High School Improvement
High schools should establish more orderly environments and do a better job preparing students for life after high school, particularly for youths from low-income families, according to a research brief by the National High School Center.
The brief outlines five challenges faced by high schools and ways to keep students engaged and on the path to graduation.
The National High School Center is funded by the U.S. Department of Education and housed at the American Institutes for Research, based in Washington.
