The ASCD Whole Child Petition-Sign On!

Current educational practice and policy focus overwhelmingly on academic achievement, but this is only one element of student learning and development. A child is more than a grade on a test. Given what we now know about learning and development, we can do better and we can do more.

Sign the ASCD Whole Child petition to tell your state board of education that they must do more to educate the whole child. Because when we can do more, then we should do more. When your state has reached its goal, ASCD will deliver the petition to your state board of education. Help your state reach the goal by forwarding the petition on to stakeholders you know.
