With continued concern about school violence, bullying, dropout rates, safety, and mental health, schools across the nation are focusing on measures that will ensure a positive school experience and a healthy transition into adulthood. Educators play a vital role in ensuring the level of connectedness that can help foster not only school success, but also success in life as a whole. In light of this fact, Peeling Back the Onion identifies student risk factors and provides practical solutions to fostering connectedness to school. Veteran educator Dr. Kecia Ashley brings 25 years experience as an educator together with case studies and academic research to create an empathetic and insightful resource for anyone who cares about education in their community.
The goal of Peeling Back the Onion is an understanding of what connectedness truly means, and how it affects students, educators and the community at large. Educators, school administrators and parents will gain understanding the importance of their roles to the success of students, both in school and in daily life, along with crucial knowledge of why many students experience failure and what measures can be taken to prevent failure. They will feel newly informed and encouraged about their roles, as well as empowered to make a difference in the lives of struggling students.
