Success for At-Risk Students. Conference Proceedings (Chicago, Illinois, February 4-7, 1987).
The 1987 conference on "Success for At-Risk Students" focused on the following types of students: (1) school dropouts; (2) teenage parents; (3) students with truancy problems; (4) young offenders; (5) substance abusers; (6) the poor; (7) those isolated in rural areas; and (8) students who have chronic difficulties with school work. The conference provided an opportunity for education professionals to analyze policies, programs and services for at-risk students and to examine alternatives to traditional educational systems. No immediate preventions or cures were presented, but suggestions were made for optimistic, persistent approaches in meeting the challenge of at-risk students. Summaries of eight presentations are given. The titles of 54 sessions are listed. (VM)
