Role of schools in the transmission of measles in rural Senegal: implications for measles control in developing countries. (1/3103)

Patterns of measles transmission at school and at home were studied in 1995 in a rural area of Senegal with a high level of vaccination coverage. Among 209 case children with a median age of 8 years, there were no deaths, although the case fatality ratio has previously been 6-7% in this area. Forty percent of the case children had been vaccinated against measles; the proportion of vaccinated children was higher among secondary cases (47%) than among index cases (33%) (prevalence ratio = 1.36, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.04-1.76). Vaccinated index cases may have been less infectious than unvaccinated index cases, since they produced fewer clinical cases among exposed children (relative risk = 0.55, 95% CI 0.29-1.04). The secondary attack rate was lower in the schools than in the homes (relative risk = 0.31, 95% CI 0.20-0.49). The school outbreaks were protracted, with 4-5 generations of cases being seen in the two larger schools. Vaccine efficacy was found to be 57% (95% CI -23 to 85) in the schools and 74% (95% CI 62-82) in the residential compounds. Measles infection resulted in a mean of 3.8 days of absenteeism per case, though this did not appear to have an impact on the children's grades. Among the index cases, 56% of children were probably infected by neighbors in the community, and 7% were probably infected at health centers, 13% outside the community, and 24% in one of the three schools which had outbreaks during the epidemic. However, most of the school-related cases occurred at the beginning and therefore contributed to the general propagation of the epidemic. To prevent school outbreaks, it may be necessary to require vaccination prior to school entry and to revaccinate children in individual schools upon detection of cases of measles. Multidose measles vaccination schedules will be necessary to control measles in developing countries.  (+info)

Outbreaks of gastrointestinal illness of unknown etiology associated with eating burritos--United States, October 1997-October 1998. (4/3103)

From October 1997 through October 1998, 16 outbreaks of gastrointestinal illness associated with eating burritos occurred in Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania. All but one outbreak occurred in schools, and most of the approximately 1700 persons affected were children. This report summarizes investigations of two of these outbreaks and describes the collaborative efforts of CDC, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to identify the etiologic agent(s); these outbreaks may have been caused by an undetected toxin or a new agent not previously associated with illness.  (+info)

School and community influences on adolescent alcohol and drug use. (5/3103)

Social environment risk factors present in schools and communities have not been thoroughly investigated. This study cross-sectionally examined the social environments of schools and communities, and their influence on adolescent alcohol and drug use. Survey responses of eighth grade students (N = 2309), a random half of their parents (n = 943), community leaders (n = 118), school principals (n = 30), school counselors (n = 30) and chemical health providers (n = 14) were pooled to create indices of social environmental norms, role models, social support and opportunities for non-use of alcohol. Each index was examined for its association with prevalences from 30 schools of alcohol use onset, last-month alcohol use, heavy alcohol use and last-year marijuana use in univariate and stepwise regression analyses. Increases in the levels of norms, role models and opportunities for non-use predicted decreases in alcohol use prevalences. The explanatory power of the examined constructs in multivariate analyses was acceptably high (R2: 38-53%). These findings further support the notion that community-wide efforts need to be launched to affect changes in the normative, role model and opportunity structures of adolescents' social environments in order to curb adolescent alcohol and drug use.  (+info)

The epidemic of obesity in American Indian communities and the need for childhood obesity-prevention programs. (6/3103)

American Indians of all ages and both sexes have a high prevalence of obesity. The high prevalence of diabetes mellitus in American Indians shows the adverse effects that obesity has in these communities. Obesity has become a major health problem in American Indians only in the past 1-2 generations and is believed to be associated with the relative abundance of high-fat foods and the rapid change from active to sedentary lifestyles. Intervention studies are urgently needed in American Indian communities to develop and test effective strategies for weight reduction. The poor success rate of adult obesity treatment programs in the general population points to the need to develop prevention approaches aimed toward children. Because eating and physical activity practices are formed early in life and may be carried into adulthood, prevention programs that encourage increased physical activity and healthful eating habits targeted toward young people need to be developed and tested. To be most effective, interventions must be developed with full participation of the American Indian communities.  (+info)

