The U.S. public school system previously acted as part of the social safety net for students and families. When a student had a problem at home that was presented in school, such as hunger, emotional distress, illness or even lice, the school often advocated on behalf of the student and engaged with the family to find resolution. Many times the school personnel involved with the student (e.g., the school social worker, teacher, nurse, and principal) collaborated for the studentâ€™s overall well-being in addition to the studentâ€™s academic success.
