A syndrome characterized by the acute onset of unilateral FACIAL PARALYSIS which progresses over a 2-5 day period. Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury. Pain behind the ear often precedes the onset of paralysis. This condition may be associated with HERPESVIRUS 1, HUMAN infection of the facial nerve. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1376)
Developing strategies to control schistosomiasis morbidity in nonenrolled school-age children: experience from Egypt. (1/87)Schistosomiasis is a major health problem in school-age children in much of the tropical world. They harbour the most intense infections for both Schistosoma mansoni and S. haematobium. In Egypt, the Ministry of Health and Population (MOHP) has implemented a successful school-based treatment programme in which children are screened and those found to be infected treated with praziquantel. High nonenrolment rates in some rural areas have a negative impact on the coverage of this programme and on its ability to reduce transmission in the community. The main aim of our study was to introduce and test a simple intervention to extend treatment to nonenrolled children using the routine MOHP schistosomiasis treatment programme. Twenty villages or ezbas in Tamia district, Fayoum governorate, with 8 schools and 1901 nonenrolled children were targeted. 88.5% of nonenrolled children attended schools to avail themselves of treatment. Coverage rates were significantly higher for girls (P < 0.001). These results are important for countries where schistosomiasis is endemic. They suggest that offering interventions in schools may not only improve the health of school attendees but also be an affordable way of extending services to out-of-school children. (+info)
Recruitment and retention: the development of an action plan for African-American health professions students. (2/87)This article presents results of a survey of African-American students enrolled in the colleges of medicine, dentistry, allied health, pharmacy, and nursing at the University of Kentucky. The survey was designed to determine the students' perceptions of factors that affect recruitment, enrollment, and academic progress of African-American students. Fifty-three of seventy students responded to survey questions addressing recruitment; admissions; and financial, social, personal, and academic support. Over 50% of medical students decided by junior high to enter a health career; only 15% of other students decided that early. The influence of a family member was more important in student decisions to enter nursing or medicine than in decisions by other students. Only 17% of medical students reported difficulty in locating sources of financial aid compared to 48% of those from other colleges. Perceptions regarding lack of social outlets were consistent among respondents from all colleges. Findings emphasize the importance of early exposure to the health professions, early outreach strategies, ongoing financial assistance, and the importance of establishing social networks for African-American students enrolled in a majority institution. The survey results were used to develop an action plan for the offices of minority affairs, student services, and academic affairs to address identified problems and concerns. (+info)
Early predictors of adolescent violence. (3/87)OBJECTIVES: This study sought to identify early predictors of adolescent violence and to assess whether they vary by sex and across different types and levels of violence. METHODS: Data from a 5-year longitudinal self-report survey of more than 4300 high school seniors and dropouts from California and Oregon were used to regress measures of relational, predatory, and overall violence on predictors measured 5 years earlier. RESULTS: Deviant behavior in grade 7, poor grades, and weak bonds with middle school predicted violent behavior 5 years later. Attending a middle school with comparatively high levels of cigarette and marijuana use was also linked with subsequent violence. Early drug use and peer drug use predicted increased levels of predatory violence but not its simple occurrence. Girls with low self-esteem during early adolescence were more likely to hit others later on; boys who attended multiple elementary schools were also more likely to engage in relational violence. CONCLUSIONS: Violence prevention programs for younger adolescents should include efforts to prevent or reduce troublesome behavior in school and poor academic performance. Adolescent girls may also profit from efforts to raise self-esteem; adolescent boys may need extra training in resisting influences that encourage deviant behavior. Programs aimed at preventing drug use may yield an added violence-reduction bonus. (+info)
Evaluation of indicated suicide risk prevention approaches for potential high school dropouts. (4/87)OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated the efficacy of 2 indicated preventive interventions, postintervention and at 9-month follow-up. METHODS: Drawn from a pool of potential high school dropouts, 460 youths were identified as being at risk for suicide and participated in 1 of 3 conditions randomly assigned by school: (1) Counselors CARE (C-CARE) (n = 150), a brief one-to-one assessment and crisis intervention; (2) Coping and Support Training (CAST) (n = 155), a small-group skills-building and social support intervention delivered with C-CARE; and (3) usual-care control (n = 155). Survey instruments were administered pre-intervention, following C-CARE (4 weeks), following CAST (10 weeks), and at a 9-month follow-up. RESULTS: Growth curve analyses showed significant rates of decline in attitude toward suicide and suicidal ideation associated with the experimental interventions. C-CARE and CAST, compared with usual care, also were effective in reducing depression and hopelessness. Among females, reductions in anxiety and anger were greater in response to the experimental programs. CAST was most effective in enhancing and sustaining personal control and problem-solving coping for males and females. CONCLUSIONS: School-based, indicated prevention approaches are feasible and effective for reducing suicidal behaviors and related emotional distress and for enhancing protective factors. (+info)
