CEA President Highlights Need to Focus on the Whole Child
The Connecticut Network recently hosted a live, televised town hall meeting titled, Moving from Tragedy to Action: The Power of Community. Experts and concerned state residents discussed ways for communities to come together after tragedies such as Sandy Hook.
CEA President Sheila Cohen told moderator Diane Smith that schools need to expand their focus. Cohen said that while teaching core subject matter is certainly important, “it is just as important to look at the behavioral, the social, the psychological, and the physical health and safety of our children.”
