While North Carolina is having great success in reducing its dropout rate in the public schools, children with behavioral and emotional disabilities are being left behind. Dr. Summer Stanley’s class at UNC Pembroke would do something about it.

During the spring semester, the class worked to build a multi-faceted program to raise awareness of the problem. The course, School Social Work, turned into a service-learning laboratory for the students and the community.

The plan, which culminated in a community meeting, was comprehensive, including a media relations piece, and included establishing partnerships with Scotland County Schools and Eastpointe, a regional community mental health care provider.
