After leaving school, how do underachievers fare in further education, in careers and in personal relationships such as marriage? This volume explores whether underachievers `catch up' after school to the level of their abilities, and the traits of those who do and those who do not. Issues such as personality variables, learning strategies, self-esteem, classroom structure, the educational system and parental styles are explored. Basing their analysis on the findings of a 13-year longitudinal study, the authors explore the factors that are associated with underachievement and ask what techniques have worked to help these students improve their performance.

This book provides a new contribution to raising attainment in secondary schools, with specific reference to able underachievers who are currently achieving C grades or less when they could be getting As. Standards are depressed each time a single able underachiever demonstrates a competence that is below his or her real potential. It lowers morale in that the progress of the whole school is reduced proportionately in line with the able pupils who aren't achieving their real potential, and resources are wasted every time these pupils start misbehaving or creating problems in school. This is a new and innovative approach, which is based on discussions with the pupils themselves and incorporates not just the usual basic subjects but also the creative areas of the curriculum and the wider community as a whole. Head teachers, senior managers, teachers and students, indeed all who are interested in raising standards and ensuring that pupils achieve their full potential will find this book to be an excellent resource.

Examine critical studies on high-performing, high-poverty schools to identify how schools can fulfill the mission of educating all students to proficiency, especially students at risk. The authors compiled the most important research on how low-performing, high-poverty schools achieved radical improvements in learning for their most vulnerable students and also identified eight best practices, breaking them down into specific strategies, often using real-life examples from successful schools.

Underachievement in school is one of the most widely used terms in education today. As a discourse it has been responsible for influencing government policy, staffroom discussions, as well as the pages of academic journals and the TES. It is also a subject which raises questions about what we expect from a fair and equitable education system. This book provides a critical analysis of two sides of the underachievement debate, at each of the three levels of focus - international, the UK and the individual. On the one hand, it will consider the 'crisis' account; of falling standards and failing pupils and, on the other, present an alternative account, which urges a re-evaluation of the underachievement debate in order to consider who might be underachieving and why.
