At-Risk and High-Needs Students

Numerous programs aim to help at-risk and high-needs students in school. They range from special education programs and mentoring to preventing teen pregnancy and after-school and summer programs. Abt uses rigorous methodologies to assess which programs work. Our evaluations of the effectiveness of these and other programs and policies help determine which programs ones serve students best and how to fix those that don’t move the needle.
