Resource Discovery: NPR Military Children in Public School

By Jay Morse & Heidi Radunovich, PhD

This month, PBS is highlighting the emotional challenges and resilience of children with a parent in the military in their PBS Weekly Edition. According to PBS, military children move nine times on average before they graduate. The majority of children are in public schools. This can create problems of feeling displaced, misunderstood, and excluded. The first podcast provides a look at the challenges that military children face in public schools.
