The authors are very clear in their stance that the "one size fits all" model of school is no longer working for lots of students, particularly boys . . . It's a scary time out there for education, and yet, Helping Boys Succeed in School gave me some hope that there are things we can do to turn the tides for our boys. --Kara Thompson, A Mom's View of ADHD
National education leaders, Rich Weinfeld and Terry Neu, Ph.D., know firsthand that boys need special attention, accommodations, and advocacy in order to succeed in school. The authors delve into the causes and solutions to the problems boys face in school. Weinfeld was instrumental in coordinating the Montgomery County, MD, gifted and learning disabled program, which served many boys who were failing in their previous school experiences and provided these boys with the tools and confidence they needed to succeed. Neu, who currently serves as an assistant professor of education at Sacred Heart University, previously served as the coordinator of Project High Hopes, which pairs students with learning disabilities with mentors. Both authors are the fathers, coaches, and teachers of boys.
