About the Book :

Providing deep insights into understanding of the nature and magnitude of the problem of under-achievement in school children, this book tries to obtain base-line data regarding the prevalence of academic underachievement in schools. It identifies the factors, psychological and school-related, that contribute to achievement and underachivement. Further finding out underachievers in schools using composite criteria, it emphasizes the need for the services of school psychologists and counsellors. The perspectives of students, their parents and teachers have also been taken into account.
