Healing School Systems

Describes the experiences of three educational systems that are striving to address the adversity that affects their school communities. This brief is based on lessons learned from conversations with state and district leaders, who shared their insights on how they are recognizing the presence of chronic stress and trauma in their staff members and students; interrogating their systems, policies, and practices; and providing resources to the teaching workforce, so educators can both be healers for students and receive healing support for themselves.
