    This free e-book could be a valuable resource to circulate to school systems. Many of us have extended family members, such as nieces and nephews, that we know are dealing with the very same issues that we had to when growing up as "the weird one" in a classroom of peers and never fitting in and never really knowing who we were.


    Understanding Jehovah's Witness Children - A Guide For Schools
    By Caroline Norton
    A vital tool for all professionals who work with children. The chances are that one day, if not already, you will be assigned a child to assist who is being brought up by Witness parents. In order to be able to help them you need to know the basic language and structure, the safeguarding policies, procedures and practices of Jehovah's Witnesses. Every school should have this guide.

    Andrew Holden did an interesting analysis of the differences between the old blue school brochure and the then (1990s) new school brochure. Both brochures were designed to be presented to and read by educationalists with JW children under their care. Basically it showed that the JW approach totally changed from being, "you're worldly and we're different so learn to live with it", to " we are not so different at all, in fact in many ways we are model pupils." I wonder if the new brochure marks any update on the discourse.

    Oh right this isn't an official publication. Interesting! Is it anti-JW? Sorry didn't read post properly.

    The picture of the man in the picture nails it down pat how JW children feel in public schools, or just overall. I know from experience.
