by Voorhies, Carilyn B., M.Ed., Minot State University, 2017, 67; 10272702
Abstract (Summary)

Military duties are not just required of the men and women in uniform. Their families serve by their side through countless moves, school transitions, and deployments. These family members serve our country in ways most will never understand. These dependents have unique challenges imposed on them due to the military way of life. Unfortunately, despite their unwavering service to our country, they do not always receive proper care in their educational environments. The purpose of this study is to understand what efforts educators have made to support the exceptional needs of military dependents. The study’s findings are taken from observations and interviews within two public middle schools serving military dependents.
