Craig Boykin: Change is Possible!

Posted on

Not every PhD candidate started his or her academic career successfully.  Craig Boykin took a “different route.”

Watch Craig Boykin describe his path to success.

Acclaimed speaker and author of several books, Craig will present a keynote session entitled Make Education Count at the At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference in Atlanta.

The At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference focuses on evidence-based programs and strategies that educators can use to prevent dropouts and to help students experience success in school. More than 1.2 million students in the United States and Canada drop out of high school each year (with the percentages skewed toward males, low-income and minority students). Millions more are considered at-risk because they exhibit ongoing disciplinary problems, impulsive behavior, truancy issues and have become frustrated or disengaged. The long-term cost of failing to engage these students is tremendous, since they are much less likely to transition successfully into adulthood and to achieve economic self-sufficiency. Join us in Atlanta to gain valuable insights and to explore practical ways to help this critical portion of your school’s population. REGISTER NOW!
