What Motivates Parents, Teachers, and School Leaders to Prioritize Healthy Schools?
Healthy students achieve more in school, and more education leads to longer, healthier lives. But what will it take for schools to be places where good health goes hand-in-hand with success in school and life? The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Edge Research, and GMMB (a communications firm) conducted a multi-phase public opinion study among parents, teachers, principals, district leaders, and local school board members to understand how these audiences view a "whole child" approach to learning that promotes students' social, emotional, physical, mental, and academic development.

Join us for a webinar on January 16, 2020 at 2:00 pm ET to learn more about what these key audiences prioritize for their students and schools, what would motivate them to support efforts to build healthy school environments, and what stands in the way.
