Fifty years ago, students who were parents were a rarity in college classrooms, but by the beginning of the twenty-first century, over a quarter of all undergraduate students were parents. In Back in School, A. Fiona Pearson explores how these student parents navigate cultural norms and institutional resources, forging pathways as they journey to become better parents and successful students. Back in School examines how policy makers, professors, college administrators, counselors, and social workers provide or deny access to child care, tutoring, financial aid, or other campus- or community-based resources. Pearson further explores how social norms and governmental and organizational policies influence access to these resources and student parents’ experiences on campus and at home.

A collection of accessible and scientifically proven strategies for parents struggling with school attendance problems in children of all ages. School attendance problems are a common and worrisome challenge faced by many parents. Even in milder forms, poor school attendance can increase the risk of social, behavioral, and academic problems in childhood and adolescence, and even into adulthood. Unfortunately, parents often have trouble understanding their children's school attendance issues and are uncertain about how to help. Getting Your Child Back to School is intended for parents grappling with school attendance problems at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Covering a wide variety of attendance problems and special circumstances, the book offers practical, step-by-step strategies parents can use themselves, including asking the right questions, evaluating the severity of the problem, and knowing whom to consult. Parents will learn to change a child's negative thoughts around school, establish a clear and predictable morning routine, and set up a system of rewards for going to school. New to this edition is material on very severe and chronic cases, including discussion of educational alternatives; mindfulness approaches and parent involvement strategies; teletherapy and other options for young people who have been out of school for an extended period; and more extensive guidance on working with school officials. Easy to read and filled with concrete strategies, this book was the first of its kind dedicated to educating and arming parents with the tools they need to resolve their children's absenteeism; this new edition continues to offer the best available scientifically-proven guidance for parents determined to get their kids back to school.

The year is 1969 and Jack Sheffield is a young teacher in need of a job. In a room full of twenty-nine other newly qualified teachers, he's overjoyed when he's appointed to Heather View Primary. Jack is excited to start his first year there and to begin shaping young minds in a beautiful new location on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. But Heather View isn't as idyllic as it first sounds. In fact, it looks more like a prison than a primary school. With less than adequate funding and a head teacher who doesn't seem to care, it's no easy task to give the kids the education they deserve. But Jack's determined to do just that. Full of warmth and good humour, Back to School is like taking a nostalgic walk through the past to a simpler time... _____________________ What readers are saying: ***** 'I felt I was transported back in time.

“Shines a light on institutions that are teaching students, young and old, how to rebuild our economy and put America back to work” (President Bill Clinton). It’s a statistic that’s sure to surprise: Close to forty-five percent of postsecondary students in the United States today did not enroll in college directly out of high school, and many attend only part-time. Following a tradition of self-improvement as old as the Republic, the “nontraditional” college student is becoming the norm. Back to School is the first book to look at the schools that serve a growing population of “second-chancers,” exploring what higher education—in the fullest sense of the term—can offer our rapidly changing society and why it is so critical to support the institutions that make it possible for millions of Americans to better their lot in life. In the anecdotal style of his bestselling Possible Lives, Mike Rose crafts rich and moving vignettes of people in tough circumstances who find their way, who get a second . . . or third . . . or even fourth chance, and who, in a surprising number of cases, reinvent themselves as educated, engaged citizens. Rose reminds us that our nation’s economic and civic future rests heavily on the health of the institutions that serve millions of everyday people—not simply the top twenty universities listed in U.S. News and World Report—and paints a vivid picture of the community colleges and adult education programs that give so many a shot at reaching their aspirations. “Thoughtful and surprising.” —The Washington Post “Inspiring stories of older Americans attending secondary schools.” —Kirkus Reviews
