Mitigating the Impact of School Mobility

Transition is hard. Families know the challenge of packing up, moving to a new location, and starting over – over and over again. Changing schools and the disruption to the educational journey is often cited as the most challenging part of the military lifestyle. To help mitigate this challenge, the Military Child Education Coalition collaborated with the Center for Public Research and Leadership at Columbia University to produce resources for parents and educators. A report detailing the impact of student mobility on military-connected and other highly mobile students, The Challenges of Supporting Highly Mobile Military-Connected Children in School Transitions – the Current Environment, details the impact and is the result of extensive research and interviews.
