Jane Close Conoley, Dean of UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School, publishes a column on real threats to our children in the Santa Barbara Independent
Dr. Jane Close Conoley, Dean of UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School, has written a column for “Getting Education: Notes from UC Santa Barbara’s The Gevirtz School” for the on-line version of the Santa Barbara Independent. The essay, entitled “Toxic Environments: The Real Threats to Children’s Happiness” considers some influences that we know do damage to children’s physical, emotional, and social welfare but continue to surround many children for at least part of every day. The piece can be read on the Independent website.
The bi-weekly Independent column is another effort by UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School to bridge the gap between town and gown.
