Best Practices for Educating Students Who Are Highly Mobility

Jeff Williams


The United States is trying to increase the academic performance in the educational system in order to be competitive in the world market. While this is happening, children are being left behind, “…most of whom reside in poor urban communities” (Biernat & Jax, 2000, p. 1). Researchers have found that “Students with nearly perfect attendance on average had reading scores 20 points higher than those who attended less than 84% of the time” (Hinz, E., Kapp, L., & Snapp, S. et al. 2003, p.142). This problem is a growing concern. Students are not meeting the national standards at increasing rates, especially students who are highly mobile. The best way to help students who are highly mobile reach the national standards is to inform general education teachers, more specifically, secondary general education teachers, how to help students reach academic standards. The most effective way to reach this goal is to inform general education teachers of the best practices needed for highly mobile students to reach standards.
