Trauma-Informed Education Practices

Children bring to school whatever they are going through at home. Educators who can recognize trauma and help children feel safe and loved will see them thrive. Without that, children can fall behind in class or develop behavior harmful to themselves or others. Establishing trauma-informed education practices is an essential piece of breaking the school to prison pipeline. In this episode, we talk with Art McCoy, Ph.D., the Superintendent of the Jennings School District in St. Louis County, about how his district approaches this issue.
