Resource utilization and work or school loss reported by patients with diabetes: experience in diabetes training programs. (1/4235)

Diabetes exerts a major economic impact on healthcare in the United States both in terms of direct and indirect costs. Diabetes management and education programs designed to assist patients in achieving more optimal glycemic control represent a potential mechanism for reducing the morbidity and costs associated with diabetes. The relationship between HbA1c and patient hospitalizations and between HbA1c and days lost from work or school related to diabetes within the past year were evaluated. A cohort of 2359 patients with diabetes (188 type I, 2171 type II) referred to a comprehensive diabetes self-management training program was included in the analyses. Overall, 350 (14.8%) patients reported hospitalization, and 212 (9.0%) reported days lost from work or school. Patients with type I diabetes reported more hospitalizations (26.1% vs 13.9% and days lost (19.2% vs 8.1%) than type II patients. For the hospitalization outcome, the multivariate analyses indicated that younger age, the number of co-morbidities, and the duration of diabetes exerted a greater influence on the reported numbers of hospitalization than glycemic control. For the days lost outcome, the multivariate analyses indicated that there was a marginally significant association between patients with poor glycemic control and reported work or school loss related to diabetes (odds ratio = 1.5; 95% confidence interval, 1.0-2.2). These data suggest that interventions that improve glycemic control may decrease indirect costs related to diabetes.  (+info)

Health promotion: perceptions of Project 2000 educated nurses. (2/4235)

The new approach to pre-registration nursing education in the UK (Project 2000) has an overt health focus as well as a specific remit to prepare nurses for a role as promoters of health. Data reported in this paper illuminate Project 2000 students' understanding of the concepts of health promotion and health education, and indicate the extent to which qualified nurses who have completed this new Project 2000 programme perceive themselves to be prepared for a health promotion role. Findings indicate that students are confused about the terms health education and health promotion, although most feel there is a distinction between the two. Students' descriptions emphasize individualistic approaches, and lifestyle and behaviour changes. Many recognize that health promotion should have a broader application and demonstrate a sophisticated grasp of the philosophy underpinning the promotion of health through their general perceptions of nursing. This understanding is not labelled health education or health promotion, but is embedded in their articulation of concepts such as holism, patient-centred care and enhancing independence. Paradoxically, both students and Project 2000 qualified nurses (diplomates) illustrate a clear grasp of the more complex issues surrounding the concept of health promotion while remaining confused by the terminology and its relationship to practice.  (+info)

Further analysis of the separate and interactive effects of methylphenidate and common classroom contingencies. (3/4235)

We evaluated separate and interactive effects between common classroom contingencies and methylphenidate (MPH) on disruptive and off-task behaviors for 4 children with a diagnosis of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Analogue conditions consisting of contingent teacher reprimands, brief time-out, no interaction, and alone were conducted in a multielement design. Medication status (MPH or placebo) was alternated across days in a superordinate multielement design. Results indicate that (a) the behavioral effects of MPH were influenced by one or more of the analogue conditions for each participant, and (b) time-out was associated with zero or near-zero levels of both disruptive and off-task behavior for 3 of the 4 participants during MPH and placebo conditions. Implications for the clinical effectiveness of MPH and possible behavioral mechanisms of action of MPH in applied settings are discussed.  (+info)

HIV stress in primary school teachers in Zambia. (4/4235)

A study was made of stress factors experienced by primary school teachers in Zambia after they had attended a course on stress management and counselling skills. Their pupils were significantly affected by poverty, death and illness of parents, fellow-pupils and teachers, teenage sex and pregnancy, violence in the home and, among girls, low self-esteem. The HIV epidemic had a major bearing on these factors, and there were wide-ranging effects on the teachers' own lives. Despite the training they had been given, many teachers felt that they could not adequately counsel their pupils on these matters. The teachers were in need of continuing support and training to enable them to cope with this aspect of their work.  (+info)

Tobacco use among middle and high school students--Florida, 1998 and 1999. (5/4235)

Tobacco use is the single leading preventable cause of death in the United States, and an estimated $2 billion is spent annually in Florida to treat disease caused by smoking. Florida appropriated $23 million in fiscal year 1997 and $70 million in fiscal year 1998 to fund the Florida Pilot Program on Tobacco Control to prevent and reduce tobacco use among Florida youth. To determine the prevalence of cigarette, cigar, and smokeless tobacco (i.e., chewing tobacco and snuff) use among Florida middle and high school students in public schools, the Florida Department of Health conducted the Florida Youth Tobacco Survey (FYTS) in February 1998 and February 1999. The purpose of these surveys was to establish baseline parameters and monitor the progress of the pilot program, which began in April 1998. This report summarizes advance data from the surveys, which indicate that, from 1998 to 1999, the percentage of Florida public middle and high school students who smoked cigarettes decreased significantly and that the percentage of middle school students who smoked cigars and used smokeless tobacco products decreased significantly.  (+info)

