1 TULSA TALKS IMPROVING OUR SCHOOLS, OR A CHARADE? Community Schools By A.T. of Oklahomans For School Accountability at Operation Information October 2005

2 THE UNITED NATIONS “To achieve world government, it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, loyalty to family traditions, national patriotism and religious dogmas.” G. Brock Chisholm, first director of UN World Health Organization (1948-1953) co-founder World Federation for Mental Health

3 EDUCATION “Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insane…

4 … “…because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity.” “…because he comes to school with certain allegiances to our founding fathers, toward our elected officials, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being, and toward the sovereignty of this nation as a separate entity.”

5 SO… “It’s up to you as teachers to make all these sick children well – by creating the international child of the future.” Psychiatrist Chester M. Pierce, Address to the 1973 Childhood International Education Seminar Psychiatrist Chester M. Pierce, Address to the 1973 Childhood International Education Seminar

6 ENTER… FULL SERVICE SCHOOLS

7 “One in four children growing up in America cannot become a healthy, self-sustaining adult without immediate attention.” “The primary institutions that have traditionally carried the responsibilities for raising and teaching children— families and schools — cannot fulfill their obligations without immediate and intensive assistance.” Full-Service Schooling by Joy Dryfoos, 1994

8 “We must call on schools and community institutions to come together in an organized movement to help young people gain equal opportunities to grow into responsible adults. Schools have to become places where all children can learn.”

9 FULL-SERVICE SCHOOLING “The idea of full-service schooling has aroused considerable interest. In the United States a range of initiatives have been taken; and it has been considered as a serious policy option in Britain and Australia. But what is it and what issues surround it?” “The idea of full-service schooling has aroused considerable interest. In the United States a range of initiatives have been taken; and it has been considered as a serious policy option in Britain and Australia. But what is it and what issues surround it?” Joy Dryfoos, 1994 Joy Dryfoos, 1994

10 “I have proposed the concept of full-service schools to convey the spirit of this movement- a revolution in the delivery of health and social services for this nation’s children, youth, and families.” Joy Dryfoos (1994) Full –Service Schools. A revolution in health and social services for children, youth and families, San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, page 205

15 ON THE ROAD WITH OKLAHOMA’S FIRST LADY (10-29-03) Mark Twain Elementary: “At this ‘full service school’ site, the Tulsa Alliance for Families provides research- based programs, services, and opportunities that are crucial supports for Mark Twain’s parents and children.”

16 ON THE ROAD, cont. (10-29-03) “Utilizing a ‘wrap-around’ process of service delivery, in partnership with the Alliance’s member agencies, school- based ‘Student Success Teams’ focus on providing a broad array of supports.”

17 ON THE ROAD, cont. (10-29-03) “These include: extensive home visitation/outreach, assistance in meeting basic needs, nursing treatment, referrals for medical care and other community services, crisis intervention, individual, group, and family counseling, intensive family support through case management services, parent education, and family literacy.”

18 “The programs began in early fall and currently serve almost all the enrolled students at each school as well as many of their younger siblings.” “Plans are underway to expand these model programs to other area elementary schools, including other area school districts.”

19 What About Funding? Inside Full Service Community Schools, Chapter 11 “Our nation cannot embrace the concept of full-service community schools without a major commitment to funding them. If my figure of 22,000 schools with very needy populations has any validity, and if it costs around $100,000 a year to set up the infrastructure, we're talking about $2.2 billion for starters.”

20 “Sustainability is the desirable goal. What happens to these community school programs when the five-year grants run out?” “Perhaps the concept to pursue is entitlement, meaning that every child is entitled to go to a school where he or she can gain access to the supports needed to overcome the barriers to learning.”

21 FEDERAL AND STATE FUNDING UNITED WAY METROPOLITAN DEPARTMENT OF HUMAN SERVICES TULSA ALLIANCE FOR FAMILIES COMMUNITY ACTION PROJECT TULSA/UNION PUBLIC SCHOOLS COMMUNITY SERVICE COUNCILOF GREATERTULSA

22 “Through leadership of former State Secretary of Health Tom Adelson, Tulsa Public Schools Board member Gary Percefull, state legislator Lucky Lamons, and Dr. Gerald Clancy and John Gaudet from the University of Oklahoma Medical School in Tulsa, the local Bedlam clinic model was expanded to Mark Twain and Eugene Field elementary schools in conjunction with the MHSC initiative, Tulsa Alliance for Families.” LAUNCHING SCHOOL BASED CLINICS- Tulsa (CSC Highlights, 2004)

23 THE ROLE OF FEDERAL EDUCATION AND LABOR IN SCHOOL BASED HEALTH CLINICS Written Testimony of Karen R. Effrem, MD June 6, 2000

24 Testimony of Karen Effrem, MD “Provisions of, loopholes in, or goals of the Healthy People 2000 (*2010) Program, the Goals 2000 Educate America Act, the School to Work (STW) Opportunities Act, the Early Periodic Screening, Detection and Treatment (EPSDT) program under Medicaid as outlined in the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation of 1989 (OBRA),

25 Testimony, cont. “Title I of the current Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)/Improving America’s Schools Act (IASA), and a joint program of the Departments of Education and Health and Human Services called Caring Communities have resulted in…”

26 Effrem Testimony “a massive restructuring and merging of health, education and labor programs.”

27 Cont. “The schools are “one stop shopping centers” for all these services. School –based or school –linked clinics (SBCs) are the vehicles and tax dollars, especially through Medicaid, are the funding mechanism.”

