Open Access Graduate Research Paper
At-risk students might be an undefinable group. There is; however, a greater consensus of the characteristics and significance this group plays toward our society as stated by Research for Better Schools (1989). McCann and Austin (1988) maintain that you must differentiate among three sets of definitions. The primary problem is in reference to students "at risk" of not achieving the goal of education which is graduation. These students are perceived as not being able to acquire knowledge or skills that would allow them to become productive members of American society.
