Abstract/ Summary

If anyone stops to ask their opinion, what do students say really matters in school? It's having a teacher ask how things are going and then actually stop and wait for a answer before disappearing down the hall. Simply put, it's having an adult who cares about them, values them as individuals, and sees them as more than a test taker or a seat warmer, says Russell Quaglia, director of the National Center for Student Aspirations.
