05 SES 09 B, Continuities and Change in Policy and Practice for Education-Health Linkages: International Perspectives
Symposium<br /> Discussant: Jennifer Sumsion
Connecting educational reform and health and human services reform has been a challenge in the Netherlands. Despite a growing number of partnerships in primary education, increased experimentation in secondary schools and colleges for further education, and the support from cities and school boards, the future of this movement is difficult to predict. The focus of this presentation is on Behaviour and Education Support Teams (BEST) and community schools in Dutch primary and secondary schools. Current research and implementation strategies will be discussed, together with some European perspectives. The Dutch government supports the development of behaviour and education support teams since 2002. The Netherlands Youth Institute coordinates research and development activities and has developed a quality framework and implementation tools to upscale these teams in primary, secondary and further education. A brief overview of the programme is offered and small scale impact studies that have been undertaken in 2006-2010. The focus is on the findings of national surveys undertaken in 2010 and on the logic and practice of this complex innovation in the Netherlands. The theoretical framework draws upon the work of Van Veen (2004, 2007, 2008 and 2011) in the Netherlands and Hallam (2005) and Halsey (2006) in the UK.