Career escalation training. Five-year follow-up. (5/87)A study has been reported on 5 years of experience in a community mental health center with a career escalation training program for indigenous workers in a ghetto community. More than one-half entered the program during the 5-year period and about one-third had either achieved a degree or were still active in the Program at the time of this study. Although it is too early to assess the full impact of the program on career advancement, the authors believe that at least a master's degree is required for true upward and lateral mobility. The most striking finding was the high retention rate in the mental health field of those workers who entered the program in contrast to those who didn't. A number of suggestions have been made to improve the effectiveness of a career escalation training program. It is too early to tell whether the long term benefits for individuals, the Center, and the mental health field at large justify the cost and the continuation of such educational release time programs.

The effects of early childbearing on schooling over time. (6/87)CONTEXT: In recent studies, the effects of teenage childbearing on the schooling of young women have been smaller than those in earlier research. The discrepancy has been attributed to the use in the later studies of controls for unmeasured differences between young women who start childbearing early and those who do not, but could instead reflect changes in the effect of early childbearing over time. METHODS: Data from the National Longitudinal Survey of the Labor Market Experience of Youth and the Panel Study of Income Dynamics are used to identify the reasons for this difference. Logistic regression, ordinary least-squares regression and fixed-effects models examine the impact of early childbearing on rates of high school graduation and college attendance, and number of years of schooling completed through age 29. RESULTS: The two data sets show a significant negative impact of a teenage birth on rates and years of completed schooling. For example, teenage mothers complete 1.9-2.2 fewer years of education than do women who delay their first birth until age 30 or older. Moreover, compared with women who give birth at age 30 or older, teenage mothers have odds of high school completion 10-12% as high and odds of postsecondary schooling 14-29% as high. Unobserved differences between young mothers and their childless peers reduce, but do not eliminate, the effects of early births. Effects on high school completion declined in recent periods because more young women completed high school, regardless of the timing of their first birth. However, the gap between early and later childbearers in postsecondary school attendance widened from 27 to 44 percentage points between the early 1960s and the early 1990s. CONCLUSIONS: Given the current importance of a college education, teenage childbearers today are at least as disadvantaged as those of past generations. (+info)
Correlation of admission criteria with dental school performance and attrition. (7/87)This study was conducted to provide current information on the relationship between admission criteria and dental school performance, including the association of admission criteria and dental school outcomes such as remediation and attrition. Standard tests of bivariate association and multivariate regression models appropriate for continuous and discrete dependent variables were used to examine the relationship between multiple indicators of admission criteria and dental school performance for six recent classes at the University of Florida College of Dentistry (UFCD). The admission criteria included the undergraduate science grade point average (GPA), undergraduate non-science GPA, Dental Admissions Test (DAT) academic score, Perceptual Motor Aptitude Test (PMAT) score, and admission interview score. Measures of dental school performance were the National Dental Board Examination Part I and Part II (NB-I, NB-II) scores, yearly and final dental school GPA, and academic progress through the UFCD program. In general, most admission criteria were good bivariate indicators of dental school performance. Multivariate analyses indicated that students with higher undergraduate science GPAs and DAT academic scores were more likely to achieve higher NB-I and NB-II scores. The undergraduate science GPA and admission interview score were the most consistent determinants of dental school GPA. Students with lower undergraduate science GPAs, DAT academic scores, and PMAT scores were more likely to remediate, to repeat an academic year, or to be dismissed. Although bivariate differences were observed in several admission criteria of students who remediated one or more courses, repeated an academic year, or were dismissed only the undergraduate science GPA and the PMAT score were indicators of programmatic progress in the multivariate analysis.

