School Success for Students at Risk: Analysis and Recommendations of the Council of Chief State School Officers.
Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC.
Examined in this book are issues related to the education of at-risk children and youth. Part 1 of the volume consists of 12 original papers presented and discussed at the Council of Chief State School Officers' (CCSSO) 1987 Summer Institute. Papers concern: (1) values, standards, and climate in schools serving students at risk; (2) schools and poor communities; (3) race, income, and educational inequality; (4) why effective schools rarely exist for at-risk elementary school and adolescent students; (5) contexts that constrict and construct the lives and minds of public school adolescents; (6) educational challenges and opportunities in serving limited-English-proficient students; (7) achievement for at-risk students; (8) productive educational practices for at-risk youth; (9) public support for successful instructional practices for at-risk students; (10) accelerating elementary education for disadvantaged students; (11) adolescent pregnancy prevention; and (12) building a network of opportunity for the majority of youth through a public/private careers service. A summary and discussion of the institute concludes this part; part 2 contains the Council's recommendations for action, policy statement, analysis of goals and activities to be pursued by the Chief State School Officers, and a model state statute to provide educational entitlements for at-risk students.
