The Total Child Needs Our Total Attention!
AASA believes it’s time to get back to the basics of supporting the total child — from physical and mental health to the development of fundamental, lifelong learning skills. Only when children have support for all their needs will schools have a real chance of helping every student master required education concepts and skills. Through the Educating the Total Child advocacy campaign, AASA members are committed to creating the conditions necessary for all students to become successful, lifelong learners. The campaign addresses three key factors that determine children’s academic achievement:
The campaign supports the 2011 AASA Legislative Agenda, which calls for a refocusing of the federal role in education on low-income and minority children. Focusing federal dollars where they are needed most — on schools serving children of poverty — significantly increases the chances that those dollars will help to close the achievement gap.