Early unemployment can contribute to adult health problems: results from a longitudinal study of school leavers. (8/87)STUDY OBJECTIVE: To investigate the long term effects of early unemployment (a total of more than half a year of unemployment between the ages of 16 and 21) on health behaviour and psychological and somatic symptoms. DESIGN: A 14 year follow up of a cohort of school leavers was conducted from 1981 to 1995. Information was collected by questionnaires. SETTING: An industrial town in northern Sweden. PARTICIPANTS: The original cohort was defined as all pupils in a middle sized municipality in the last year of compulsory school at age 16 (n=1083). The participants were followed up between the ages of 16 and 30. The analysis included 96% of the original sample, 547 men and 497 women MAIN RESULTS: After controlling for initial health behaviour and symptoms as well as for working class background and late unemployment, early unemployment among young men and women showed a significant explanatory effect on smoking, psychological symptoms and-among men only-somatic symptoms after a follow up of 14 years. No correlation was found between early unemployment and late excess alcohol consumption. CONCLUSIONS: Early unemployment can contribute to adult health problems. Thus, youth unemployment constitutes a significant public health problem, which to a certain extent remains in adult age. (+info)

THE SOCIAL COSTS OF INADEQUATE EDUCATION: Research Pegs Costs of High School Dropouts at Hundreds of Billions of Dollars |...
The United States loses hundreds of billions of dollars each year when young people fail to graduate from high school, according to leading educational researchers who presented their findings at The Social Costs of Inadequate Education, a symposium at Columbia Universitys Teachers College on October 24. The research, documented in 10 papers presented at the symposium, found that high school dropouts contribute little in the way of tax revenue or productivity, and also present additional burdens to the health care, public assistance, and criminal justice systems.. Educational inequity is first and foremost an issue of justice and fairness, said Henry R. Levin, professor of economics and education at Teachers College and chairman of the symposium, but the research findings were presenting today show that it is also an issue that affects all of us in our daily lives-and will affect our children even more so.. According to research by Cecilia E. Rouse, a professor of economics and public ...
Smerter og bruk av smertestillende medikamenter hos norske 15-16-åringer. Påvirkes frafall i videregående skole fem år senere?
Objective: To study associations between pain, the use of analgesics, reduction in spare time activities and school absence because of pain among 15-16-year-olds in Norway and high school dropout five years later. Background: Most Norwegian 15-16-year-olds report that they have good health, but pain among adolescents is common and identified as an important health problem. The use of over-the-counter analgesics has increased, also among adolescents. High school dropout is a challenge for the society and put young people at risk for later work marginalization and social exclusion. The etiology is multifactorial and dependent of variables like gender, grades, ethnicity and the parents socioeconomic status. The role of pain and its associations with high school dropout have not been studied before. Method: 14063 Norwegian 15-16-year-olds from six different counties completed a questionnaire and were followed up for five years. Logistic regression was used to compute ORs for high school dropout. ...
The early identification of risk factors on the pathway to school dropout in the SIODO study: a sequential mixed-methods study ...
School dropout is a persisting problem with major socioeconomic consequences. Although poor health probably contributes to pathways leading to school dropout and health is likely negatively affected by dropout, these issues are relatively absent on the public health agenda. This emphasises the importance of integrative research aimed at identifying children at risk for school dropout at an early stage, discovering how socioeconomic status and gender affect health-related pathways that lead to dropout and developing a prevention tool that can be used in public health services for youth. The SIODO study is a sequential mixed-methods study. A case-control study will be conducted among 18 to 24 year olds in the south of the Netherlands (n = 580). Data are currently being collected from compulsory education departments at municipalities (dropout data), regional public health services (developmental data from birth onwards) and an additional questionnaire has been sent to participants (e.g. personality data).
ERIC - Reframing School Dropout as a Public Health Issue. Preventing Chronic Disease: Public Health Research, Practice, and...
