Studies of early readers william teale

“Studies of Early Readers”William Teale

Early readers continue to be capable readers throughout their lives. Some may be deliberately taught to read by parents or siblings, but most grow into reading.

Early warning confirmed a research update on third grade reading the annie e casey foundation 2013

“Early Warning Confirmed: A Research Update on Third Grade Reading”The Annie E. Casey Foundation, 2013

Nearly 75% of fourth graders who scored at the low end of the NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) in 2011 were from low-income families.

“Children who do not read proficiently by the end of the third grade are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma than proficient readers.”

The compassionate instinct james rilling and gregory berens

“The Compassionate Instinct”James Rilling and Gregory Berens

When children practice protective and compassionate instincts, the brain is stimulated in areas that turn on the same responses as when we receive rewards or experience pleasure. Helping others gives the same pleasure in children as gratifying a personal desire.

Math avoidance r hembree

“Math Avoidance”R. Hembree

When otherwise capable students avoid the study of mathematics, their options regarding careers are reduced, eroding the country’s resource base in science and technology. The higher the level of math anxiety, the more likely a student is to avoid math-related tasks, courses, and careers. Data from this study demonstrated an “undeniable relationship”.

“The Disenfranchised Student”John Ogbu

Some Black youth develop an oppositional cultural identity. This is an internalization of their perceived discrimination, and is demonstrated through their music, clothing, and speech.

Building relationships eric schaps

“Building Relationships”Eric Schaps

A caring, supportive school environment positively affects students’ academic success, including their attitudes, motivation, engagement, goal-setting, desire to stay in school, drive toward graduation, grades, and their assessment scores. More are likely to develop positive attitudes about themselves and pro-social attitudes and behaviors toward others.

Building relationships john dewey

“Building Relationships”John Dewey

“An effective school is realized to the degree in which individuals form a group.”


A sense of belonging deci et al

“A Sense of Belonging”Deci,

  • When the sense of community is low, especially for students of color and low-income students, they may be placed at further disadvantage by the quality of their experience in school.

  • When schools fail to meet students’ need for belonging, the students become less motivated, more alienated, and poorer performers.

You talk about them

  • Students will care about schools that care about them.

  • Satisfying racial and emotional needs of students prepare them to learn and increase their capacity to learn.

Senior reflections

Senior reflections

Tell us about being a 9th grader at HPHS:

“all in one hall…couldn’t wear what you wanted…teachers seemed to care more…not as much technology….more fights that year…cliques from your middle school…it didn’t take long to get to know others…”

You talk about them

What changes have you seen during your time of being a student at Highland Park High School?

“Relationships with teachers get better…they care about your success…new teachers push us to be successful…school academics have gotten better…expectations are higher…more cameras in building…always being watched…like jail…”

You talk about them

What has been the worst part of being a Highland Park Student?

“Reputation…everyone makes it seem like we are bad kids, but we are not…no one else knows we have improved because they are not here…others think it’s just a basketball school…have had some bad classes…uniforms should only be for freshmen…don’t know about all of the programs that are available…”

What is the best part of being a Highland Park student?

“Teachers work with you before and after school…if teachers didn’t take the time out to help me, I wouldn’t have stayed in school and been on track to graduate…every day they inspire kids but they don’t know it…teachers listen to you and you can talk about anything…it feels like family…Dr. New is like our grandmother…administrators are cool, approachable, and know your name…we are not the ‘ghetto school’ everyone thought we were…no racial tensions—very integrated…everyone has a bond with someone…”

A fire in the sky student activism in topeka kansas and lawrence kansas in 1969 and 1970

A Fire in the Sky: Student Activism in Topeka, Kansas and Lawrence, Kansas in 1969 and 1970

“As long as societies evolve and new ideas emerge, students will have a reason to protest. The administrators who have the responsibilities of…modeling the process of beneficial interchanges within an academic system should learn…to listen to students’ concerns and cooperatively work toward resolution. It was apparent that the protesting students just wanted to be heard.”
