Description

It’s easy to see a child’s education as a path determined by grades, test scores and extra curricular activities. But genuine learning is about so much more than the points schools tally. MindShift explores the future of education by investigating innovations and issues that are shaping how kids learn.

Emotional safety, trust, and relationships: this season, we investigate the intangible, and often overlooked, elements of academic success. You’ll hear how teacher home visits can help parents see themselves as a valued a partner in their child’s education; how far a public high school goes to develop an inclusive experience for the crucial transition to ninth grade; how parents and schools can address childhood trauma so it doesn’t become an obstacle to learning, and what parents and communities can do to help kids grow.

I'm glad it's had a positive impact but I'm also very sad because this is the exact opposite of how school counselors are intended to be utilized in a school setting. This is a purely responsive intervention program - school counselors that are responding are designed as preventative and school wide supports. This drop everything and run to help is not one that I believe is modeling school counseling best practices and research. Sometimes you have to do what needs to be done, but it's hard to hear colleagues talking about this program without cringing. Check out the role of the school counselor on the ASCA website.

I worked in the same type of Behavioral Program for awhile and was changed completely for the better. These kids are full of beauty and personality, yet need much support and many diverse resources, that the school systems lack because of careless state budgets being reduced or refocused elsewhere.... staying on the bright side, I cannot express the amount of gratitude and respect I have for these Teachers, Counselors, Assistants etc. who are dedicated to the positive development of their students🙌🏽🙏🏿🙌🏾 You all are Superhuman!!! Thank-you so very much for what you do!!! Keep up the good fight! And a few outlets that never failed were Outdoor Activities, The masterful game of teaching them Chess and the magical benefits of Art! 🙌🏽🙏🏿🙌🏾👏🏾✌️🏽 All thanks and praise!
