Student Reflections on Quality in Post-Strike Oakland and What We Need to Do

“I had to advocate for myself…Nobody knew who I was…I had to beg and plead for mental health support, in the midst of a panic attack, I’ve had teachers yell at me and tell me I can’t leave. When you are having a panic attack you can’t explain that you are having a panic attack…PTSD, depression, and anxiety are real things for our students.”

This a deep reflection on mental health, the state of quality and what our students are experiencing and what they need. Please take a listen. And follow the Energy Convertors for more great student centered content.
