New Paper: Sharing Responsibility for the Whole Child

Posted by on June 4, 2007

The Coalition for Community Schools has released a paper, All Together Now: Sharing Responsibility for the Whole Child. This paper was commissioned and published by the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) as part of their work around the concept of supporting the Whole Child. As part of its work on the Whole Child, ASCD has convened a Commission that includes leading thinkers, researchers, and practitioners from a variety of sectors to address successful student learning and recast the current narrow focus of schools.

The Commission will issue policy and practice recommendations to improve educational excellence and equity and advance the goal of student success for each learner. We are hopeful that the commission will include recommendations in support of community schools as a vehicle for creating the conditions in which the Whole Child thrives.
