Title:Promoting a systematic focus on learning supports to address barriers to learning and teaching
Organization:Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA
Short Description:This policy analysis report focuses on how learning supports can be enhanced in the reauthorized No Child Left Behing law. The analysis builds on several previous reports clarifying critical gaps in school improvement policy and planning and how to fill them.
Annotation:This policy analysis report focuses on how learning supports can be enhanced in the reauthorized No Child Left Behing law. The analysis builds on several previous reports clarifying critical gaps in school improvement policy and planning and how to fill them. The intent is to enhance effectiveness in addressing the factors that interfere with a great many students succeeding at school. The emphasis is on fully integrating the development of a comprehensive system of learning supports as an essential component in school improvement efforts. Failure to develop such a system is seen as contributing to the perpetuation of achievement gaps and dropout rates and as playing a major role in the plateauing of achievement gains.