Design and statistical analysis for the Pathways study. (7/3103)

We report the design, rationale, and statistical procedures used in Pathways, a randomized, school-based intervention for the primary prevention of obesity in American Indian children. The intervention, which is now being implemented in 7 American Indian communities around the country, includes a health-promotion curriculum, a physical education program, a school meal program, and a family involvement component. Forty-one schools serving American Indian children were randomly assigned to be either intervention or control groups. The intervention will begin in the third grade and continue through the end of the fifth grade. Efficacy of intervention will be assessed by differences in mean percentage body fat, calculated by a prediction equation, between intervention and control schools at the end of the fifth grade. Power computations indicate that the study has power to detect a mean difference of 2.8% in body fat. Data analysis will use intention-to-treat concepts and the mixed linear model. The study will be completed in 2000.  (+info)

Body composition assessment in American Indian children. (8/3103)

Although the high prevalence of obesity in American Indian children was documented in several surveys that used body mass index (BMI, in kg/m2) as the measure, there is limited information on more direct measurements of body adiposity in this population. The present study evaluated body composition in 81 boys (aged 11.2+/-0.6 y) and 75 girls (aged 11.0+/-0.4 y) attending public schools in 6 American Indian communities: White Mountain Apache, Pima, and Tohono O'Odham in Arizona; Oglala Lakota and Sicangu Lakota in South Dakota; and Navajo in New Mexico and Arizona. These communities were participating in the feasibility phase of Pathways, a multicenter intervention for the primary prevention of obesity. Body composition was estimated by using a combination of skinfold thickness and bioelectrical impedance measurements, with a prediction equation validated previously in this same population. The mean BMI was 20.4+/-4.2 for boys and 21.1+/-5.0 for girls. The sum of the triceps plus subscapular skinfold thicknesses averaged 28.6+/-7.0 mm in boys and 34.0+/-8.0 mm in girls. Mean percentage body fat was 35.6+/-6.9 in boys and 38.8+/-8.5 in girls. The results from this study confirmed the high prevalence of excess body fatness in school-age American Indian children and permitted the development of procedures, training, and quality control for measurement of the main outcome variable in the full-scale Pathways study.  (+info)

The 28 kindergarten through grade 6 elementary schools are split among five different attendance areas based on a local high school and junior high school. Although these are generally localized attendance areas, the high school or junior high school that an elementary school funnels into may not necessarily be the school that is closest to the elementary school. The elementary schools of the American Attendance Area are Ardenwood Elementary School, Brookvale Elementary School, Forest Park Elementary School, Oliveira Elementary School, Patterson Elementary School and Warwick Elementary School.[2] The elementary schools of the Irvington Attendance Area are Harvey Green Elementary School, Grimmer Elementary School, Hirsch Elementary School, Leitch Elementary School, Warm Springs Elementary School and Weibel Elementary School.[2] The elementary schools of the Kennedy Attendance Area are Azevada Elementary School, Blacow Elementary School, Brier Elementary School, Durham Elementary School, Mattos ...

The school grounds at Purleigh Community Primary School are a lovely place to visit. The Eco-Committee has been an integral part of deciding what should happen in the school grounds, ensuring that every idea is pupil friendly.. They have an outdoor classroom which doubles up as a storytelling area, willow domes for some relaxation time and some great wildlife areas too. The Eco-Committee put out reptile mats and we have been very lucky to see slow worms and grass snakes using them - a lot of the children will often have a look at these and at our bug hotel in the school grounds during break and lunchtime.. The pupils in the school love to run round and keep active and the school help encourage this by providing space to run, a climbing wall and a tyre obstacle course. Part of the grounds has been separated off as a memorial area for one of our teachers. This was designed by the pupils to be a quiet area to provide a balance within the school grounds, giving a peaceful space for time for ...