Drinking and driving among US high school seniors, 1984-1997. (6/4235)

OBJECTIVES: This article reports the prevalence of, and trends in, driving after drinking and riding in a car with a driver who has been drinking among American high school seniors, based on data from more than a decade (1984-1997) of annual national surveys. METHODS: Logistic regressions were used to assess the effects of demographic factors (gender, region of country, population density, parental education, and race/ethnicity) and selected "lifestyle" factors (religious commitment, high school grades, truancy, illicit drug use, evenings out per week, and miles driven per week). RESULTS: Rates of adolescent driving after drinking and riding with a driver who had been drinking declined significantly from the mid-1980s to the early or mid-1990s, but the declines have not continued in recent years. Rates of driving or riding after drinking were higher among high school seniors who are male. White, living in the western and northeastern regions of the United States, and living in rural areas. Truancy, number of evenings out, and illicit drug use all related significantly positively with the dependent variables, whereas grade point average and religious commitment had a negative relationship. Miles driven per week related positively to driving after drinking.  (+info)

Changes at the high end of risk in cigarette smoking among US high school seniors, 1976-1995. (7/4235)

OBJECTIVES: This study identified high school seniors at low, moderate and high risk for cigarette use to examine changes in the prevalence of daily smoking within risk groups from 1976 to 1995. METHODS: Data were taken from the Monitoring the Future Projects national surveys of high school seniors. Risk classification was based on grade point average, truancy, nights out per week, and religious commitment. Logistic regression models were used to estimate trends for all seniors and separately for White (n = 244,221), African American (n = 41,005), and Hispanic (n = 18,457) made and female subgroups. RESULTS: Risk group distribution (low = 45%, moderate = 30%, high = 25%) changed little over time. Between 1976 and 1990, greater absolute declines in smoking occurred among high-risk students (17 percentage points) than among low-risk students (6 percentage points). Particularly large declines occurred among high-risk African Americans and Hispanics. Smoking increased in all risk groups in the 1990s. CONCLUSIONS: Among high school seniors, a large part of the overall change in smoking occurred among high-risk youth. Policies and programs to reduce smoking among youth must have broad appeal, especially to those at the higher end of the risk spectrum.  (+info)

Darryl, a cartoon-based measure of cardinal posttraumatic stress symptoms in school-age children. (8/4235)

OBJECTIVES: This report examines the reliability and validity of Darryl, a cartoon-based measure of the cardinal symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). METHODS: We measured exposure to community violence through the reports of children and their parents and then administered Darryl to a sample of 110 children aged 7 to 9 residing in urban neighborhoods with high crime rates. RESULTS: Darryl's reliability is excellent overall and is acceptable for the reexperiencing, avoidance, and arousal subscales, considered separately. Child reports of exposure to community violence were significantly associated with child reports of PTSD symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: Darryl possesses acceptable psychometric properties in a sample of children with frequent exposure to community violence.  (+info)

Night sleep duration of Japanese children aged 10-18 y has become shorter by one hour during the last 30 years in Japan [1]. The so called "24-hour society", which is currently in progress in Japan, seems to change environmental conditions surrounding children. For example, mobile phones are used by more than 90 % of university students and more than 30% of junior high school students living in the urban area of Kochi city (33°N) [2]. Students can communicate with their colleagues even in the middle of the night with mobile phones. Frequent or long-time (more than 30 min) usage of the mobile phone makes university and junior high school students more evening-typed [2].. "Convenience stores" are open for 24 hours and provide several kinds of food and other goods for general civilian life. Convenience stores are now common all over Japan even in suburban areas. Illumination inside the convenience stores is very bright (2000 lux or more at the level of the eyes). Bright lighting in retail stores ...

