As a former Youth Care Worker for over 20 years, I often have used the description 'disposable youth' when referring to society's attitude toward youth. My ears picked up immediately when I heard the Ideas program tonight on CBC Radio that had scholar, Henry A. Giroux talking about " Disposable Youth ".
And here all these years I thought I'd come up with that term! Lol
Anyway this guy sure got my attention. It is rather disturbing what he has to say, visionary really, and he brings it all into focus when it comes to the war on youth and our hardened culture.
