Case Study – Elementary Jerald Jerald is finishing up his last two months in a second grade classroom at Robert F. Kennedy Elementary School. Kennedy Elementary is a large urban school with a number of students from low economic and culturally diverse backgrounds. Many of the students are described as “disadvantaged” and at significant risk of school failure. Next year, Jerald will move to third grade, and his parents and teachers have expressed some concerns. “Jerry is an outgoing kid who loves to talk about anything to anyone at any time”, says his mother. His current second grade teacher, Miss Robins, complains that he is “hyperactive, inattentive, and a behavior problem.” His mom, his dad, and his teacher agree that Jerald has a great deal of difficulty with controlling his emotions. Mother: “I just wish he wasn’t so easily frustrated at home when things aren’t going his way.” Miss Robins: “He’s always in a state of fight or flight. When he is in a fighting mode, he hits, teases, and screams at me or the other students.
