The official school drop-out figure in the US in recent years has been 25 per cent of the cohort. Estimates from large cities are often double these rates, and in some areas 60 per cent or worse. This text focuses on this problem in US schools, but from an unusual perspective. It is a study gained from in-depth interviews of 100 "stop-outs" - that is, those who dropped out but then decided to return to school. Four basic questions are posed by this text: who drops out?; why did they drop out?; what caused them to return?; and what intervention policies can be formulated to prevent students dropping out in the first place? The answers provided by this text for the last question are intended to make it of particular interest to school administrators.

Throughout the world, students of color experience failure in school for a variety of very complex reasons. They often do not receive the proper encouragement from teachers, they may lack the motivation necessary to excel in an academic environment, they usually face a number of demographic, socioeconomic and cultural factors that work against them, or their academic performance may not be measured properly. With contributions from scholars living in the U.S. and abroad, The Academic Achievement of Minority Students is a comprehensive work that provides fresh insights and practical strategies for addressing these problems in order to enhance minority student performance in school. The papers in this volume collectively cover the many issues affecting minority students from kindergarten through post-secondary education including the instructional and nonacademic factors that promote achievement or lead to attrition. Most importantly, the authors offer valuable prescriptions for advancing the learning opportunities of all students in the future.

Professors Colker and Waterstone, and the eight contributors to discrete chapters of Special Education Advocacy, have collaborated to try to provide students and lawyers with the basic tools they need to be effective advocates in educational cases involving children with disabilities. Special Education Advocacy is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of special education advocates. By using examples and simulations based on real cases, the authors and contributors hope to illuminate the major principles that are important to successful advocacy on behalf of children with disabilities.
