Engaging the Disengaged: How One School Re-Engages Students in Learning


by Lois Brown Easton, Dan Condon & Michael Soguero — 2014

Engagement can prevent struggling students from dropping out, and re-engagement in learning can help struggling students who have dropped out return to school and graduate.

The authors provide policy and practice recommendations as well as a discussion of factors that affect engagement.
