This volume focuses on both the background causes that place students "at risk" and specific strategies that have been shown to help address students' academic risk. Various chapters cover such key topics as the extent and consequences of risk in U.S. education, resiliency among at-risk students, the effectiveness of various interventions at reducing risk, and systemic supports for overcoming educational risk. Issues in the educating of African American, Hispanic, and second-language-learning students are each discussed, as well as Title I, technology education, and professional development in high-poverty contexts.

Americans of all socioeconomic levels send their children to school to prepare them for good jobs and good wages. Most people expect their children to gain a better lifestyle and to live in better neighborhoods than they did when they were growing up. Children go to school with these expectations. However, somewhere in this process, many students from the socioeconomically disadvantaged minority experience failure, become discouraged and drop out of school. This waste of young minds and lives must stop, and somehow these at-risk individuals must be turned into productive, contributing members of society. Unless something is done soon, a significant number of the disadvantaged youth will continue to experience failure and will continue to drop out of the school system, thus placing an even larger burden upon society as a whole.

EMPOWERING DISCIPLINE by Vicki PhillipsThird Edition (Revised and Expanded, (c) 2011) Most school discipline programs have one thing in common; their primary goal is to CONTROL student behavior. This tends to work with the majority of students; however there remains a group with whom nothing seems to work--so we label these students as "at-risk" and attempt to tighten our control. The author of this book, Vicki Phillips, was principal of an award-winning alternative school for at-risk students for twenty-two years. Since all of her students were at-risk, she had to come up with strategies which would work with them, which meant applying a non-traditional approach. After years of being successful with students labeled difficult by the mainstream, Vicki shares her approach in this book and guarantees that it works! Vicki calls for a shift in our thinking about the issue of control. Traditionally, schools try to "control" these students. When this doesn't work, the schools escalate the control, which causes the students to escalate their behavior. Students with no aspirations, who feel they have nothing to lose, can end up "winning" any power-struggle since they don't care about our "consequences"! "Control" becomes counter-productive and these students spiral downhill. In contrast, Vicki's strategies recognize the need of most at-risk students to be self-directed, and they involve working with students instead of against them. They are based on therapeutic principles and are designed to build emotional intelligence and "perspective modification," so that students will view the situation in a different way and choose to respond more appropriately. COMMENTS ABOUT EMPOWERING DISCIPLINE "Vicki Phillips' book EMPOWERING DISCIPLINE provides what every classroom teacher needs these days: practical strategies and perspectives to help kids who aren't happy campers in school discover their true strengths and abilities. Her book can save teachers from wasting time on externally-controlling discipline systems and help them turn the 'at-risk' student into the 'at-promise' learner!" --Thomas Armstrong, PhD., Author of THE MYTH OF THE ADD CHILD, MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES IN THE CLASSROOM, & AWAKENING YOUR CHILD'S NATURAL GENIUS "Finally! A discipline model that blends the needs of at-risk students, indeed all students, and the kinds of teacher behaviors that can make school an exciting and emotionally safe place for everyone. If you are looking for effective, positive, and preventative ways to deal with disruptive behavior, rebelliousness, resistance, passive learning, and problems of student dropout or truancy, you'll find answers here." --Jane Bluestein, PhD., author of 21st CENTURY DISCIPLINE: Teaching Students Responsibility & Self-Control and BEING A SUCCESSFUL TEACHER "Vicki Phillips clearly understands at-risk kids and their powerful need to make their own choices regardless of whether the choices get them in trouble. EMPOWERING DISCIPLINE is an exciting practical tool for anyone working with 'discipline resistant' kids because it gives step-by-step directions for how to get the most resistant kids to make good choices about their behavior as well as their school work. If you ever wondered what in the world to say or do with an oppositional teenager, EMPOWERING DISCIPLINE is the help you need. --Joyce Divinyi, M.S., Licensed Professional Counselor, Director of The Wellness Connection, author of SUCCESSFUL STRATEGIES FOR WORKING OR LIVING WITH DIFFICULT KIDS

This powerful book explores how institutions of higher education can successfully serve “breakaway” students—first-generation, low-income students who are trying to break away from the past in order to create a more secure future. The gap between low-SES and high-SES students persists as efforts to close it have not met with great success. In this provocative book, Gross offers a new approach to addressing inequities by focusing on students who have succeeded despite struggling with the impacts of poverty and trauma. Gross draws on her experience as a college president to outline practical steps that postsecondary institutions can take to create structures of support and opportunity that build reciprocal trust. Students must trust their institutions and professors, professors must trust their students, and eventually students must learn to trust themselves. “A must-read for academics, policymakers, teachers, social service providers, police chiefs, and government officials.” —Martha Kanter, former under secretary, U.S. Department of Education “We need to pay attention to what Karen Gross says. Read this book, then share it.” —Mark Huddleston, president, University of New Hampshire “Karen Gross offers practical ideas based on her research and, more importantly, on her substantial leadership in assisting our nation’s colleges and universities serving at-risk students.” —Marybeth Gasman, University of Pennsylvania
