Educators have long known that focusing on academics alone is not enough. Children need support to develop academically, physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally. Whole child approaches attempt to integrate these needs into a coherent whole.
In Core Education’s March issue brief, we explore whole child approaches, look at alternatives for defining student success, and review research findings related to the science of learning and child development that support attention to the whole child. We also begin to unpack the school culture and climate factors that contribute to holistic education.
