The Kids Left Behind

Examine critical studies on high-performing, high-poverty schools to identify how schools can fulfill the mission of educating all students to proficiency, especially students at risk. The authors compiled the most important research on how low-performing, high-poverty schools achieved radical improvements in learning for their most vulnerable students and also identified eight best practices, breaking them down into specific strategies, often using real-life examples from successful schools.

  • Review essential leadership characteristics that improve student achievement.
  • Gain strategies for engaging parents, the community, and schools to work together.
  • Learn how to maintain high expectations for the underachieving children of poverty.
  • Find methods for creating a culture of assessment and data literacy.
