What is your perception of at-risk students? A rural African-American man? A legally blind Georgia girl? A poor Pakistani immigrant? Rosa Aronson tells the stories of these and four other students, uncovering how very different at-risk achievers have overcome the odds stacked against them. Through seven narratives, Aronson analyzes their collective experiences. She offers recommendations for change in today's educational system based upon their journeys and the research of other overcomers such as Richard Rodriguez and Victor Frankl. A powerful book, At-Risk Students Defy the Odds brings to light the issues of poverty and race that affect education today, and provides hope for change.
