Health and Welfare of students

The American Federation of School Administrators believes that every student should not fail to get an education due to health and/or welfare needs. To ensure that every child comes to school ready to learn, every student should have access to a comprehensive health care system that provides direct and confidential access to properly licensed physicians and other licensed health care professionals. The Federation also feels that state governments and the federal government must do more to help alleviate the problems associated with poverty. Part of that work should include assistance for housing, childcare, transportation, job training/placement, and assistance during the transition from welfare to work.
