Kayata, E. (2017, September 15). New alternative high school program thriving.

Have you read Eric Jenson’s new book? Here’s an introduction to this must read for all teachers and school leaders in high poverty schools.  I recently sat down with Eric Jensen to talk about his new book Engaging Students with Poverty in Mind: Practical Strategies for Raising Achievement. If you haven’t come across Eric Jensen’s work before, you’re missing out. He reads between 200 and 300 peer-reviewed studies per year and has a great way of taking research and making it really practical and accessible for real teachers in real classrooms. Not only does he have a compelling personal story, he has a contagious passion for educating children that manages to balance a bracing understanding of the reality we face with a boundless optimism for the miracles we can create in the classroom each day.
