Full-Service Schools: A Revolution in Health and Social Services for Children, Youth, and Families

Joy G. Dryfoos, Author Jossey-Bass $30 (310p) ISBN 978-1-55542-601-9
The controversial subject of school-based health and social services is examined here by a researcher specializing in prevention programs for youth. Dryfoos ( Adolescents at Risk ) advocates broadening the mission of today's schools where such non-pedagogical issues as drug abuse, teen pregnancy and violence are already addressed. She proposes ``integrated interventions in education, health and social services'' on the school site, an approach shown to be effective in a small number of model programs throughout the country. An already overtaxed public school system is patently in need of reform; Dryfoos offers a timely, comprehensive guide to coordinating concerted action among schools, public and private agencies and families for ``one-stop'' service.
