Research suggests that more than half of high school student graduates are not academically prepared for college, yet they do not have significant learning disabilities preventing them from succeeding in a traditional classroom setting. This timeless bestseller, now in its third edition and updated with new data, recommendations, and observations explores the choices available to these students beyond traditional four-year colleges.
Illustrating options that are more accessible and carry a much higher probability of student success, this resource:
Dispels the "One Way to Win" myth
Presents "Other Ways to Win" not requiring a four-year college degree
Provides benefits for students with alternate forms of post-high school education
All teens deserve to succeed regardless of the post-secondary educational path they take. Other Ways to Win can help to make it happen.
"This is the first book I've read that concentrates on the academic middle who may not want to go to college or who may want to go but may struggle to succeed. Gray and Herr have provided educators and parents a resource full of alternative 'ways to win.' "
"The authors demonstrate an effective and legitimate working knowledge of a real high school and national dilemma and write skillfully and engagingly about the dilemma."
