West Virginia expands a partnership that helps schools fight the opioid crisis — Is it enough?
from The Hechinger Report
When students put on their backpacks to come to school each day, they don't just bring textbooks — they bring their spunk and personalities, too. Sadly, some students also carry a heavier burden: parents suffering from opioid addiction. We know that ensuring long-term success in schools requires taking a holistic view of the many aspects of a child's life, not just what happens inside the classroom. For thousands of children in West Virginia, this means acknowledging that their parents are suffering from an opioid addiction.