The smoking habits of 9,276 high-school students (15-18 years old) in six cities of Northern Greece were studied using a questionnaire in order to determine the prevalence and possible risk factors for initiation of smoking. We observed that 29.6% of high-school students (32.6% of boys and 26.7% of girls) were current smokers. A percentage of 43.3% had started smoking before the age of 14. Reactive behaviour towards parents and teachers advice (40.2%) and the existence of smoking friends (40.1%) were the main reasons of initiation. A well-planned integrated anti-smoking campaign is urgently required, especially among students and teachers.
Despite the increase in methodological sophistication and complexity of models being tested for international student adjustment to universities in the United States (U.S.), researchers often do not test or control for salient demographic differences between students, including their educational status (i.e., graduate or undergraduate) and country in which they graduated high school. The current study was designed to examine whether demographic variables are associated with a range of social outcomes. Participants (N = 245) from 23 U.S. colleges and universities completed a survey in Fall 2017. Undergraduate students reported having a higher number of close friends at their institution than did graduate students; however, they also reported a lower sense of belonging than did graduate students. Students who graduated from high school in the United States reported less social support from international students at university. Implications for students and for future research are

Stress during tertiary educational period has significant negative effect on the performance of a student. Mental distress is increasing among students and is one of the important public health concerns. This study was carried out to investigate the socio demographic characteristics of students, level of their stress feeling, and status of mental health and to find out the co-relation of different factors associated with the level of stress feelings. A cross sectional study was conducted among the students of the Department of Pharmacy of UAP. A total of 504 students (181 male students and 323 female students) participated in this study. Feeling of severe stress was almost equal to both sexes. But, moderate level of stress was more associated with female students (N = 253, F = 78.33%) and overall female students were more stressful than male. Thought towards future career ranked one among many reasons of stress in students (59.67% for male students and 37.46% for female students). In terms of academic

Student dormitory as a social and cultural space plays an important role in students' satisfaction from university and higher education and their educational performance, which is why understanding the living conditions of dormitories and their management is necessary to improve it. The present article, while conceptualizing the quality of dormitory life, uses survey method and questionnaire technique to study the quality of dormitory life among 2500 students in 10 university districts and 22 universities in the country. The findings showed that in the welfare dimension, students were dissatisfied with the facilities of the room, the building and the dormitory, the cultural facilities and the physical welfare facilities. In the cultural dimension, on the one hand, students were dissatisfied with the cultural activities and programs in the dormitory, and on the other hand, they would not enjoy their leisure time. In the social dimension, the identity of social pathologies among girls was mainly

Public officials, civic organizations, and other groups and individuals are cooperating with the colleges and universities in developing "an atmosphere of cordial good will" toward Japanese American students who are being relocated through services of the National Japanese American Student Relocation Council. This Council was organized some 3 months ago at the request of the War Relocation Authority and with approval of the War Department.. The emergency evacuation from the Western Defense Area by the Wartime Civil Control Administration (WCCA) of all residents of Japanese extraction brought a total of approximately 100,000 individuals into assembly centers and then to more permanent relocation centers. This evacuation brought with it the sudden interruption of college and university studies or plans for between two and three thousand American-born sons and daughters of Japanese parents. The number includes not only those who were actually enrolled as undergraduates in West Coast colleges, but ...

Concerned faculty members regularly contact Disability Services (DS) with questions about a student that they feel may have a disability. While DS obviously desires that all students with disabilities receive the necessary accommodations, it is the responsibility of the student to initiate contact with DS.. All students admitted to Ball State are sent a disability "self-disclosure" form. If this form is returned, the student will be made aware of services that Ball State offers pertaining to the disability that the student lists on the self-disclosure form. Students may also disclose a disability to DS at any time during their time at Ball State. Unlike high school, where teachers actively refer students to special education services, we must remember that college students are adults, and privacy is a major consideration. As a result, if you have a student that you feel qualifies for services from DS, your referral to the DS office needs to be informational and supportive as opposed to directive ...

Accommodation is one of the biggest costs associated with studying away from home, and is therefore an area students and their parents will look at carefully when deciding between institutions and locations. This may be particularly true when two institutions are comparable on other measures, but one stands out for the quality, comfort, or innovativeness of housing available to students.. This is especially the case for international students, who are not only living far from home but also surrounded by new cultures and languages. Safe, comfortable, and affordable housing is a must - both for the peace of mind of students and their families but also for academic success.. Whether a student is domestic or international, housing is a significant element of their study experience. Indeed, as many international educators know well, problems with accommodations can overshadow an otherwise exceptional programme, classroom, or campus. Students come to school to study, but they also carry hopes of ...

Risk Factors for Depression in College Students. Abstract: Depression is an increasingly prevalent mental health issue, and most college students are at the age of first onset. This study utilized logistic regression to build a model for use in identification of depression in college students. In particular, it was determined that both sleep and exercise interact, with lower levels of each indicating greater risk for depression in this population. These findings are useful in identifying students at-risk for depression so that preventative services might be offered to such students.. Background and Significance. Depression is a mental illness that can be debilitating to those who experience it. In addition to psychological handicaps, depression can also affect a persons cognitive ability and physical health. Between 5 and 8% of Americans suffer from depression each year; only half of those people are treated despite known treatments being substantially effective (Duckworth, 2013). Therefore, it ...