Good education predicts good health, and disparities in health and in educational achievement are closely linked. Despite these connections, public health professionals rarely make reducing the number of students who drop out of school a priority, although nearly one-third of all students in the United States and half of black, Latino, and American Indian students do not graduate from high school on time. In this article, we summarize knowledge on the health benefits of high school graduation and discuss the pathways by which graduating from high school contributes to good health. We examine strategies for reducing school dropout rates with a focus on interventions that improve school completion rates by improving students health. Finally, we recommend actions health professionals can take to reframe the school dropout rate as a public health issue and to improve school completion rates in the United States.

Inductivist: May 2006
Can people move up in America? In a sociology class I took, when the topic turned to occupational mobility, the professor told us there was no such thing in the U.S. Well, I now know that if a sociologist says something, bet the other way. According to the GSS, 25% of people whose father went no further than high school earned either a bachelors or a graduate degree. But certainly nobody whose father was a high school dropout got anywhere, right? Wrong--11% completed a 4-year degree or more. If I confronted Mr. Sociologist with these facts, he would say that, yes, there is some movement, but the fact that the numbers are not bigger is due to nothing but unjust social restraints. But how well do children of high school dropouts do if they answer a challenging GSS reasoning-ability question correctly? Thirty percent of them get a bachelors or graduate degree ...
Schoolzone | The effect of schools on school leavers university participation
This paper considers the role that schools have in determining whether school leavers participate in higher education or not. It examines the association between schools and university participation using a unique dataset of 3 cohorts of all young people leaving maintained schools in Wales. School effects are identified, even after controlling for individual-level factors, such as their prior attainment, socioeconomic circumstances, ethnicity, and special educational needs. Schools appear to have a particular effect on the likelihood that a young person enters an elite university. However, the findings suggest the concept of a school effect on higher education participation is not straightforward - schools appear to have different levels of effectiveness depending on the gender of the young people and the nature of their higher education participation. These findings are considered within the policy contexts of school effectiveness and widening access to higher education.. Read research ...
Survey shows lack of parental support and teen pregnancy point to higher dropout rates | Americas Promise Alliance
The 2012 High School Dropouts in America survey, conducted by Harris/Decima on behalf of Everest College, lists reasons younger Americans dropout of high school. The national survey of 513 adults ages 19 to 35 found that nearly a quarter of Americans cited the absence of parental support or encouragement as a reason for not completing high school, followed by 21 percent who said they became a parent. Other factors that led to students dropping out were missing too many days of school, failing classes, uninteresting classes, and suffering from a mental illness, such as depression.

The United States has a high school dropout rate as high as 50 percent for some ethnic groups. This dropout rate exacerbates racial divides and socioeconomic disparity. Youth at-risk of dropping out are often over represented in urban schools. Today s educators are challenged to find ways to retain and engage all students. This need is all the more urgent because changes in the job market have resulted in far fewer no-skill required jobs. Today s job market demands that young people have meaningful secondary and post secondary education.; Educators at Academy High in California are working to meet the educational needs of their students. Student body statistics are commensurate with characteristics of at-risk youth. The student body is 91 percent Latino, 85 percent socioeconomically disadvantaged and 73 percent English Language Learners. In addition, 43 percent of the parents are not high school graduates. Rather than view these students as deficits, the educators at Academy High focus on ...
Migra Matters: The Immigration Equation: Summer reading for wonks
Looking across major cities, differential immigrant inflows are strongly correlated with the relative supply of high school dropouts. Nevertheless, data from the 2000 Census shows that relative wages of native dropouts are uncorrelated with the relative supply of less-educated workers, as they were in earlier years. At the aggregate level, the wage gap between dropouts and high school graduates has remained nearly constant since 1980, despite supply pressure from immigration and the rise of other education-related wage gaps. Overall, evidence that immigrants have harmed the opportunities of less educated natives is scant. On the question of assimilation, the success of the U.S.-born children of immigrants is a key yardstick. By this metric, post-1965 immigrants are doing reasonably well: second generation sons and daughters have higher education and wages than the children of natives. Even children of the least educated immigrant origin groups have closed most of the education gap with the ...
