There will be students in all schools that are failing to achieve what is planned for them, or failing to reach the standard expected of them. If so – they are underachieving. This situation can be reversed or overcome by using good strategies to prevent this happening found in the recently published book by Dr Leonard Restall, which is especially suitable for teachers, students, and parents. It is based upon research and 40 years of teaching experience.
Details can be obtained from Dr Leonard Restall, email@example.com
