From Risk to ResiliencyISBN: 9781475820966
The failure of continuation schools to educate our most vulnerable adolescent populations is slowly removing them from our educational landscapes. Millions of struggling teens, lacking alternatives, are being set adrift without capacity or hope. Yet their failures frankly, are unnecessary. Research-based study offering school-wide direction and practice is strongly evidenced throughout educational theory and practices, extending opportunities for significant continuation growth. A successful continuation setting, supported by study and introduced through From Risk to Resiliency, offers opportunities for program developers to bring together personal, closely held stakeholder values with program and classroom practices, opportunities only now being realized.
