Editorial Reviews

Minnie E. Doss
This is a requisite resource for educators and administrators who aspire to effect significant change in interventions designed for at-risk students.
Brian D. Mendler
In At-Risk Students: Transforming Student Behavior, Ms. Beach presents the brutal facts about the limited understanding and resources available to help the majority of students at risk. Her compelling account of her own son’s high-risk behaviors further propels the urgency for schools to look at their current policies and implement the critical reforms needed for schools to be safe and students to become successful.
Mary Young Griffin
This book speaks from intellect and spirit simultaneously. Through her personal journey as the mother of an at-risk youth, Ms. Beach has captured the heart-wrenching challenges that educators of at-risk students are confronted with daily, and the impact and demands these challenges force upon the family, school, and community. Her unprecedented love, courage, and wisdom drive the spirit of this invaluable contribution to the future of education and the future of all learners.
Victoria Jones
At-Risk Students: Transforming Student Behavior challenges every school leader to recognize that one size does not fit all when working with at-risk students. It makes us take a hard look at what works and what doesn't, allowing us to explore and develop plans to best help at-risk students succeed.
