Stress and the School Experience.
Chandler, Louis A.
Children today come to school with problems that are markedly different from those of only a generation ago. Because school is such a large part of a child's life, the school experience is a highly significant factor in the child's life-stress situation. Unfortunately, many of the current practices in the school, far from helping children to cope, actually serve to exacerbate the stress situation. This paper deals with the "fit" of child with school, as seen in the context of childhood stress and children's emotional well-being. The proper use of psychology in the schools is discussed, and some recommendations for structural change are made so that teachers can rely on the educational system to help them, and not act as an impediment, as they work to foster children's emotional development.
