Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) have only been recently understood to play a crucial role in health outcomes for children as they become adolescents and adults. This understanding has also made it clear that health and its impact on education are to be studied as a combined matter and not two standalone aspects of a person’s life. For this reason, the research done to try to understand the impact of adverse childhood experiences is applicable to the 1 education field and can provide an understanding to educators about the students that they teach and the communities that they serve.