This paper focuses on senior high school students and the ways that bullying affects their school attendance. Selected items from the 2008 Ghana Global School-based Student Health Survey are analysed first to explore the relationships between the duration and type of bullying and school attendance. Second, we investigate whether having emotional problems, in addition to being bullied, incrementally affects the relationship between bullying and school attendance. Third, we explore the mitigating influence of peer friendships on these relationships. In all cases we provide a gender analysis. The results show that bullying is associated with increased absenteeism for both boys and girls. The analysis of reported emotional problems, however, shows distinct gender differences. For boys, increases in emotional problems are not associated with increased absenteeism for those who are bullied. On the other hand, for girls emotional problems were strongly associated with absenteeism and more so for girls ...

We investigate whether these so called food deserts play a role in childhood obesity using a statewide panel data set of Arkansas elementary schoolchildren. We use fixed-effects panel data regression models to estimate the average food desert effect. We next compare children who left (entered) food deserts to children who were always (never) in food deserts and homogenize samples for those whose food desert status changed as a result of a change in residence and those whose status changed only as a consequence of the entry or exit of a supermarket. We present evidence that exposure to food deserts is associated with higher z-scores for body mass ...

Editor, For decades, students at the traditional public schools in Georgia have been denied the chance to win a state championship because the system overseen by the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) ignores the fact that there is no parity among traditional public schools, private schools and city schools.Whether you are in South Georgia or North Georgia, coaches from traditional public schools talk about the disadvantage of having to play against city schools and private schools. Traditional public high schools have a defined border or service area. Private schools do not.

The results from this study indicate that PA opportunities during the school day influence step counts in young children. In addition to PE and recess, we found that minutes of teacher-reported CBPA predicted significantly higher school-day step counts. Consistent with prior studies, fifth-grade students (typically aged 10-11 y) accrued fewer steps than first-grade students (typically aged 6-7 y), and females accrued significantly fewer steps than males overall, as well as during PE and recess. Importantly, CBPA attenuated the decrease in PA among older elementary school students, and CBPA also elicited equal participation from males and females, as measured by step counts.. Previous work has shown PE to be a large contributor to steps accrued during the school day,18,38 and the current findings are consistent with that work. However, many schools-particularly those with lower student achievement on standardized tests-have cut scheduled time for PA over the last decade to prioritize academic ...

This study uses longitudinal data from one large school district - Miami-Dade County Public Schools, to investigate the distribution of principals across schools. Schools serving many low-income, non-white, and low-achieving students have principals with less experience, less education, and who attended less selective colleges. This distribution of principals is partially driven by the initial match of first-time principals to schools at the beginning of their careers and is exacerbated by systematic attrition and transfer away from these schools. Supplementing the data with surveys of principals, the authors find principals stated preferences for school characteristics mirror observed distribution and transfer patterns. Principals prefer to work in easier to serve schools with favorable working conditions which also tend to be schools with fewer poor, minority and/or low-achieving students ...
Background: Evidence show that school connectedness is important to youth wellness. However, considerable inconsistency in the concepts and measures of school connectedness exists across studies. In addition, many measures do not capture the multifaceted dimensions of the school connectedness construct. This study examined the psychometric properties of a school connectedness scale that aimed to measure comprehensively the key constructs of school connectedness. Methods: The scale was developed with teachers and tested with an ethnically diverse sample of 717 high school students enrolled in a school connectedness course using confirmatory factor analysis. Results: Confirmatory factor analyses demonstrated the association of the 15 items with the 5 factors identified in the literature-school involvement, academic motivation, school attachment, teacher support, and peer relations (?[superscript 2] = 439.99, df = 83, p | 0.0001, Comparative Fit Index = 0.991, Tucker-Lewis index =
The school nurse functions as a leader and the coordinator of the school health services team. The team may also include a school physician, licensed practical nurses, health aides and clerical staff, school counselors, school psychologists, school social workers, and substance abuse counselors.

