Abstract: This paper reviews some of the concerns that have been raised about the educational system during the past several decades. Many of these concerns focus on the need for students, especially at-risk students, to take greater responsibility for and to be more actively involved in their education. An educational program which promotes self-directed learning and student responsibility, as well as skill development, is presented. Using a Descriptive Psychology perspective not only illuminates the elements, processes and outcomes of this program, but helps to understand why the program is successful when done well and, also, how it can go wrong.