On Track to Success: The Fourth Year Evaluation of Congresos Éxito Program - Research for Action
Congreso de Latinos Unidos has partnered with Edison High School on the Éxito™ initiative since 2008-09 with the goal of reducing the schools high dropout rate and increasing graduation rates. The program has received support from a variety of funders in its five-year history, including Philadelphias Department of Human Services (DHS), The Pew Charitable Trusts, Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, Philadelphia Youth Network, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, 21st Century Community Learning Centers, and the Comcast Corporation.. This Year Four report continues to follow the first two cohorts of program participants who had completed the Éxito™ program by 2011-12 and examines whether there was any lasting impact of Éxito™ for these students. The report focuses on the programs two long-term outcomes-preventing high school dropout and increasing high school graduation-and also re-examines the early warning indicator outcomes that were the focus of the evaluation in ...

Immigrating to Opportunity: Estimating the Effect of School Quality Using a Natural Experiment on Ethiopians in Israel
Downloadable (with restrictions)! In May 1991, 15,000 Ethiopian Jews were brought to Israel in an overnight airlift and sorted in a haphazard and essentially random fashion to absorption centres across the country. This quasi-random assignment produced a natural experiment whereby the initial schooling environment of Ethiopian children can be considered exogenous to their family background and parental decisions. We examine the extent to which the initial elementary school environment affected the high school outcomes of Ethiopian children, using administrative panel data on the educational career of each child in Israel through much of the 1990s. The results show that the early school environment has an important effect on high school dropout and repetition rates and on end-of-high-school matriculation exams. The results are robust to controlling for observable characteristics of the community, suggesting that characteristics of the elementary school itself, such as the quality of instruction and peer
Cohort 1 - Projects | Annenberg Institute at Brown University
Chronic absenteeism is a growing concern for policy makers. Besides the well-established correlations between low attendance and less learning, drug and alcohol use, and crime, absenteeism is among the strongest predictors of long-term outcomes such as high school dropout, net of other factors including achievement and suspensions. Recent evidence shows that while a variety of individual and family factors can lead students to miss school, within-school factors such as supportive and engaging teachers can have big impacts on reducing student absences. However, it is not clear why certain teachers are more effective than others in keeping students at school. At the same time, there is a growing literature documenting the match between student and teachers race can affect student short-term achievement as well as long-term educational attainment, primarily through role-model effects. Thus, it is likely that race match might also play a role in student attendance. This project sets out to answer ...

ParaPundit: Fake Educational Miracle In Wake County North Carolina
Randall Parker said at October 8, 2005 12:31 PM: Akhenation06,. Certainly environments that humans create or modify cause changes in selective pressures. Examples:. 1) Medicine that prevents death. Decrease in infant mortality has reduced selective pressures for stronger immune systems for example. It has also decreased selective pressures against assorted harmful mutations.. 2) Schools and industrial economies provide incentives to delay and reduce reproduction. Education especially reduces female reproduction starting around the 8th grade and higher according to some research Ive read. The college educated have fewer kids than the high school grads who have fewer kids than the high school drop-outs. This exerts selective pressure against alleles for higher IQ.. 3) Sexually segregated prisons prevent prisoners from reproducing. Increases in incarceration rates exert selective pressures against genetic alleles that increase the odds of being criminals.. Human-caused changes in selective ...
Regional variation in health care utilization and mortality
Downloadable (with restrictions)! Geographic variation in health care utilization has raised concerns of possible inefficiencies in health care supply, as differences are often not reflected in health outcomes. Using comprehensive Norwegian microdata, we exploit cross-region migration to analyze regional variation in health care utilization. Our results indicate that place factors account for half of the difference in utilization between high and low utilization regions, while the rest reflects patient demand. We further document heterogeneous impacts of place across socioeconomic groups. Place factors account for 75% of the regional utilization difference for high school dropouts, and 40% for high school graduates; for patients with a college degree, the impact of place is negligible. We find no statistically significant association between the estimated place effects and overall mortality. However, we document a negative association between place effects and utilization-intensive causes of death such

In a longitudinal study of the effects of early childhood abuse, 92 adolescents who had become parents while under 20 years of age were compared to 297 adolescents who had not become parents during their teenage years. Three hypotheses are examined: that early childhood abuse and neglect are risk factors for subsequent adolescent pregnancy and parenthood; that low self-esteem is related to both early abuse and later adolescent parenthood and may mediate the relationship between them; and that adolescent parenthood is related to high school dropout and to other types of social deviance--… ...
