Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! You hit it out of the park! I had been an inner-city Philadelphia school teacher for many years (both school district & charter) and left feeling ineffective and frustrated for just the reason you stated (although I didn't have a name for it then). I am now back in school studying to be a social worker and having just completed a certificate program in trauma, I learned about ACEs and the impact on families and on children's learning.
It is my hope to return to schools, this time as a counselor, to work with children, their families, and their schools on this very issue - but first, there have to be counselors in our children's schools.
So, thank you for bringing to light this very important, very real elephant in the living room issue - one that cannot be solved by privatizing - or anything else until it is recognized for what it is - and addressed directly!
