Something is terribly wrong withour schools. How did a place that should be a sanctuary for kids becomes asource of fear and intimidation? What has happened? In CreatingEmotionally Safe Schools, Jane Bluesteinoffers a plan to return schools to havens of nurturing and learning. Sheexamines environmental, historical, developmental, psychological, sociological,interpersonal, instructional and administrative factors that contribute to theemotional climate of an educational institution. This is a comprehensive view ofwhat makes a school feel the way it feels, and what we can do to make it feelsafe for every child-and every adult-who walks through its doors. Emotional safety has manydimensions, such as: the impact of the family and early development, childhoodstress and coping, the changing role of the school, acceptance and emotionalsupport, respect and belonging, temperament and labels, gangs and violence,instructional strategies, learning styles and multiple intelligences, teachertraining and support, and the inherent need for a sense of community. The message Jane Bluestein brings ispositive: information, programs and solutions are available that can ultimatelymake our schools inviting, inspiring, and, yes-safe.
