Removing Non-Academic Barriers in Urban Schools: School-Linked Social Services
Muñoz, Marco A.; Owens, Deborah; Bartlett, Carol
Planning and Changing, v46 n1-2 p71-91 2015
Current societal demands have increased the role of schools. The Family Resource and Youth Services Centers (FRYSC) seek to link students, families, and communities, using the school as the nexus for much needed services. The FRYSC offer a myriad of interventions aimed at removing non-academic barriers that hinder academic success for students placed at risk. This article uses qualitative case study methodology to examine school-linked social services in a large urban district's middle schools.
