Garrett Soldiers describes the birth of a behavioral intervention program at Garrett Middle School in Cobb County, Georgia to increase the success of at-risk male students. Also, the book embodies the dissertational study , “The Effectiveness of the WhyTry Program with Conduct Disordered Students” by Dr. Yolande Minor. The study showed that the more positive perception and the increased amount of time commitment by facilitators of the WhyTry program contributed to the decreasing number of males and females being expelled from school. Also, the independent variables were close to being significant in the decrease number of students involved in the juvenile court system. Furthermore, there was a reduction in the amount of students involved with aggression and the destruction of property.
