Six Strategies To Raise Student Achievement
Rowman & Littlefield
Introduction by Jack E. Oakes
While 857 students dropout of school each hour of the school day, our decision makers debate test scores. There is a solution for ailing schools, but our country's conversation on school reform does not focus on the real secret to raising achievement in high schools: STUDENT MOTIVATION! An award winning educator with 44 years of experience at all levels of education, I have learned successful methods for motivating students to perform at higher levels. It is my life's mission to share these ideas with people who want to make a positive difference in education. People like you!
