The Trib ran two stories today about a $15 million Atlantic Philanthropies grant to fund health clinics, family services and more after-school and summer programs at seven Oakland middle schools (five campuses). Above is a video posted on YouTube about the kids who have been involved in researching their peers’ behavior — and weighing in on what services each school should offer.
Curious about the subject myself, I did some nosing around and came across these California Healthy Kids survey results from two years ago. I believe more current results might be out fairly soon, so it will be interesting to see how they compare.
Look at the weapons responses, in particular. Do those stats seem to square with reality?
