Betsy DeVos Is Just Plain Wrong

In DeVos' model, parents should be able to choose if a child attending a 'failing' school can allow the child to attend a religious school or a private school. But what if the parent has a gender questioning child or a developmentally challenged child and the schools available either reject them or do not serve them because they don't have to. This is not a new issue but it is still a problematic one. Choice for all children really belongs only to some.   …

Cyberbullying Challenges Mental Health in Our Schools

Guest blogger J.M. Myers, M.D. writes:

How ironic that during this month, May, Mental Health Month, we have seen videos of torture, murder, rape, and threats widely distributed on social media. In fact, these Internet sites had previously publicized that they wanted live action.

All this though represents only the most extreme actions of a few who have posted this material. I would maintain that day to day less publicized but very insidious cybermedia postings have introduced…

Leaders as Problem Finders

In the frenzy of the day, with a 'the buck stops here' attitude, leaders can be caught in the 'solutions trap'.  There is graffiti in a bathroom so lock the bathroom. There are students who leave the building during the day so lock the doors preventing them from re-entering without being found out. There are too many students arriving late to class so place more adults in the hall to hurry the students along. There are growing numbers of students being disrespectful so write a new code…

Good News About Mental Health in Our Schools

May is mental health month.There is an intersection of mental health for children with their experience in the educational system.  Now it would be easy enough to explore the issues for the 14% of children who have definable mental health diagnoses and are significantly symptomatic. Their school function is impacted at the cognitive, social, emotional, and behavioral levels. However, I thought we might turn to educational changes that have massively impacted the mental health of…

Leaders, Listen to the Opposition

Now is a good time to think about how people are addressed and included when decisions are being made. How many decisions are made that leave dissenters behind? Think it takes too much time and energy to pay attention to those who are not supportive of you or your decisions?  How much time does it take to deal with the aftermath when their dissatisfaction translates into behaviors?  In a faculty when a change is made and not everyone was on board, doesn't it take time and energy to…
