Abstract

“These children are called at-risk children. Many of these children end up in what are called Alternative schools. Alternative schools are primarily used as a substitute for traditional schools when a student is not succeeding in the traditional schooling environment. Many times, alternative school as used as a last resort for children who have misbehaved either in school or in conflict with the law” (ALTERNATIVE SCHOOLING: THE NEED TO IMPROVE ALTERNATIVE SCHOOLS TO ACCOMMODATE THE POPULATION THEY SERVE, Kayla Colson). My research concluded that there is a plethora of both benefits and challenges of teaching at and attending an alternative school. The purpose of this research synthesis is to explore the underling difficulties and advantages of alternative schooling. Teaching models are continuously evolving, aligning with what new generations of students demand from their education. Beyond the knowledge they acquire are the skills, tools, experiences, and emotional intelligence that have assumed great importance in preparing them for their adult lives. These alternative methods provoke us to question whether the methods that continue to be used in schools meet the educational needs that this new era brings or whether it could be time for change or adaptation. This research show that there is a plethora of challenges (e.g., new curriculum, behavioral reconstruction, and the changing learning environment) that coincide with alternative education. Including the understanding of the new curriculum, behavioral reconstruction, and the changing of the learning environment. This study allows other to see through the lens of teaching and attending alternative school. This is seen through the study and analyzation of the conducting of alternative schooling.
