With Health and Justice for All

Many things in a student’s life can affect his or her ability to learn and graduate. For example, some children and teens are confronted with unmanaged chronic ailments, or violence, and don’t feel safe at school or in their communities. Even the best teachers and schools cannot compensate for illness, fear or distress. School-based health centers have the capacity to benefit all students in a school by addressing many of these barriers to learning.

APHA works with partners and members on the health and social factors that influence educational success and decrease school dropout. A core focus of this work is expanding the impact of school-based health care as a means to improve educational success and prevent high school dropout.

To read more about the expanded role for school-based health centers, visit the Center for School, Health and Education website.
