One in particular focuses on a program that deals with disruptive students in schools. I recommend this program, since there are children who are displaying disruptive behavior.

    This research study provides an outline of the potential causes of school drop-outs. One part in particular mentions poor academic achievement. This has lead to successful alternative education.
