Are you familiar with the five principles of the Whole Child Compact? What existing policies and practices support the goal of healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged children? Where does policy and practice fall short of the whole child mission?
The latest issue of InfoBrief reviews the objectives of ASCD’s whole child initiative, promising practices from around the world, and the immense work left to be done.
Also, Wholechildeducation.org posts weekly highlights from the campaign, including personal stories and examples of programs that embody the whole child agenda. This week, learn about the Los Angeles County Museum’s work with local schools to support arts education.
