I have added a link to this site to a pdf titled Promoting a Systematic Focus on Learning Supports to Address Barriers to Learning and Teaching. This is a Policy Brief, provided the UCLA Center for Mental Health in Schools.

For those leading non-school tutor/mentor programs who struggle to get attention in a funding environment that focuses so much attention and resources to curriculum, teachers, class size, principles, etc., this is a really important resource.

I've been looking for a source of leadership in this area, and after I read the PDF I followed the links to the UCLA web site at http://smhp.psych.ucla.edu/

Open the What's New section and follow the links to the Student Support Initiative. You'll find a national network and a wealth of resources that I hope you'll put to work in your own communities, and which I hope will lead to greater support for comprehensive, long-term, volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs.

After reading the article, I encourage you to share your own thoughts about it, and similar resources, in this discussion.

Here's another article that I think helps us  understand what works and does not work about the current No Child Left Behind approach to education policy:  http://www.hoover.org/publications/ednext/3367491.html

It's written by Richard F. Elmore, a professor of educational leadership at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a senior research fellow at the Consortium for Policy Research in Education.<!--endclickprintinclude-->
