About the Author:

Dr. William H. Warring has spent 45 award-winning years injecting productive relevancy into both business and educational settings. His efforts in both professions have received local, county, and state-wide recognitions. Along with his wife, ten children...and so far, 15 grandchildren, he lives in the San Francisco Bay Area where he writes and conducts educational research.

Review:

Warring’s observations on continuation schools—alternative high school pathways for students not thriving in comprehensive high school settings—are based on his experiences as a continuation school teacher and educational consultant in California. The reform of these schools is desperately needed; in some large urban school districts in California, less than 50 percent of the students graduate from high school. Descriptions of the historical development of these schools and the challenges current students face lead to a discussion of their functions as safety nets, safety valves, or dumping grounds. Warring calls on using a resiliency-based paradigm to develop learners’ self-cognitive practices, self-efficacy, resiliency, and hope. He also discusses strategies for reducing faculty and community members’ resistance to change. School faculty should increase the quality of their interpersonal relationships with students, improve self-perceptions of all community members, promote school-wide adaptive mental practice, and increase opportunities for students to participate in school-sponsored and out-of-school extracurricular activities. . . .Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. (CHOICE)

This book warrants a place on the book shelf of anyone seeking to make and embrace changes that ensure all students receive the best possible education regardless of what school they attend. (Jessie Fuller, English/Language Arts and EXCEL teacher, Orange Grove (continuation) High School, CA)

Finally, a book that tells all about reforming continuation schools and what most traditional high schools are missing. From Risk to Resiliency addresses serious problems facing alternative schools, with hard data, great examples, and simple stories involving everyday occurrences in continuation schools everywhere. Dr. Warring addresses concerns surrounding our continuation students with compassion and respect showing strong concern for the well-being of adolescents living among adverse conditions. (Angel Rivera, professor of educational leadership, California State University, Monterey Bay, Member of the Board of Directors, California Continuation Educators Association)

From Risk to Resiliency is a powerful resource providing vital continuation education reform evidence for ALL educational program developers. This book navigates educators through the facts surrounding continuation schools, their roadblocks, perceptions, myths, strategies, and more.This book's topics serve as springboards from which educators can plunge forward, discovering deeper means of benefiting continuation students. (Mike Ilic, EdD, president, California Continuation Educators Association (CCEA), director of student services, Corona Norco Unified School district, Norco, California)

An excellent source for summarizing the purpose and challenges continuation schools encounter on a daily basis.This book moves from struggles encountered by continuation schools to effective means for affecting their changes. This book is written in an easy-to-read format that includes anecdotes to clarify evidence-based supports necessary for effective school change. The conclusion addresses a much needed description for supporting and developing resiliency in students as well as schools. (Darrel Avilla, principal,Del Valle Continuation High School: a California model school, Livermore, CA)

Dr. Warring's work profoundly demonstrates the delicate balance necessary in supporting the diverse needs of students growing up in adverse environments. Dr. Warring emphasizes the rarity of safety net schools and their value throughout alternative school settings. (Carlie Wiedmeier, English/Language Arts teacher, Del Valle (continuation) High School: a California model school, Livermore, CA)
