Chief Judge Teske-Emotional Baggage Drags Down Many Poor Children

http://jjie.org/op-ed-emotional-baggage-drags-down-many-poor-children/

An excellent, most informative article

Excerpt......PLEASE READ AND SHARE "FULL" ARTICLE

"A child can’t be responsive to a teacher’s instruction with a head full of anxiety, stress, fear and pain. In their desire to survive, they fight, freeze or take flight — the “dumbed-down” description of trauma symptoms.
Yet many still label them “bad seeds” and respond with punishments. They treat the symptom, but never the cause........."

My personal thanks to Judge Teske and the Juvenile Justice Exchange for this very important article
