Mental health in public schools is a major concern. According to HHS, the figures usually indicated for diagnosable mental disorders suggest that between 12% and 22% of all youngsters under age 18 are in need of services for mental, emotional, or behavioral problems. The Center for Mental Health in Schools reports that the reality for many large urban schools is that well over 50% of their students manifest significant learning, behavior, and emotional problems. For a large proportion of these youngsters, the problems are rooted in the restricted opportunities and difficult living conditions associated with poverty.
We have two special guests in December: Dr. Sally Baas, President - National Association of School Psychologists who will discuss these challenges nationally. Our second guest is Irene Spence, the founding principal of Brooklyn Gardens Elementary School, a new school in East New York, Brooklyn. She has been working diligently to create partnerships with organizations to support children's social, emotional and academic needs. Join us at 2pm on December 18 for another amazing discussion!
Teresa Weatherall Neal has worked for GRPS for 35 years. She started out as a student worker as a teenager. She has worked in numerous capacities throughout the district including as an Administrative Assistant, Coordinator of Compliance, and Co-Director of Community and Student Service. Just prior to her appointment to Superintendent, she worked as the Assistant Superintendent of Community and Student Affairs for seven years.
She has a love for both the students of Grand Rapids and the city itself. She, herself, is a product of Grand Rapids. She comes from a large family with deep roots in the City. She is proud of her education in GRPS and will brag to anyone that she attended South Middle School and graduated from Creston High School.
In her State of the Schools Address, Superintendent Neal made a statement that seemed to resonate with many people in the District and in the community. She stated, “These are our students, our schools, and this is our City.” She truly believes this and is working, and has charged her staff to work, with that statement in mind
As we celebrate the 60 year anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education it appears that public schools are still segregated. 60 years ago laws were passed to de-segregate public schools based on race and stll today many public schools remain segregated, but not because of race. The new underlying factor of public school segregation is economics. Many segregated public schools lack high quality resources (i.e books, computers, highly educated teachers, etc.) because of economics. Can a law fix this or is there something else we can do? Tune in to discuss how we can help address this problem.

The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Program is the largest school based father engagement program in the nation with over 4000 schools participating.
Live from Brunswick County, North Carolina, we will be talking to Pat Litzinger, Congregations For Children District Coordinator, Harbor District, NC Conference of The United Methodist Church. Many churches are reaching out to the public schools in their community outreach. Watch D.O.G.S. provides an opportunity to organizations within the school community including churches to serve local children without "re-inventing the wheel". Of course local school policy and practice dictates how this is managed, but the Watch D.O.G.S. program is a great foundation to build upon. We will also be joined by New Hanover County, NC Commissioner Jonathan Barfield and Top Dog Coordinator, Scott Diggs.
Each week, WatchDOGS Radio host Keith Schumacher and co-host Chris Danenhauer discuss how this program is impacting families and schools across our nation and in four foreign countries.
Please join our audience and call in with your questions and comments.
