When Students Disengage in Middle School: Robert Jackson





At-Risk & Struggling Students Keynoter Robert Jackson says students who drop out of school mentally in middle school end up dropping out literally by high school — and often find themselves in jail.

Watch Robert Jackson discuss the cycle that often happens to students who disengage in middle school.

Author of the No More Excuses curriculum, Robert will present a keynote session entitled Building Cultural Awareness & Effective Communication with Staff and Students in Atlanta. Additionally, he will present a breakout session entitled Strategies & Solutions for Educating Black/ Latino Males.

The At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference focuses on evidence-based programs and strategies that educators can use to prevent dropouts and to help students experience success in school. More than 1.2 million students in the United States and Canada drop out of high school each year (with the percentages skewed toward males, low-income and minority students). Millions more are considered at-risk because they exhibit ongoing disciplinary problems, impulsive behavior, truancy issues and have become frustrated or disengaged. The long-term cost of failing to engage these students is tremendous, since they are much less likely to transition successfully into adulthood and to achieve economic self-sufficiency. Join us in Atlanta to gain valuable insights and to explore practical ways to help this critical portion of your school’s population.
