The book looks at the crisis of a growing underclass of students who arrive at school under-prepared to learn, fail to learn effectively, drop out of school and live out their lives unemployed, underemployed, unemployable, and too often in prison. The book provides detailed information on effective programs that have been successful in addressing the needs of these difficult children. Essential components of effective programs are identified and effective schools and programs are described at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. A special emphasis focuses on violent, violence-prone, and bullying students and how to deal with them. The book serves as a complete reference book, with an extensive topical bibliography, school self-evaluations, recommendations for where to go for help, and personal interviews with teachers and students in more than 200 schools. MAKRET: For administrators and teachers in elementary, middle, and high schools.
