Schooling Students Placed at Risk: Research, Policy, and Practice in the Education of Poor and Minority Adolescents

By Mavis G. Sanders | Go to book overview

instrumental in helping to provide an explicit understanding of how youth determine their interaction with these structures and gain the power to transcend them. Family, school, and community partnerships can play a vital role in fostering resilience by helping students identify specific factors that hinder success, and by assisting in the development of culturally competent prevention and intervention strategies and support mechanisms. These partnerships can also provide tangible evidence that will help to eradicate the fixation on the at risk paradigm. If families, schools, and communities are cognizant of and responsive to student needs, they have the potential to produce poor and minority youth who are more at promise for success than at risk for failure.
