Posted Mar 05, 2019
Achieving strong outcomes for children happens by connecting what families need — at home, in child care settings, at school, at work and in their communities. The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is continually adapting to become more focused and intentional on behalf of children. Their programs use a variety of change-making tools — grantmaking, impact investing, networking and convening — to make measurable improvements in children’s lives.

Impacts of Toxic Stress and Learning in the Classroom
Center on the Developing Child of Harvard University reports that toxic stress response can occur when a child experiences strong, frequent, and/or prolonged adversity such as physical or emotional abuse, chronic neglect, caregiver substance abuse or mental illness, exposure to violence, and/or the accumulated burdens of family economic hardship without adequate adult support. Becky Carlton, Director of Strategy and Partnership for Michigan's Charter School Association, joins host Laurel Hess for a discussion on how toxic stress impacts learning in the classroom.
