These engaging narratives and unique insights will help readers to better understand the interplay of school-related and personal factors that lead students to drop out of school. It is essential reading for K12 educators, school principals, counselors, psychologists, and everyone concerned with our nations dropout crisis.
An excellent read for educators who want a framework for understanding why students drop out. For those steeped in the field, especially those with experience with trauma-informed practices and those in alternative education, this book might be a little too familiar, even simplistic. However, for those new to education, I might even call this essential reading.
This was a worthwhile read. It clearly covers reasons that students dropout and includes straightforward suggestions at the end of the book to reduce dropout rates and help students stay in school. These range from classroom to system level, so there's something you can do no matter how far ahead or behind your school is on this issue. Good stuff.
