A Call to Duty: Educational Policy and School Reform Addressing the Needs of Children from Military Families
Esqueda, Monica Christina; Astor, Ron Avi; De Pedro, Kris M. Tunac
Educational Researcher, v41 n2 p65-70 Mar 2012
More than 90% of the nation's 1.2 million military children attend civilian-operated public schools. Education researchers, however, often overlook the educational experiences and needs of military children attending civilian-operated public schools (i.e., schools that are administered by and under the purview of local education agencies). This article is the first in an educational research journal to examine the intersections among state policy, school reform, and the educational experiences of military children. This article also highlights new data sources and funding opportunities for research on military students. (Contains 1 note.)