Nina Marie Martinez was born in San Jose, the daughter of a first-generation Mexican American prune-picker-turned-building contractor and a German American stay-at-home mother. A high school dropout, she was a single mom at 20, supporting herself and her daughter by reselling flea-market finds. Soon, she was a vintage-clothing maven and decided to go back to school to study business. All I knew was that I needed money, and if you needed money, you studied business, she says. But taking general education classes reminded her of one of her first loves, literature. (The other was the Giants.) So she went to UC Santa Cruz to study literature. Thats when she started hearing voices. They werent trying to make me do bad things or anything, she says, laughing. These women were having a conversation in my head, and I started writing it down.

Forgotten Hollywood » 2015 » December
The man from Hoboken celebrates his 100th birthday today. Francis Albert Sinatra was born on December 12th, 1915, in the Hudson River waterfront city that was home to German, Irish, and Italian immigrants. Some young-at-heart residents might be raising a glass, or two, to the award-winning singer and actor.. The high school dropout delivered the Jersey Observer newspaper, and worked at a local shipyard. As part of the Hoboken Four, they won first prize on a national radio program for amateur entertainers in 1935. He became a singing waiter at The Rustic Cabin in Englewood Cliffs, where he met songwriter Cole Porter, and forgot the words to Porters hit, Night and Day.. After immense popularity as a crooner, and a movie star in a series of films with Gene Kelly, Frank hit a rough patch, and made one of the greatest comebacks in Hollywood history, culminating in winning an Oscar for his performance in From Here to Eternity. He had famed marriages to Ava Gardner and Mia Farrow. He often performed ...

Not Everyone is Living Longer - Mother Jones
Harold Meyerson is agog: Clearly, they missed the recent study in Health Affairs which found that the life expectancy of white working class men fell by three years from 1990 to 2008, and that of white working class women by five years. This is actually the figure for high school dropouts, not the entire working class. At the other extreme of the educational spectrum, whites with more than a college degree, life expectancies have risen by five years for men and three years for women.. The chart on the right shows the difference, with men in light colors and women in darker colors. Longer life spans, it turns out, really do depend on just how privileged you are.. ...
Baby M - Wikipedia
In March 1984, Mary Beth Whitehead responded to an ad placed by the Infertility Center of New York in the Asbury Park Press seeking women willing to help infertile couples have children. She was a high school drop-out who had married Richard Whitehead, a truck driver with whom she had two children, Ryan and Tuesday. At roughly the time of her pregnancy with Baby M, Richard was in an accident. He failed to notice that a trailer carrying a full-sized bulldozer had detached from the large dump truck he was driving, as he passed through South Jerseys largest traffic circle. Elizabeth Stern was not infertile, but had multiple sclerosis and she and her husband William Stern were worried about the potential health implications of pregnancy, including temporary paralysis, and transmitting genes that might put a child who shared them at risk of developing the same illness. The Sterns and Mary Beth Whitehead entered into a surrogacy contract, according to which Whitehead would be ...

25 Year-Old Secondary School Dropout Arrested for Impersonating a Doctor at University of Uyo Teaching Hospital - BellaNaija
Has it become so easy for someone to impersonate a doctor for two months without going unnoticed? That is the sad reality of what happened at the University of Uyo Teaching Hospital (UUTH), Akwa-Ibom state.. A 25-year-old man, Usen Effiong, was recently arrested for posing as a medical doctor and consulting for the Teaching Hospital for more than two months. The State Police Command Public Relations Officer, Etim Dickson confirmed the arrest to Punch, adding that Effiong was caught based on intelligence report from the UUTH.. The Chairman, Nigerian Medical Association, Akwa Ibom State branch, Dr. John Udobang denied ever knowing the man saying that he is not a member of the association. He told Punch that he received a call from the Dean of the Faculty of Clinical Sciences, UUTH, Dr. Sunday Udo on the activities of Effiong. When he went to interview the suspect, he found him with stethoscope and sphygmomanometer (blood pressure apparatus).. Udo told me that they caught someone who has not ...
