Schools and the Health of Children: Protecting Our Future.
Kronenfeld, Jennie Jacobs
This book defines key issues in the debate over the role of schools in the health of children, outlining the history of school health programs and discussing the contemporary issue of school health care delivery. Health needs are increasingly being met by the major social institution in U.S. society that deals with the needs of children--the public school system. The book suggests that the health needs of children cannot be completely separated from the welfare needs of children. The chapters are: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "History of Child Health and School Health Programs: Background and Current Roles of School Health Programs"; (3) "Health Status of Children: Past and Present"; (4) "Models of School Health Delivery: The Growth of School-Based Clinics and Centers"; (5)"Experiences in Arizona: The Development of New Clinics in a State with a Managed-Care Medicaid System"; and (6) "The Need To Protect the Future: The Impact of Changes in Welfare and Health Policies and Linkages with School Health Issues." (Contains approximately 220 references.) (SM)
