about

Research convincingly shows that students who struggle perpetually in school often lack the social and emotional skills needed to succeed academically. Their families, communities, and churches have fallen short. Their peer groups often pull them in the wrong direction. Drawing on research and real-world experience, Hugh Price proposes a new school paradigm that places equal emphasis on adolescents’ academic and social development. By borrowing from the best of United States military education and training methods, Price argues, we can find out a lot about how young people learn and grow, particularly troubled teens and high school dropouts. Fostering responsible citizenship, community service, life-coping skills, health and hygiene, belonging, teamwork, interdependence, self-discipline, and accountability to oneself and others—this is what the U.S. military does well, even for young people who’ve been written off. Price urges the creation of a brand new type of public school, one devoted to the academic and social development of students who are laboring futilely in school and in life, schools whose mission it is to turn Strugglers Into Strivers.
