Expanding School Improvement Policy to Better Address Barriers to Learning and Integrate Public Health Concerns
Adelman, Howard S.; Taylor, Linda
Policy Futures in Education, v9 n3 p431-446 2011
This article stresses that current school improvement policy in the USA marginalizes development of the type of system of student support necessary for enabling student success and well-being at school. Then we discuss how education policy can be expanded and operationalized to correct this deficiency. Finally, we explore the implications of the expanded policy for connecting overlapping public education and public health concerns. (Contains 3 notes and 8 figures.)
