Summary "Whole examines the ways our schools' current framework mishandles mental health for both teachers and students. Through the use of research, community examples and expert opinions, this book asks readers to consider a new era of disruptive change. Whole introduces new concepts on how to approach mental health in schools such as: Treating schools as "field hospitals" to combine learning as healing, Redesigning the architecture of schools to reflect an open, inviting atmosphere, Considering teachers as high-performance athletes who deserve time for recovery and preparation for their workday, Connecting school leaders with their community and offering more transparency with the citizens who have a real stake in their school's success While in the past few decades technology has allowed for improvement to occur at a logarithmic pace, most businesses are still stuck improving linearly. Unfortunately, the system in which we view and work with mental health in schools is stuck in that same linear process that leaves new research and unique solutions to the wayside. The prevailing literature on education and mental health concludes student and teacher disengagement is the main issue when it comes to mental health problems in schools. However, new research discovered that this diagnosis was wrong from the beginning, so we now have a massive education reform industry spending immense resources to solve a problem that does not exist"-- Provided by publisher.
