Some of the factors causing academic underachievement are student lack of interest, parental lack of interest, lack of encouragement for intellectual pursuits, a value system at odds with that of the social environment, physical and mental disabilities, cognitive impairment and lack of educational support in the school environment.
Some research has been conducted on the efficacy of counseling-based intervention programs for academic underachievers. It is believed that with a combination of counseling and educational support, many underachieving students can excel. The behavior and motivation of students can improve, so that ultimately they perform well in the school environment. Through this approach, students have been able to unlearn bad behaviors and make positive goal-oriented decisions.