Equipment Failure - Achievements in the Pathetic. - Cranky the Clown School Dropout

Beauty School Drop-out - News - Portland Mercury
Mom wouldnt let me wear makeup until I was 14. To subvert her iron-fisted post-feminism, I was forced to create desperate substitutions, such as sidewalk chalk instead of eye shadow, and big brothers tinted Oxy 10 for foundation. Deprived of real makeup, I set my sights on becoming a self-styled aesthetician by the age of eight. In fact, the first time I got busted for sneaking into the liquor cabinet was when I swiped a...
The Myth of Public School Failure
Irving Kristol recently attacked Clintons social spending plans by asserting: Look at the spending on public schools. It goes up and up, and the results go down and down and down. When Benno Schmidt resigned Yales presidency in 1992, he denounced public education to justify a new national for-profit private school chain: We have roughly doubled per-pupil spending (after inflation) in public schools since 1965....Yet dropout rates remain distressingly high...overall, high school students today are posting lower SAT scores than a generation ago. The nations investment in educational improvement has produced very little return. In 1990, the U.S. spent $5,521 per pupil on public schools, more than double the $2,611 (in 1990 dollars) spent 25 years earlier. More money for schools wont do any good, critics assert; its just pouring good money after bad. But spending more hasnt failed. It hasnt been tried. The truth is that little new money has been invested in regular educational improvements ...
Czech-Republic:Teaching and Learning in Follow-up and Shortened Study - Eurydice
Follow-up Study The follow-up study (nástavbové studium) newly takes place in individual courses. Some of these are analogous to the courses of upper secondary level, some are different. The succession of the follow-up study courses and the three-year courses of upper secondary education with the apprenticeship certificate has been set by a Government regulation. Two courses are intended for the school leavers from all of these courses (Business Enterprise and Security Services). A great number of pupils prefer the option of three-year study leading to an apprenticeship certificate followed by two years of the follow-up study to a four-year course leading to a school-leaving examination. After five years of study school leavers have an apprenticeship certificate as well as a school-leaving examination certificate. Individual FEPs have been published for the follow-up study in 2009, 2010 and 2012. Schools should begin the instruction according to prepared SEPs no later than 2 years after ...
Accounting vital to commerce - The National
KUNA: The quality of graduates depends on a range of factors. Some of such factors include the ability and intelligence of the individual, educational instructors, physical resources, duration of study and the required content. Therefore we need to be open about what constitutes quality. We believe everyone has the capability to reach their full potential if they are provided the appropriate training and coaching focused on producing results. We believe many graduates are raw talents that need to be coached into gaining hands on exposure and experience. Only then they are able to develop fully. The government institutions can only absorb 25 per cent of school leavers. Government institutions do not have space to accommodate the reaming 75 per cent. The private institutions are carrying the burden to provide training for some of the 75 per cent of school leavers. Quality can suffer where there is inadequate infrastructure for education, teaching and learning. CPA PNG continues to provide the ...
Portrait | Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research
The MPI for Polymer Research has not only made a name for itself within the framework of training international junior scientists. For more than 20 years it has been actively training young school leavers as apprentices in three fields of work. School leavers can choose to undergo an apprenticeship from the following areas: as a industrial mechanic with a focus on precision mechanics, as a chemical laboratory assistant in cooperation with the University of Mainz, or as an office administrator, all trained by experts with the backing of modern infrastructure. Within the framework of a cooperation project between the institute and BASF the MPI-P will soon offer trainee physics laboratory assistants the chance to experience working conditions in a research institute. In addition the institute is involved in projects of the School Laboratory Natlab run by the University of Mainz. In addition, scientists from the institute teach seminars and give lectures, actively supporting the teaching ...