Our meta-analysis showed that school-based physical activity interventions did not improve BMI, but there are limitations to BMI as a measure of body composition. BMI reflects both fat and fat-free components of body weight.56 Populations may vary with respect to relative amounts of lean muscle mass and body fat. Furthermore, the distribution of body fat may vary among individuals or populations, which can have important prognostic significance. It is possible that school-based physical activity could increase lean muscle mass and decrease fat mass with no overall change in BMI.. Other measures of body composition have been suggested, such as waist circumference, skin-fold thickness and percent body fat, and all of these warrant investigation.57-59 However, BMI is the most consistently reported measure of body composition,56 which makes it amenable to meta-analysis. It is our view that BMI is an important outcome measure, as the links between elevated BMI and adverse health outcomes have been ...

Student athletes should be required to take physical education classes like the rest of the school. The very important values that students learn through physical education classes are something that sports cannot teach. If schools do consider an exemption, they must decide what to include in their exemption status. The main role of a student is to learn during his time at school is to learn. Students that are exempt from physical education often do not have to fill the extra time in their schedule with any meaningful classes. Until there is an effective way for students to gain the education outside of the classroom exemptions are hard to support. Once, one considers all the factors they will find that it is best for students to be required to take physical education classes. Physical education classs requirements are changing to promote wellness over a lifetime something that a sport cannot achieve.

Most children in Montgomery County Public Schools have never pulled a carrot from the ground, says Kristen Dill, the mother of a Takoma Park Elementary School first-grader and co-chairwoman of the schools garden committee.. Everyone should get a chance at picking up a chicken, collecting eggs, pulling out a carrot and picking a blueberry, said Dill, who grew up on a farm in Nebraska. I really want that for my kids.. When Dill, who helps with the schools indoor garden, which does not include produce, and other parents requested a vegetable garden on school grounds, the request was denied due to a Feb. 26 memo by schools superintendent Jerry D. Weast.. The memo discourages schools from planting edible gardens on school property, citing pests, student allergies and maintenance concerns.. We see the value of having a garden. We get it, said Dana Tofig, a spokesman for the school system. But to have a vegetable garden creates certain challenges that have to be dealt with.. Sean Gallagher, ...

This paper addresses two frequent overgeneralisations in the orphanhood literature in Africa: about the vulnerability of children and about orphans. It specifically examines school attendance, given the common presumption that orphans are less likely to attend school than non-orphans. Using survey data from two regions in Tanzania, analysis by primary school attendance categories (regular attenders, irregular attenders, dropouts, never attenders) shows that orphans should not be compared only with non-orphans since there are other vulnerable groups of children, all with different levels of social and spatial disadvantage. Both orphans and a second large and potentially vulnerable group of children, children who have not lost a parent, but who live with only one or neither of their parents, are less likely than other children to attend school in urban and roadside settlements, but there is no clear relationship for rural areas between vulnerable groups and attendance and dropout. ...

Choosing a School Overseas. When arriving at a new assignment, parents often must choose among various schooling alternatives: local schools, Department of Defense Dependent Schools (DoDDS), American-curriculum community or international schools, British, French, or German schools, and church-affiliated or missionary schools. The choice should be determined by which type is most suitable for the child given his/her academic needs and interests.. Before choosing any overseas school, parents may have an opportunity to ask questions of a prospective schools principal or headmaster. These questions should reflect the parents deepest concerns.. Questions asked in a non-threatening manner indicate interest and involvement in a childs education, remind the school of its need to be accountable for its program, and give parents the information needed to make a correct choice.. School history - How long has the school been in existence? How long has it been at its present location? What is the schools ...

