Kids Who Underachieve

Lawrence J. Greene, Author Simon & Schuster $16.45 (299p) ISBN 978-0-671-55235-0
California educator Greene, author of Kids Who Hate School, here addresses the situation of underachieving children. Since the learning deficits such children suffer are not sufficiently incapacitating to warrant formal remediation in school, these students often escape notice, establish a pattern of substandard achievement and may, as a result, become disabled, frustrated adults, the author notes. The prevalence of nonspecific learning problems in children is of increasing concern to parents and educators. Greene examines causes, presents scenarios and offers practical applications to help parents promote the emotional and academic growth of their children. (March 14)
