Academic Support and Tutoring — A Strategy Brief

from University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Students who fail math or English in eighth-grade are 75% more likely to drop out of high school than their peers. These concerns have become more prevalent with the advent of the standards and accountability movement seeking to make course work more intellectually demanding. With these increases, there is a clear need to develop and provide students with extra help and support in order to succeed in school. Schools offering extra help and support, especially in the early stages of a student’s education, can guide at-risk youth on the path towards academic success, diminish the likelihood of behavior problems, and increase the likelihood of high school graduation (Balfanz, Herzog, & Mac Iver, 2007).
