A shift in perception: What if at-risk students hold great potential?

Have students failed themselves when they can’t catch up in their classes? Are they beyond hope when they’ve come to the point of dropping out? Or is it because the system and the educators have actually failed them?

 

These concerns are among the many things that today’s educators think about when they deal with students who seem to be performing poorly in classes. To make things worse, many teachers are confident there are students who have failed and dropped out of classes but would have been top performers if only they tried harder.

Was there something that could have been done? The answer remains unclear for many educators. What is clear, however, is that the educational system that exists at present cannot answer to the learning inclinations of some students.

Previously, it seemed that there was no other choice on the matter. Students had to find a way to succeed, or to at least get passing marks and somehow try better in college, or they fail. It also seems that many schools of today don’t give much leeway to students who can’t attend classes due to one reason or another.

It is fortunate, then, that the trend seems to be changing and that the education sector is now more open to changes. There are now some alternative educational institutions that are emerging and these offer at-risk and dropout students the opportunity to earn a state-recognized high school diploma in a smaller, more individualized, self-paced high school environment.

Given this alternative to the traditional learning approach, it should now be easier for more students to get the education that they deserve.

A good education: The path to gainful employment

The connection between education and employment has been one of the key motivations for young adults to finish high school and attend college. In the United States, statistics show that the dropout levels in high school have decreased between 1990 and 2010, indicating more interest in obtaining a state-approved diploma among high school students.

The path almost inadvertently leads to college for some. For others, a college degree simply becomes instrumental in securing a position at a respectable company in a specific field. Others thrive well in the labor force with a high school diploma and some experience in hand.

However, high school attrition rates remain high, even as greater numbers of adolescents eventually graduate. While a vast array of socio-economic complexities are at play in these circumstances, the inability of some young people to fall in step with their peers in the classroom plays a significant role in a student’s remaining in or leaving school.

Without finishing the high school level of education, opportunities for college become relatively scant. For most youth, not being in school could mean a life of early employment in menial positions, or at the worst, to a life of crime.

Greater efforts have been placed in alternative instruction methods. Charter schools, like Mavericks in Education, have formulated research-based curricula to address specific needs. Programs like this are often geared toward a smaller ration between students and the teacher to allow the educator to focus on the learning process of each student, at his or her own pace.

With these methods, students attuned to other learning styles may have a better chance at further education.
