Crossing a Broad Gray Line to Help Children
Allen, Megan M.
Phi Delta Kappan, v96 n4 p19-21 Dec 2014-Jan 2015
Helping students with mental health issues sometimes presents teachers with the dilemma of following the letter of school rules or doing what is best for the child. One teacher tells her story of crossing such lines, but only in service to children. She also outlines what teachers can and should do to help students who need mental health services.
