Psychological Issues that Impact Learning and Safety
Research indicates that over one million students in the U.S. come to school from homes and/or communities where they have experienced maltreatment and been exposed to violence.

The links in this section provide practical suggestions on ways to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of these high risk students.
