"SCT worked very well for me in completing my continuing education credits in areas that interested me and were applicable to my job. I was more than impressed with the quality of the text books and the caliber of the assignments. The coursework was meaningful and special attention was given to the application of the material to the classroom. I never felt like an assignment was a waste of time. That is so important in our busy lives. SCT even worked with me to modify some assignments so that they would be more relevant to my position as a specialist. I recommend SCT without hesitation."

Helping Boys Succeed in School

Print Based Course Printed Course


Many parents and educators today are worried about the education of smart girls, especially in areas like math and science, but what about their male counterparts? According to a U.S. Census Bureau report (2004), 12% of boys drop out of high school, compared to 9% of girls. In addition, the current trend sees more girls enrolling in college than boys. Boys need to be given the tools they need to succeed in school, including strategies for channeling their interests, keeping them actively engaged, increasing their participation in humanities classes like language arts, and dealing with the unique social and emotional problems they face in school. This course combines field-tested strategies and advice with case studies of boys across the nation to give educators a strong guide for ensuring boys' success in school and the future.
