Time for Action: A New Deal for At-Risk Students.
Conrath, Jerry
NASSP Bulletin, v72 n504 p36-40 Jan 1988
Although schools can do little to help youth from desperately poor, violent, or drug-addicted families, they can educate other at-risk youngsters who are discouraged or defeated learners. Schools can raise these kids' self-esteem by bestowing serious work assignments, (not "warm fuzzies"), solitary learning space, or external rewards for everyday accomplishments. (MLH)
