New Directions in Enhancing Educational Results: Policymakers' Guide to Restructuring Student Support Resources To Better Address Barriers to Learning. Guidebook.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
The purpose of this guidebook is to clarify why policymakers should expand the focus of school reform to encompass a reframing and restructuring of education support programs and services and to offer some guidance on how to go about doing so. Section 1 deals with the need to restructure support services and offers ideas for new directions. Throughout, the emphasis is on reframing how schools think about addressing barriers to learning and on systemic reforms for establishing comprehensive, multifaceted approaches to ameliorate problems. Section 2 discusses how to restructure such programs effectively and then scale them up. Eight appendixes expand on key matters and contain tools to aid those who undertake the proposed reforms, including a list of potential funding sources. (Contains approximately 175 references.) (SLD)
