Media Highlight: Dalhousie researcher says we need to stop bubble‑wrapping privileged students
Educators can help combat parental and administrative overprotectiveness by setting different expectations for students who can handle more challenges, said Michael Ungar, a Canada Research Chair in child, family and community resilience and professor of social work at Dalhousie University in Halifax.
No-fail policies are a reasonable response to students living in poverty, who have a disability or are dealing with complex social issues, but not for typical kids with a comfortable home life, he said.
