|Summary:||"An entirely fresh approach to ending the high school dropout crisis is revealed in this groundbreaking chronicle of unprecedented transformation in a city notorious for its 'failing schools'"--
Chicago. Research shows that students with more than one semester F during their freshman year are very unlikely to graduate. The "Freshman OnTrack" program responds to failing grades, missed homework, and other red flags, making it possible for staff to keep students on track. Phillips details how this translates knowledge into action-- and is revolutionizing how teachers grade, mete out discipline, and provide social, emotional, and academic support to their students. -- adapted from jacket
