Hidden Dangers identifies the roadblocks that contribute to failing schools. These subtle school issues appear to unintentionally reinforce an increase in school related violence, diagnosis of learning disabilities, ADHD, depression, and other behavioral and emotional problems, and meager attainment of basic skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. By developing a strong foundation of the needs for a healthy school climate and challenging and changing faulty assumptions, attitudes, beliefs, policies, and practices that guide failing schools, the author deftly offers a solution for changing failing schools into thriving schools.This book is the culmination of years of solid teaching, testing, and counseling experience combined with a well-researched perspective. It is helpful for all educators, psychologists, parents, coaches, and all those working with children; even for the children who are struggling in failing schools. Hidden Dangers: Subtle Signs of Failing Schools guides us toward developing balanced schools where children learn and like to be, and where professionals can take pride in doing their best work and ultimately have a very positive impact on our society as whole.
