Examined in this book are issues related to the education of at-risk children and youth. Part 1 of the volume consists of 12 original papers presented and discussed at the Council of Chief State School Officers' (CCSSO) 1987 Summer Institute. Papers concern: (1) values, standards, and climate in schools serving students at risk; (2) schools and poor communities; (3) race, income, and educational inequality; (4) why effective schools rarely exist for at-risk elementary school and adolescent students; (5) contexts that constrict and construct the lives and minds of public school adolescents; (6) educational challenges and opportunities in serving limited-English-proficient students; (7) achievement for at-risk students; (8) productive educational practices for at-risk youth; (9) public support for successful instructional practices for at-risk students; (10) accelerating elementary education for disadvantaged students; (11) adolescent pregnancy prevention; and (12) building a network of opportunity for the majority of youth through a public/private careers service. A summary and discussion of the institute concludes this part; part 2 contains the Council's recommendations for action, policy statement, analysis of goals and activities to be pursued by the Chief State School Officers, and a model state statute to provide educational entitlements for at-risk students.

Resiliency

While much of the recent research about effective schooling focuses on students' academic performance, the role of schools in young ... On the other hand, when schools fail students, these young people could not be more at risk.

A few years ago, resiliency theory was relatively new to the fields of prevention and education. Today, it is at the heart of hundreds of school and community programs that recognize in all young people the capacity to lead healthy, successful lives. The key, as Benard reports in this synthesis of a decade and more of resiliency research, is the role that families, schools, and communities play in supporting, and not undermining, this biological drive for normal human development. Of special interest is the evidence that resiliency prevails in most cases by far -- even in extreme situations, such as those caused by poverty, troubled families, and violent neighborhoods. An understanding of this developmental wisdom and the supporting research, Benard argues, must be integrated into adults' vision for the youth they work with and communicated to young people themselves. Benard's analysis of how best to incorporate research findings to support young people is both realistic and inspirational. It is an easy-to-read discussion of what the research has found along with descriptions of what application of the research looks like in our most successful efforts to support young people.

How is risk managed in your school? Is it dealt with internally, by an external agent, or not at all?This book is an introduction to the necessary maintenance and management of risk in schools. The concept of risk in schools is not a fad: the 'risk movement' is important and is not going away. Schools must be thinking about developing strategic processes that foster an understanding of risk management as being the natural outcome of a professional school culture.There are many approaches to risk management. This book advocates a whole school approach, let by the School Board and Principal, wit structured processes and a clearly defined framework. It champions a view of risk whereby regular review is inherent within the school operations and culture.
