News Around the Nation

 

Chalkbeat

Hector Rodriguez knew a return to in-person instruction would come with some challenges for many students, especially after 18 months of remote learning. Before students walked into his class in late August, the James Ward Elementary physical education teacher made it his mission to create a safe and comforting environment after an extended period of uncertainty. 

 

The 74

Families, lawmakers, doctors and educators across the political spectrum are in agreement: The kids are not all right. Maryland, Colorado, California and New Jersey are among the states that have recently passed laws that expand access to youth mental health care. New protocols and resources are aimed at getting care to those who need it most — particularly youth experiencing abuse at home, uninsured and LGBTQ+ students. 

 

Green Bay Press Gazette

Kou Chang knows the impact of seeing people — or not seeing people — who look like you while growing up. He went into the education profession to be a role model and to change that for Hmong students in Green Bay, WI. Through Chang’s entire educational experience, which includes earning a bachelor’s degree in physical education, all his teachers were white. 

 

World

A study by the California Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance earlier this year found 20 percent of California elementary schools did not have a physical education program during the pandemic. Over half of California PE teachers felt that pandemic restrictions limited their programs. “A lot of the impacts of COVID aren’t visible,” said Terri Drain, president of SHAPE America.
