Creating safe schools for all youth is now a central part of the progressive agenda in American educationand Kevin Jennings is at the forefront of that fight. Mama's Boy, Preacher's Son earned an A- in Entertainment Weekly, was featured in Salon and The Advocate, and was called "e;a great read"e; by People.From the Trade Paperback edition.
