Man-Made Disaster Undermines Impoverished School District: The Flint Water Crisis
Bravender, Marlena; Walling, Caryl
eJEP: eJournal of Education Policy, Spr 2017
In seeking an avenue to save money, an urban city made a choice to alter the drinking water for its residents and created a crisis, which all community stakeholders were unprepared to address. The Flint water crisis has been given national attention by celebrities and politicians, but the long-term issues related to families, children, and educational resources are far from being resolved. Resources have been provided to the community health and education providers, but more assistance is needed and will continue to be required for decades to come. Environmental hazards such as lead poisoning play a critical role in child development. It serves as a wake-up call to national and international communities to examine the water sources available to children.
