"Voices from the Margins" is priced at only $20.00 Canadian Funds. It is now available at http://www.aydy.ca and will be shortly available online at Amazon.com and from your bookstore when ordered by ISBN #1897242034.

“Texts are generally very expensive but this is released at a modest price in the hope that teachers, moms and dads and students can benefit from the the years of research and the tales within to take the dialogue on this important issue further,” Bulmer concluded.
