Social Services Plan for Schools can work

The Journal editors wrote a short piece, subscription required, about health centers, mentoring and "other basic services" being offered at two middle school sites.

What a great step forward.

I have written a couple of pieces on synergy at successful schools. An essential component of the synergy is the community, obviously. Anything that can be done to draw neighbors into the school, to make them a part of the school, and to begin to make them care personally about the success of their neighborhood school; will yield positive results.

It is a virtual certainty.

A tip of the hat to whomever actually set this all up.
