Future Generation Teen Talk Show
West Palm Beach, FL (Vocus) April 21, 2010
Dr. Emma Banks, author and lifetime educator, proudly announces the release of her publication Teen Reflections on Education – a compilation of essays published through Xlibris, a leading print-on-demand self-publishing company.
Many people are of the belief that teenagers nowadays are somewhat lacking in ambition and values. Dr. Emma Banks’ book, Teen Reflections on Education, disproves this belief through a collection of essays written by a diverse group of teenagers.
Written by high school students, the essays in this compilation offer readers a unique look into the minds of the teens. The essays bear the students’ reflections on the importance of education and the significance of its role in their lives. The compositions included in the book are as diverse as the writers themselves – each piece looks into different topics such as the inspiration experiences of the students’ family member or friend in their educational struggles, the students’ opinion on the US educational system and how it compares to the systems in other countries, and the students’ suggestions for the improvement of education in the United States.
The author, Dr. Emma Banks, compiled and published these essays with the aim of showing audiences that teenagers are not as wayward as they seem to be. It aims to prove that teenagers, despite their seeming nonchalance, do have aspirations, dreams, and compassion.
Teen Reflections on Education is one of the newest publications from Xlibris. For more information on this book, log on to Xlibris.com.
