– Catching Up the Underachieving Children of Poverty

Examine critical studies on high-performing, high-poverty schools to identify how schools can fulfil the mission of educating all students to proficiency, especially students at risk.

  • 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
