Risk and Resilience in Student Transitions to High School.
Catterall, James S.
American Journal of Education, v106 n2 p302-33 Feb 1998
Explores the concepts of risk and resilience applied to eighth graders and suggests advantages in considering a definition of risk grounded in actual school performance and behavior rather than to various group-level probabilities of failure. Evidence shows the importance of family supports, school responsiveness to students, and student involvement in school and community activities in raising performance. (GR)
