New Briefs Connect School Climate to Bullying, Dropouts, More

| No comments

Educators and policymakers can learn more about school climate research, measuring school climate, the relationship between school climate and bullying, and climate and dropout prevention through a set of 11 new briefs published by the National School Climate Center.

The briefs, the National School Climate Center says, present the latest in research and best practice for effective school climate reform from experts at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, the National Dropout Prevention Center, and Special Olympics Project UNIFY, among others.

The 11 issues in this set of practice briefs are based on the climate center's work with the entire academic community—teachers, staff, school-based mental health professionals, students and parents—to improve the climate for learning, the organization said.
