The article reports on the strategies made by the educators to improve the performance of the students. It cites that one of the challenges of the schools is that many students have not passed the academic standards set by the schools. Thus, educators have carried out various teaching methods and conduct remedial classes. Some of the implementations have been successful in their pursuit of improving the performance of the students while some are not. In this article, it is being suggested redefining the classification of at risk students. Such method is helpful to properly teach students.
