Hardwired to Connect: Commission on Children at Risk
Hardwired to Connect reports the psychological and physiological benefits of Religious Education. This report was done by experts from YMCA of the USA, Dartmouth Medical School, and the Institute for American Values.
The 83-page report done by a 33-member panel comprised of children's doctors, research scientists, mental health professionals, and youth service professionals found that children's brains are hardwired for a certain level of social and spiritual connectedness.
The panel also identifies that today's society is lacking in fostering for this connectedness, and therefore today's children are suffering. This suffering is linked to an increase in rates of depression, anxiety, attention deficit, conduct disorders, suicidal thoughts, and other serious mental, emotional, and behavioral problems.
Imagine telling principals that by allowing Released Time in their schools, they are giving their students a life that can be free of the dreadful problems listed. When you are presenting the need for Released Time Bible Education to school officials, the findings of this report are crucial in proving need for more moral and spiritual development in a child's education.
