Advocacy for Child Wellness in High-Poverty Environments
Mullen, Carol A.
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v50 n4 p157-163 2014
Child wellness needs to be understood holistically so that children and youth from high-poverty environments can succeed in schooling and life. Teachers who foster advocacy in themselves are well equipped to teach students to take ownership of their own well-being. Such advocacy can enrich the classroom curriculum and mitigate the negative effects of disadvantaged environments and segregated educational systems.
