The achievement gap is widening and more students than ever before are struggling in school.  In the United States over 7,000 secondary students drop out and teachers are unsure how to help their struggling students.  In this book Eric Jensen argues that all students can graduate, become lifelong learners and ultimately be successful.  This book represents a true research based approach to this overwhelming situation.  The research provided in this book will show that: brains, IQs and attitudes can change and teachers can make lasting differences if they have the right tools.  From the very first chapter, teachers and administrators will learn how to help their struggling students become lifelong learners.
