This issue of the quarterly publication focuses on Fostering Success in School and Beyond for Students with Emotional/Behavioral Disorders. Editorial introduction notes that today's K-12 educators must effectively work with increasingly diverse populations in their classrooms, including educating students identified as having emotional/behavioral disorders (EBD) in the general education classrooms and ensuring their inclusion in all aspects of the school community. To effectively educate students with EBD there must be collaboration between all the instructional and administrative staff in the school to implement prevention and intervention efforts. Additionally, there must be a willingness on the part of teachers to explore new teaching methods that more actively engage students with EBD. Ongoing staff development and training are needed to update and maintain educator skills in working with students with EBD. Sufficient resources must be available at the school and district level to sustain programming.
