Description

There is no such thing as a "classic underachiever." Students (and their reasons for underachieving) are influenced by a wide range of factors, including self-image, self-concept, social-emotional relationships, and the amount of dignity teachers afford their students. Smart, underachieving students need the reassurance that they are capable, valuable, and worth listening to despite their low academic performance. If these students‘who are otherwise academically capable‘don't feel they are getting respect from those in charge of their learning, then the desire to conform and achieve is minimized.
