Underachievement: The Bart Simpson Syndrome.
Shaughnessy, Michael F.
The causes and types of student underachievement and suggestions for remedying the problem are discussed. Because the reasons for underachievement are numerous, different for individuals, and often overlapping, solutions must consider the unique context. Recommendations include increasing students' self-esteem; increasing community involvement; offering counseling, referral services, and study skills tutoring; and encouraging student interests. (LMI)
