Boarding Schools at the Crossroads of Change: The Influence of Residential Education Institutions on National and Societal Development is an essential, applicable historical reference for anyone interested in positively molding the social future of the world's troubled youth. Guided by its up-to-date research and comprehensive scope, you'll have the past and future of residential schools at your immediate disposal, making it easier to see ways you can touch and inspire today's down-and-out youngsters.Building on the success of residential education in Israel and the positive field testing of the so-called "charter schools" in America, Boarding Schools at the Crossroads of Change gives you an evocative, challenging look at the need for a wider proliferation of residential education. You'll see how such vision can turn stopgap programs obsessed with correction and social control into vital societal resources that will help you reach out and transform the wayward and underprivileged young who struggle daily among us. Here are just a few of the topics you'll read about:

- the three boarding school contexts--national society, the state government,
and the represented institutions
- how the Reformation and Counter-Reformation changed boarding schools
- the mutuality of the Kollegium's formal objectives and the students'informal goals in 16th-17th Century Transylvania and Eastern Hungary
- England's public schools after the Industrial Revolution
- the ideology of the Israeli youth villageThe roads travelled by disadvantaged children and adolescents are too often rutted with impermanence and despair--and these roads are becoming more crowded as time goes on. Without a developmentally sound environment in which to live, grow, and learn, such youths are destined to wander through a succession of failed and destructive settings. Fortunately, Boarding Schools at the Crossroads of Change shows that positive, socially beneficial, and growth-oriented programming can build a sound structure of life and learning where the roads of hopelessness intersect.
