Abstract:There are four specific recommendations that this researcher believes should be in place to help reduce the number of students placed at risk for school failure from falling further behind: first, the alternative and regular schools must have flexibility within the curriculum and overall programming; secondly, more emphasis should be placed on students being mainstreamed back into their home schools; thirdly, more structural programming centered around holistic education must be enacted at both educational environments; and lastly, teaching students inner discipline to help them self-correct their conduct by learning how to stop, think, and then respond to circumstances.
