Problem

Inadequate recognition by institutions of the transition through adolescence

Nature:
Typically, in Western societies and institutions such as schools, there is no equivalent to the tribal rites-of-passage. Indeed in many Western high schools there is inadequate recognition of developing maturity which aggravates adolescent delinquency, drug-taking, violence or suicide, and contributes to a disaffected, under-achieving student body.
