A Rookie Goes to Philadelphia City Council

“A rookie goes to the Philadelphia City Council…to testify about Adverse Childhood Experiences:  ACEs”

“We won’t have a successful education paradigm,
or even accurately interpret academic results,
while ignoring trauma’s overwhelming presence.”

” . . . By the time Kauffman testified, he notes, only council members and a few other people who stayed to be polite remained. And most of the council members were tapping away on their smart phones.”  .

Nevertheless, Danny’s Story was heard !
