Nurturing Students' Climb to Success: Why Engagement and Motivation Matter

An Education Week Special Report

How students feel about school has high-stakes implications for the rest of their lives. The hallmarks of a disengaged student are well-known—poor attendance, low achievement, and too often, giving up on school completely.

In this report, Education Week takes an expansive look at student engagement and motivation and a range of strategies schools, educators, advocates, and parents are using to help students get—and stay—vested in their learning. In the resulting stories, it's clear that relationships are the linchpin.
