Military children often move six to nine times during their K-12 school years. Many make multiple moves during high school years alone, some even during their senior year. Our editor Sandra was one of these kids, and she knows their struggles. In addition to giving up friends and routines, deployments separate some students from a parent (or parents). The role of the Military Child Education Coalition is to help families, schools, and communities be better prepared to support military-connected children throughout their academic careers.
What we love about this organization: While it started out primarily to help military children, the programs offered by @militarychild_mcec don’t require an ID card, any child going through a transition to a new school is welcome to join the program.
