After introducing the topic of health services within the educational context, the brief discusses coordinated school health programs, defining such programs and offering examples of the programs in practice. The brief then discusses health education and risk behaviors, providing a sidebar on adolescents and risk behaviors. Also discussed are school-based health centers, funding these centers, and integrated service networks. The final two sections of the brief discuss challenges to health in education, namely the balancing of support services with the development of quality education, and the boundaries of schools' responsibilities to students.
