Keeping Kids Engaged and in School
Gonzaga University recently conducted a study that focused on dropout prevention in middle school. The study suggests this early intervention provides “an early warning system for identifying potential dropouts, a bigger variety of academic opportunities and more rigor and additional funding for community-based social support programs”. (Read the full report, “Enhancing Middle School Student Experiences”).
We at DreamBox couldn’t agree more. But why wait until middle school? Why not start with elementary school? This is where a child’s foundation for learning really takes hold. As DreamBox and teachers work together to address intervention for elementary schools, we hope more and more schools incorporate prevention programs to help students succeed.