28 “The emphasis in our public schools is no longer on the academic liberal arts education required of responsible citizens in a free republic, but instead on medicalized (sic) and psychologized (sic) mixture of attitudes, beliefs, feelings, behaviors, and job skills. Our children are seen no longer as individual human beings with unlimited potential, but as human resources or human capital in a planned and managed economy.” Continued….

29 3 Disturbing Consequences 1. “The massive gathering of personal medical and family data from students. 2. The loss of parental control in the education and medical care of their own children… 3. The back door implementation of the Clinton health care plan…” Ibid. pp 1-2, Karen R. Effrem, 2000 Ibid. pp 1-2, Karen R. Effrem, 2000

31 The Goals of Psychiatry and Psychology “In August 2003, the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Science Foundation announced the results of their $1.2 million taxpayer-funded study. It stated, essentially, that traditionalists are mentally disturbed. Scholars from the Universities of Maryland, California at Berkeley, and Stanford had determined that social conservatives, in particular, suffer from ‘mental rigidity,’ ‘dogmatism’, and ‘uncertainty avoidance,’ together with associated indicators for mental illness.” Source: B.K. Eakman. Chronicles Magazine, 2004

32 HEALTH CLINIC DEBUTS AT CLARK ELEMENTARY ‘Bedlam Campus Community Health Services Partnerships opened the clinic Jan. 6 at the school, 3656 S. 103rd East Ave.’ Tulsa World, Jan. 25, 2005

33 Tulsa World article, cont. ‘Judy Hall, a nurse at Clark Elementary School, believes the new health clinic at the school will improve students’ lives and help with attendance.’ ‘Judy Hall, a nurse at Clark Elementary School, believes the new health clinic at the school will improve students’ lives and help with attendance.’ “Oh, my gosh. This is the most fantastic thing,” said Hall, who has been at the school since November. “You have to meet children's basic needs before you can teach them to read, and that's what the clinic does.” “Oh, my gosh. This is the most fantastic thing,” said Hall, who has been at the school since November. “You have to meet children's basic needs before you can teach them to read, and that's what the clinic does.”

34 Tulsa World article, cont. ‘Hall is assisted in seeing to the students' medical needs by the clinic's full-time physician's assistant, C.J. Dark. A social worker and a pediatrician who rotates among Bedlam's school-based clinics also will be part of the clinic. Dark, who graduated from Wichita State University's physician's assistant school, can write prescriptions.’

35 Berkeley High: A Sex Ed Success Story by Laura Lambert, 1/27/05. Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “Enter the school-based health clinic, founded in the early 1990s..…Berkeley is a prime example of what can happen when the state, the city, the school district, and the community band together to provide teens with the support they need to get through some of the most precarious years of their lives.” “Enter the school-based health clinic, founded in the early 1990s..…Berkeley is a prime example of what can happen when the state, the city, the school district, and the community band together to provide teens with the support they need to get through some of the most precarious years of their lives.”

36 Berkeley High Success story, cont. “Although the clinic provides high quality first aid, its real strength lies in the myriad services that improve teen health: mental health counseling, on-site HIV testing, pregnancy testing and counseling, access to EC and other birth control methods, and strong peer education and outreach programs that deal with everything from narcotics to nutrition.”

37 Berkeley High Success story, cont. “One hidden benefit of having so many services located in one clinic is what Kaukonen calls "a natural cover" for students seeking sensitive services, such as HIV-testing. "There is so much first aid and other services at the clinic, nobody knows why you're coming in," she says. The clinic reinforces this feeling of safety with its commitment to privacy and confidentiality.”

38 Berkeley High Success story, cont. “The impact of such a system cannot be overstated. Already, Berkeley High's health center has been a safe haven for students fraught over an unintended pregnancy; students who are seeking honest answers to complicated questions about sex and relationships; students who, in a time of need, do not need to be judged. Says Namkung: "I think, frankly, we've saved a lot of lives."

40 Mental Health “…Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Alger Hiss, 1946, WHO “…Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” Alger Hiss, 1946, WHO “Education for Mental Health” (Use to be Hygiene) “Education for Mental Health” (Use to be Hygiene) “…It’s (robotry) objectives…the ultimate destruction of the human individual as a person…” Here among academic surroundings a carefully arranged schedule of indoctrination has been prepared by the National Education Association.” “…It’s (robotry) objectives…the ultimate destruction of the human individual as a person…” Here among academic surroundings a carefully arranged schedule of indoctrination has been prepared by the National Education Association.” (Dr. Lewis A.
