Promoting a respectful school environment, encouraging participation, and establishing disciplinary structure may help children from military families improve academic performance, a report suggests.
The study, published by the Baltimore-based Military Child Initiative, found that children in military families are at risk socially and academically because they are more likely to change schools frequently. The report encourages teachers to create a sense of community in the classroom to help lower dropout and class-cutting rates among transient students. Research for the study included interviews with military children and parents as well as teachers and school administrators.
