Addressing Barriers to Learning. Volume 15, Number 3. Summer 2010
Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA
In May, Congresswoman Judy Chu issued a report entitled: "Strengthening Our Schools: A New Framework and Principles for Revising School Improvement Grants." Rather than the usual limited two-component blueprint framework that focuses only on instruction and management/governance, Representative Chu's report adopts a three-component framework. This third component encompasses learning supports directly designed to remove barriers to student success and is presented as a primary and essential component of school improvement. Concerns related to mental health in schools are fully embedded in this component. This paper is an excerpt from Congresswoman Chu's report. This is followed by (1) a brief overview about moving from a two- to a three-Component approach for school improvement, (2) a commentary on the report, and (3) an illustration of what learning supports in the classroom and schoolwide can look like. We end this issue with what's new from the Center. (Contains 2 exhibits.)
