Pamela Cantor, M.D. in Education Writers Association Blog About Whole Child Education
Turnaround for Children Founder and Senior Science Advisor, Pamela Cantor, M.D., was quoted in a blog post by the Education Writers Association titled: “Educating the ‘Whole Child’ Is Complex. Will Schools Get It Right?”
The article references a panel discussion at the 72nd annual Education Writers Association National Seminar, where Dr. Cantor joined Laina Cox from Capital City Public Charter School; Chester Finn, Jr. from the Thomas B. Fordham Institute; Timothy Shriver from the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL); and Laura Meckler from The Washington Post to discuss “Educating the Whole Student.”
“There isn’t any question that this is hard to do,” said Pamela Cantor, the founder and senior science advisor of Turnaround for Children, a national nonprofit that aims to translate neuroscientific research into tools and strategies to better serve students who face adversity. “And we have an infrastructure not set up to do it,” Cantor said at the event. “But … with the knowledge we have today, the urgency to take that knowledge and figure out how to integrate the pieces so that they become a whole” is essential.”
