Why your school should be implementing trauma-informed practices
from Education World
Troy is smart, but disrupts classes all day and is in detention at least once a week. He’s regularly the topic of disparaging talk among teachers and administrators, and is well-known by the attendance office for missing school. He mutters "I don't care" in response to the lectures he frequently receives. Ellie sits behind him in math, and in this class and throughout her day teachers get very little work or response. Juan, on the other hand, who is required to sit in the front, just can't stop talking and disrupting class. These three middle school students will often get extra attention in school, but won't succeed because the real reason for their behavior isn't addressed: trauma.