The aim of this study was to identify the specific cognitive, motivational and behavioural predictors of two measures of university students academic achievement (grade point average and student efficacy status), after controlling for dispositional variables and student adjustment at the beginning of college. A representative sample of 250 undergraduate students was followed over a period of 3 years. Hierarchical regression analysis and logistic regression analysis were conducted to check the contribution of the included variables. The hypothesized significant role of cognitive, behavioural and motivational factors in students academic achievement has been confirmed, with the automatic thoughts related to the fear of disappointing parents and time and study environment management skills as the most pronounced predictors for both criteria. Outcome expectation is a significant predictor of the students efficacy status only, while action control beliefs and goal orientations (performance and ...

Testing for reasonable cause when the student is present at the college campus will follow the college procedure. Testing for reasonable cause when the student is present at the clinical affiliate will follow the affiliates procedure for employees. A students refusal to submit to testing or a positive result of the test may affect their eligibility to participate in a classroom or clinical experience, resulting in their inability to complete a course and/or the program and may also result ...
In CERPs annual survey of undergraduate students in computing fields, students were asked to identify the resources they are using to fund their education. They could select multiple resources. This graphic shows the distribution of responses for first-generation versus continuing-generation college students. The percentages are the number of students who selected a particular funding source out of the number of students within each group (total first-generation students = 1,076; continuing-generation students = 7,157). While first-generation students most frequent source of education funding comes from federal loans, continuing-generation students rely most frequently on financial support from their parents. The data also show that first-generation and continuing-generation students take out private loans, make use of their personal savings, receive scholarships and/or grants, work part- or full-time, and are supported by their spouse or partner at similar rates.. ...
Understanding the trends in the prevalence of cigarette smoking among youths enables policy makers to target prevention resources more effectively. Every 2 years, CDC analyzes data from the national Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) to evaluate trends in cigarette use among high school students in the United States. This report updates a previous report (1) and describes results of CDCs 2010 analysis of YRBS data from 1991--2009 for three measures: ever smoked cigarettes, current cigarette use, and current frequent cigarette use. For ever smoked cigarettes, the prevalence did not change from 1991 (70.1%) to 1999 (70.4%), declined to 58.4% in 2003, and then declined more gradually, to 46.3% in 2009. For current cigarette use, the prevalence increased from 27.5% in 1991 to 36.4% in 1997, declined to 21.9% in 2003, and then declined more gradually, to 19.5% in 2009. For current frequent cigarette use, the prevalence increased from 12.7% in 1991 to 16.8% in 1999, declined to 9.7% in 2003, and then ...

Social norms campaigns typically use statistics or facts to counter students misperceptions about how much their fellow students drink -- posters or ads stressing that the majority of students are moderate drinkers or non-drinkers, for example. While social norms campaigns have become popular on college campuses over the past decade, this approach is problematic, said Shelly Campo, Ph.D. (left), assistant professor of community and behavioral health in the UI College of Public Health, and communication studies in the UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. These campaigns are based on the assumption that students dont really know what the correct norm is, that they are likely to underestimate how many people are really drinking responsibly, and that a correct message will change their behavior, Campo said. These campaigns also assume that students want to be like the typical college student, which is difficult to define, particularly at a college or university with a large or diverse ...

Downloadable ! Author(s): Scott E. Carrell & Marianne E. Page & James E. West. 2009 Abstract: Why arent there more women in science? Female college students are currently 37 percent less likely than males to obtain a bachelors degree in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and comprise only 25 percent of the STEM workforce. This paper begins to shed light on this issue by exploiting a unique dataset of college students who have been randomly assigned to professors over a wide variety of mandatory standardized courses. We focus on the role of professor gender. Our results suggest that while professor gender has little impact on male students, it has a powerful effect on female students performance in math and science classes, their likelihood of taking future math and science courses, and their likelihood of graduating with a STEM degree. The estimates are largest for female students with very strong math skills, who are arguably the students who are most suited to careers in science.

This study explored the following three Research Questions: 1. How do undergraduate first-year Business students perceive online course elements as being motivational? 2. How do the online courses that Business students perceive as being motivational use the Keller ARCS Motivational Model? 3 How do exemplary online Business faculty use the Keller ARCS Motivational Model in online instruction? The population was students enrolled in first-year for-credit online classes taken during the Fall 2010 semester in a Midwestern community college.

