Course Description

CEU Course Description

According to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, students must feel safe before they are able to learn. They also need the sheer energy it takes to concentrate on increasingly-complex subject matter and to perform on a daily basis. Logically, therefore, we need to start considering both health and safety as non-negotiable prerequisites of a successful education. Studies back this up, showing us with hard data that prioritizing health and safety initiatives is correlated with happier, more productive students—and even higher grades and other markers of success. In this course, we’ll discuss just why health and safety is so integral in the school experience. We’ll also talk about the disparity between where we are and where we should be, and brainstorm practical ways to improve our schools’ health and safety initiatives.
