Abstract

Offers a broad perspective on the problems that face schools and related areas of interface between professional and academic psychology, educators, and the public. School psychology is discussed as a practice that has historically received too little attention. One result is the growth of problems affecting consumers and the psychology community. These are discussed in a broader perspective of the economy, social justice, the generation gap, and the growing trend of punitiveness toward children and youth. Suggestions for social policy planning are offered. (7 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
