Demystifying Alternative Education: Considering What Really Works
Powell, Diane E.
Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v12 n2 p68-70 Sum 2003
The effectiveness of alternative programs requires an understanding of both research and practice. Essential components of alternative educational programs must include opportunities to build and foster resilience in our youth. Program elements must be reflective of the quality and standards mandated by the "No Child Left Behind Act of 2001." Staff must teach with empathy and compassion. A strong belief in the ability of children and youth to develop competencies associated with healthy development and to use problem-solving strategies in order to get their needs met is an essential element in alternative programs that work.
