A new report by the National Academies of Science suggests changes in education to boost the academic potential of secondary students, including:

• Teachers should provide "culturally sensitive" classrooms, which may help prevent stereotype threats that can interfere with students' performance and connection to school.

• Schools should, in addition to basic content, help students learn "practical knowledge and nonacademic skills, such as decisionmaking, adaptability, and psychosocial skills."

• Schools and communities should work to support students' mental and physical health.
