How can education in the United States be improved?
Increase provision of mental health services as an on-campus After-School Program to increase accessibility, minimize loss of instruction time, and potentially increase acquisition of services by those who need them. (See Dallas ISD program).
Include mandatory education regarding personal finance and citizenship.
Limiting the use of smart phones in the classroom setting can go a long way to improving student engagement, prevent cheating and improve the student/teacher relationship.
Add universal SEL screening to provide Tiered services to those who need it when they need it. Identify students early and provide the required intervention early.
