Summary

Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning held the second of a proposed series of three roundtables on student diversity in November 1999. Three commissioned papers prepared by national experts were the basis for activities at the roundtable. Focusing on the unique needs of at-risk students, the papers detail current research and effective practices. They also challenge the reader to reflect on current policies and practices relative to the inclusion of at-risk students in the standards reform movement. This publication includes the commissioned papers and a summary of the roundtable proceedings. The papers are: (1) "Improving the Achievement of Marginalized Students of Color" (Geneva Gay); (2) "Immigrant Students and Standards-Based Reform: Examining Opportunities To Learn" (Pam McCollum); and (3) "The School District's Role in Helping High-Poverty Schools Become High Performing" (Douglas Mac Iver and Robert Balfanz). Each paper contains references. (SLD)
