Dr. Pat McGuire‘s insight:

This is a great idea which needs to be considered by all elementary schools. We are indeed seeing more children with mental health concerns, some of which is due to a better understanding of children but some is due to the repeated exposures they get to uncertainty, violence (personal or on TV in the news), and less freedom to explore the world in a safe way. Schools were charged with teaching children to be productive adults who understood and would follow their leaders (back in the 1800s) so this is simply a step back toward that foundation.  Let’s support efforts to make this the norm not the promising practice.