Explorations in Equality of Opportunity, 1955-1970 [United States]
This data collection contains information gathered in a longitudinal survey of a national sample of adults who were high school sophomores in 1955 and who participated in a 1970 follow-up survey. The 1970 study was designed to explore the determinants and long-range consequences of individual mobility in the United States. In 1955, in 42 public high schools across the nation, 4,151 sophomores were given aptitude and career goals questionnaires by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). In 1970, the University of North Carolinas Institute for Research in Social Science (IRSS) attempted to contact the sample with mailback questionnaires. There were 2,077 usable responses. The sophomore sample approximated a representative national sample of its age cohort, with the following exceptions: (1) students attending predominantly non-white institutions were excluded, (2) private schools were excluded, (3) large-city schools tended to be under-represented, and (4) low-ability students and school dropouts ...
Survival Analysis on Duration Data in Intelligent Tutors - IIS International
Michael Eagle, Tiffany Barnes. Effects such as student dropout and the non-normal distribution of duration data confound the exploration of tutor efficiency, time-in-tutor vs. tutor performance, in intelligent tutors. We use an accelerated failure time (AFT) model to analyze the effects of using automatically generated hints in Deep Thought, a propositional logic tutor. AFT is a branch of survival analysis, a statistical technique designed for measuring time-to-event data and account for participant attrition. We found that students provided with automatically generated hints were able to complete the tutor in about half the time taken by students who were not provided hints. We compare the results of survival analysis with a standard between-groups mean comparison and show how failing to take student dropout into account could lead to incorrect conclusions. We demonstrate that survival analysis is applicable to duration data collected from intelligent tutors and is particularly useful when a ...
R E N D A A N رِ ن د آ ن: Behind the Seen
George Steiner (born 23 April, 1929), pictured above in a portrait made between 1999 and 2000 by Christopher Mark Le Brun; in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London. It is a banality to note the deluge of subliteracy which has engulfed much of American secondary schooling. Evidence is somewhat surreal. The most proverbial of scriptural allusions, of references to world classics, go unrecognized. Seminal dates, even in American history, draw a blank. Some eighty percent of high school graduates could not tell whether Ireland lies to the east or to the west of Great Britain. Undergraduates, even at reputable colleges or universities cannot assign Aquinas, Galileo, or Pasteur to their appropriate century. An understanding of sentences with dependent clauses is dwindling, as is the available vocabulary. For a growing majority, even the elements of calculus are an arcane mystery. The catalog of emptiness runs on. The statistics of school dropouts, of the near-illiterate, worsen from ...
Fostering Healthy Futures Efficacy Trial for Preadolescent Youth in Foster Care - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Youth with a history of maltreatment and foster care placement are at risk for a host of mental health, behavioral, and social problems, resulting in adverse life-course outcomes of great public health significance. This is a 5-year efficacy trial of the Fostering Healthy Futures Program (FHF), a preventive intervention designed to promote prosocial development, and to reduce problem behaviors for youth in foster care. FHF is an innovative, culturally-sensitive and multi-component intervention for 9-11-year-old children who have been maltreated and placed in foster care. Through a 9-month intervention that includes screening assessments, one-on-one mentoring, and skills groups, FHF targets cognitive, social and behavioral domains in order to build competencies, improve mental health functioning and quality of life, and reduce problem behaviors and adverse life outcomes (e.g. arrests, school dropout, restrictive placements). Assessments with youth, caregivers and teachers will be conducted at ...
European Tribune - Comments - American Poverty
I taught in the friggin University of California. Tenures professors generally didnt give a shit about teaching. I agree it is next to impossible get a bad professor fired. But... the junior faculty, hired lecturers and teaching assistants live under the dictatorship of student evaluations, and pressure from the department itself to make the department look good. This means, the only criterion of quality is did everyone get an A?. The students can actually get rid of the weaker and younger (hence usually more dedicated and idealistic) among their teachers just because they were held to a standard for the first time in their lives. So, its screwed up all around, but again, its not a matter of socialism, its a matter of pecking order. And young, non-cynical teachers are at the bottom of the pecking order, just below the school dropout ...
