2. Address Abuse and Neglect

Child abuse and neglect are extremely sensitive issues that require a strong team of adults to intervene when a parent, relative, or guardian is harming a student. A teacher who becomes an education advocate must address this type of situation, but should consult with professional social workers to decide upon the appropriate course of action. Start by researching the most common signs of abuse and neglect, then watch for them in your students. If you suspect a child is in an unsafe situation, document what you’ve seen, heard, or experienced and contact a guidance counselor or administrator to decide next steps.
