Beyond the Health Room.
Council of Chief State School Officers, Washington, DC. Resource Center on Educational Equity.
Because good health and good learning go hand-in-hand, school health issues today are being discussed in the context of school reform. State education agencies can be catalysts to help communities make the critical link between health and education and move beyond the confines of the health room to discuss the role of schools in meeting the health needs of young people. The chapters in this guide, written for chief state school officers and their health staffs, include: "Putting Health Programs in the School Context"; "Looking at the Health Needs of Children & Youth"; and "Understanding the Characteristics & Components of Comprehensive School Health Programs." Chapter 4, "Addressing HIV/AIDS Through School Strategies & Programs," gives an overview of specific programs, including information on how to contact program personnel. Seventy-eight references are listed. (IAH)
