From Disengaged to Empowered
Bottom line for every school district: Increase graduation rate and decrease drop out rate.
A middle school or high school student's decision to not attend regularly, to misbehave, or to expend low effort are all consequential behavioral indicators of a student's disengagement from school and thus might be strongly predictive of a student's decision to drop out. Most of the students who eventually drop out begin disengaging from school long before they actually drop out. The transformation from 'Good to Great' necessitates an understanding of the magnitude of student disengagement, (especially in middle school) and its impact on student achievement. Disengagement also plays a significant role in (a). driving the nation's graduation rate crisis and (b). kick-starting the school to prison pipeline.