The early birth of a grandson had finally encouraged school bus driver Dolores Martinez, 63, to consider retirement, something relatives had urged her to do for years. [...] before that could happen, Martinez, a widow who drove for San Antonio Independent School District for 12 years, was killed Monday morning after her bus hit another school bus and crashed into a fence in front of Wagner High School. The bus entered the southbound lanes, collided with a Judson Independent School District bus carrying 59 elementary school students and then jumped a curb. Martinez wasnt wearing a safety belt and was flung onto the steps near the bus door, said Lt. Jose Trevino of the Bexar County Sheriffs Office. Officials were awaiting the results of an autopsy, expected to take place today, to determine if Martinez had a medical emergency or died of injuries suffered in the crash. The students were living in SAISDs area but previously attended Judson schools and had been given the option to remain at their
Since middle schools vary in their degree of implementation of middle school practices, this research was designed to compare the job satisfaction of middle school teachers with the degree of implementation of these practices. Six teachers from each of Colorados 50 schools with the name middle school were randomly selected to serve as subjects of the study. The original and one followup mailing yielded 252 responses (a 74 percent return) to the Purdue Teacher Opinionaire and the Middle School Practices Index. In addition to teacher satisfaction and the degree of implementation of middle school practices, the size of the student body and a number of teacher demographic variables were also considered. Analysis of variance and correlations were used to analyze the data. The findings indicate that overall job satisfaction of middle school faculty does not vary significantly in low, medium, or high implementation schools. In high as compared to low implementation schools,
TUESDAY, Jan. 30, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Many middle school and high school students have short sleep duration, according to research published in the Jan. 26 issue of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Preventions Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.. Anne G. Wheaton, Ph.D., from the CDC in Atlanta, and colleagues analyzed data from the 2015 national, state, and large urban school district Youth Risk Behavior Surveys (YRBSs) to examine the prevalence of short sleep duration (less than nine and less than eight hours for children aged 6 to 12 and 13 to 18 years, respectively).. The researchers found that the prevalence of short sleep duration was 57.8 percent among middle school students in nine states that conducted the middle school YRBS and included a question about sleep duration; state-level estimates varied from 50.2 to 64.7 percent in New Mexico and Kentucky, respectively. In the national YRBS, the prevalence of short sleep duration was 72.7 percent among high school students. ...

It is estimated that corporal punishment is administered between 1 and 2 million times a year in schools in the United States.1 Increasingly, states are abolishing corporal punishment as a means of discipline, but statutes in some states still allow school officials to use this form of discipline.2-4 The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that corporal punishment may affect adversely a students self-image and school achievement and that it may contribute to disruptive and violent student behavior.1,5-7 Alternative methods of behavioral management have proved more effective than corporal punishment and are specifically described in the reference articles.5-7Physical force or constraint by a school official may be required in a limited number of carefully selected circumstances to protect students and staff from physical injury, to disarm a student, or to prevent property damage..

BACKGROUND We performed a multicenter controlled trial to assess the knowledge and attitude (KA) about cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) among secondary school children in a district in Malaysia. METHODS This was a prospective intervention study. The primary endpoint of the study was to determine the level of KA about resuscitation after CPR training. The six schools and classes from selected schools were chosen by randomization among the form three and four classes using sealed envelopes. A fully validated questionnaire consisting of three sections (sociodemographic, knowledge and attitude) was given to the pupils before and 2 weeks after the intervention.

The Health Hazard Evaluation Program received a request from a union representing employees at an elementary school because of concerns about possible exposure to mold in the school building. In 2014, some elementary school employees went on medical leave reportedly because of illness from mold exposure after receiving results from fungal immunoglobulin G (IgG) blood tests and urine mycotoxin tests. Knowledge of these results prompted over 20 additional school employees to have their blood tested for IgG to fungi. Some of these employees and their physicians interpreted their blood test results as meaning they had high levels of mold in their bodies. Other employees had recurring upper respiratory and sinus infections and throat and eye irritation that they attributed to their work environment. During our evaluation, we (1) checked for moisture, water damage, and mold inside the building and in the crawl spaces beneath the building, (2) evaluated the ventilation systems, (3) measured carbon ...
