Dr. Christopher Slaton, in his newly published book Education and Science, reveals a combination of new techniques parents and educators alike can use to help better educate the youth and resolve the issues hindering them at home and in school. His work encompasses years of research conducted in Merced County, California, where his organization Save Our Youth helped the community’s children through various workshops, community events, mentoring services and numerous other learning programs. Dr. Slaton’s comprehensive program covers not only the youth, but also their parents, teachers, and health- and human-service professionals, with the aim of helping improve California’s public school system.

Dr. Slaton’s book is the latest in a series also featuring Education and Science: How the Body Lives, the Brain Learns, the Human System Thinks, and How Human Systems Research Responds; and Education and Science: the Information Processing Age, the Learning Parent and Child in Crisis. Each of these books are reports, written in response to the need for new approaches to help improve learning and support services to children, youths, and young adults in crisis due to family decline, school failure, delinquency, lack of employable skill sets, and poverty. Dr. Slaton’s latest work seeks to synthesize eighteen years of focused learning about family, child, and community development.

Education and Science: Save Our Youth offers readers alternative approaches to living, learning, thinking, and responding in poor home, school, neighborhood, and workplace networks. It is an invaluable aid for parents and educators alike as a tool to help ensure a positive future for the next generation.
