All Students Must Thrive
So how can we ensure that all students thrive? By building and sustaining the critical wellness approach shared in this book. It brings together three frameworks relevant for equity in schools – wellness, critical pedagogy, and critical race theory. Offering a multilayered approach to supporting students and their families holistically, this book helps every educator nurture the social emotional wellness that is essential for all students to thrive.
Are you ready to transform today’s schools into tomorrow’s hubs of learning? Whether you are an educator in a small rural, large urban, or midsize suburban district – whether the student population is largely socioeconomically disadvantaged, racially segregated, or a balanced mosaic from diverse backgrounds – this book will help you understand how to demonstrate to students that they do matter, that their wellness is essential, and that they can thrive in their quest to learn.
So be bold. Be courageous. Be reflective and dedicate yourself to improving leadership, practice, policy and research that benefits our students.
