Educating the Whole Child -- Resources

As we move forward in Georgia K-12 education, we’re intensifying our focus on educating the whole child. 
What does that mean exactly? 

First, educating the whole child means providing access to a well-rounded education – courses, activities, and programming that give all students access to an enriched curriculum and educational experience. 

It also means that we address students’ well-being in the learning process and explore new ways to provide an excellent, relevant, meaningful education to every child – while recognizing that all children learn at different rates and have individual needs. Educating the whole child allows districts and schools to address non-academic factors that impact student achievement, and it maximizes educational opportunities for students. 

To empower local districts and schools as they provide a well-rounded, whole-child education for students, we’ve compiled extensive guidance and resources. Click here for guidance​ and explore the links below to access research and resources.
