Overcoming Student Apathy: Succeeding with All Learners provides a candid look into the hearts and minds of many of today's struggling learners. Frustrated teachers and administrators typically stop at labeling the symptoms shown by these students: apathetic, unmotivated, lazy. Overcoming Student Apathy clarifies the issues, while proposing solutions to move forward with each student.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Overcoming Student Apathy provides clarity of purpose and reinvigorated passion to educators by focusing on the power of relationships. The relationships between student and teacher, among students engaged in deep, connected learning, and within the learning environment are explored through new perspectives and possibilities. This book provides insight and hope to uplift educators by reminding them of why they teach and how their work changes lives every day. -- Ena Shelley, dean of college of education, Butler University
In a time where the success of all students, particularly those who struggle, is paramount and directly connected to not only the student's ultimate satisfaction and success in life beyond schooling, but also to the nation's economy and collective civic participation, Jeff Marshall offers amazingly keen insights into the types and characteristics of "at-riskness" that students possess and to which teachers and leaders are called to respond. His vignettes and compelling student characterizations accurately portray the "game of school," actions on behalf of students and educators that play out every day in America's schools. The overall message is that we can win the battle over student apathy if we are willing to examine the true root causes of both student and educator behaviors and biases and then seek viable and research based solutions in the way of supports, interventions, and choices- many of which our deep research and practice over decades at the Dropout Prevention Center and network found to impact the issue. Overcoming Student Apathy: Succeeding With All Learners is a welcomed resource for educators grappling with the issues of student apathy and lack of engagement. -- Beth P. Reynolds, Ph.D., executive director, National Dropout Prevention Center and Network
