Alternative schools provide pathway for disengaged students


A recent study conducted by researchers from the University of Queensland, Griffith University and the Youth Affairs Network of Queensland explored the ways in which alternative schools can benefit students who have disengaged from mainstream education.

The report entitled ‘Engaging Students in Engaging Schools: lessons from Queensland’s alternative education‘ found that alternative schools provide more support to students, such as cultural practices.

It also shows that the traditional educational system can benefit from practices of alternative schools to further engage students in education.
