Child abuse and neglect by Cynthia Crosson-Tower( Book )

9 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in English and held by 959 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educators have a duty to become involved in detecting and reporting abuse and neglect for at least three reasons. First, the trauma created by abuse and neglect is as much a detriment to learning as is a perceptual or physical difficulty. Second, teachers' roles place them in close contact with the child on a daily basis. And third, in all states, teachers are mandated by law to report child abuse and can be held liable for failure to do so. This book discusses the teacher's role in recognizing and reporting child abuse or neglect in nine chapters: (1) "How Do You Recognize Abuse and Neglect?" (2) "Whom Do You Tell?--The Reporting Process"; (3) "If You Suspect Child Abuse, How Can You Validate Your Suspicion?" (4) "Once You Report, What Happens Then?" (5) "What If You Have to Go to Court?" (6) "What Can You Do for the Child, Beyond Reporting?" (7) "Who Is the Child's Family?" (8) "How Can You Help the Child by Helping the Family?" And (9) "What Can You Do about Prevention?" Also included is a 41-item bibliography, eight appendices which include sources of further information and reporting procedure, and a list of state review board members. (Jmk)

Homeless students by Cynthia Crosson-Tower( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since understanding homeless students and their families is the beginning of the teacher's response to the problem, this monograph is designed to acquaint the teacher with the variety of issues involved in being homeless. The introduction to the document discusses the number of homeless families, the necessity for schools to respond quickly to homeless students before they leave, and the school as a safe haven for the child. Chapter one provides a brief history of homelessness and an explanation of why so many families today are undergoing this trauma. Chapter two provides a picture of homeless students and their families. It includes a graph of the typical cycle of homelessness which includes numerous life crises for the homeless family. Chapter three describes some of the problems these students may have in the classroom and suggests ways to address these problems. Chapter four discusses what teachers can do to help beyond the classroom setting. The emphasis throughout these pages is on the importance for educators to take a proactive stance on a problem that promises to get worse before it gets better. A glossary of homelessness terms, such as wet shelters, is included. A commentary on homeless children by Mary Hatwood Futrell, president of the National Education Association; a list of advocacy organizations for the homeless; and sample student assessment and parent release forms are included.

This publication, intended to serve as a general guideline, presents responses to 20 questions on the specific roles and responsibilities of individual teachers when they are involved in reporting child abuse and neglect.

The responses to the 20th question is presented in the form of a chart listing the statute covering child abuse and neglect for each jurisdiction.
