Effective alternative education programs: solutions for K-8 students at risk
The number of alternative education programs in the United States has increased significantly over the past several years. Unfortunately, the number of resource books addressing alternative education has not paralleled program growth. Filling a major gap in the literature, Chalker and Brown provide concrete solutions to challenging problems associated with the planning, development, and implementation of alternative education programs for K-8 students. They break the book into equal parts, treating, respectively, K-5, 6-8 and combined K-8 efforts at prevention and early intervention before students reach high school. Public school administrators and alternative program educators will find this book useful and educational professionals at the national and state level will appreciate the activities aimed at school improvement initiatives.
