Turnaround School

Here is one more story about how a high risk school turns around without overly evaluating and firing teachers and without any mention of homework. They emphasize attendance followed by behavior in the school, without banking on behavior in the home, i.e. homework, which schools cannot control and becomes a major reason why kids don't want to go.


Dr. Kenneth Goldberg, is the author of The Homework Trap: How to Save the Sanity of Parents, Teachers, and Students, published by Wyndmoor Press.

 I recommend giving copies of the book to the teachers at your child's school. Discount purchases are available through Wyndmoor Press. Single copies can be purchased at Amazon.