January 4, 2012. By Rebecca Wright, The Windsor Star. About two-thirds of post-secondary students are ineligible for tuition rebates introduced this month by the provincial Liberals, according to the Canadian Federation of Students.. "There are a lot of exclusions to the grant that really dont make sense," CFS chairwoman for Ontario Sandy Hudson said Tuesday.. She said the province is refusing to make changes to the policy even though most students are ineligible.. The Ontario Tuition Grant is a new rebate effective Jan. 5 that offsets tuition costs for dependent full-time undergraduate students within four years of graduating high school. The annual rebate is $730 for each college student and $1,600 for each university student from families with incomes under $160,000 a year.. Although the Liberal government said more than 300,000 will benefit from the rebate program, the CFS said there are too many students that it does not apply to. Hudson said less than 50 per cent of all students in the ...

In the 1912-1913 academic year, naval architecture was the top major for Chinese students at MIT, with 14 out of 37 total enrolled in this course. By 1930, a total of 30 Chinese students had undertaken Course XIII at MIT, making it the fifth most popular course for the early Chinese students at MIT. Writing for the Chinese Students Monthly in 1917, VF Lam (Class of 1916, Naval Architecture) similarly praised MIT for establishing the course for Chinese engineers, but lamented that China had very few of her own shipyards, with most of the shipyards and docks in the country under foreign control. He thus saw the task lying ahead of Chinese engineers to be great indeed -- not only a technical problem, but also a political one.. The early Course XIII students also had an impact beyond their major. As noted above, several took leadership roles in the founding of the MIT Chinese Students Club in 1910 while also participating in the Cosmopolitan Club. In the inaugural Chinese Night entertainment put ...

What do students do in the lab?. Many graduate and undergraduate students work with us in the Baby Lab each semester. This is a great way to gain experience in psychological research, which is very important for students who plan to apply to graduate school in psychology. Some students actually interact with parents and their children in the lab, playing games, asking questions, and teaching children new words. Others run our camera and sound equipment during a study session. Some students review videotapes, counting behaviors, recording words, or trying to see how a mother and child interact. Students enter data in spreadsheets, make telephone calls, discuss research articles, and eat pizza at the end of the semester. How can I get involved?. Students must have a GPA of 3.25 and agree to work in the lab for at least two semesters. Most students stay until they graduate. Students take either 2 or 3 hours of independent study credit (PSYC 4900) to work in the lab. For each hour of credit, the ...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate school-based weight screening from the perspective of the students perceived comfort, utility, and impact of screening on reported behavioral intentions. With the exception of overweight students, particularly females, the majority of middle-school aged students we surveyed felt comfortable with weight screening and most felt that privacy was sufficient. The high rate (61.3%) of overweight female students reporting dissatisfaction with the level of privacy afforded students suggests the need for protocols that further increase privacy. Although the weight screening was not conducted in a private room as is preferable [7, 19], the creation of a private environment by measuring weight in a corner of the large school gymnasium seems to have provided adequate privacy for most students. Students reported that learning their height and weight values was useful. Students who were at-risk for overweight and overweight were more likely to report the intention to ...

Every year, a small number of undergraduate students at the University of Nottingham Medical School fail to make satisfactory progress on the course. Some have problems at all stages, others have sporadic difficulties, and a proportion fail to graduate at all, either leaving voluntarily or having their course terminated. In an earlier study we found that 10-15% of the annual intake were affected to some degree [1]. There is often a combination of causative factors, including difficulty in coping with the academic workload, health problems, and social issues such as not settling at university or having adverse personal or family circumstances. Some students may have applied for medicine as a result of family pressures rather than personal choice and may therefore lack motivation, or have unrealistic expectations.. Failure to thrive on the course, or struggling in the case of the worst-affected, is a cause for concern. Firstly it is a concern for the student, who may suffer considerable personal ...

Postsecondary education plays a critical role in building a strong workforce in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. The U.S. postsecondary education system, however, frequently loses many potential STEM graduates through attrition. An increasing portion of STEM leavers are top performers who might have made valuable additions to the STEM workforce had they stayed in STEM fields. Using data from the 2004/09 Beginning Postsecondary Students Longitudinal Study (BPS:04/09), this study tracks a cohort of beginning bachelors degree students over 6 years, providing a close look at STEM attrition among a group of high-performing college students. Capitalizing on the transcript data collected through BPS:04/09, this study also examines STEM coursetaking, detailing how participation and performance in undergraduate STEM coursework are associated with students departure from STEM fields. The study finds that about a quarter of high-performing beginning bachelors degree ...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate a model for considering general and specific elements of student experience in a gateway course in undergraduate Financial Accounting in a large university on the East Coast, USA. Specifically, the study evaluated a bifactor analytic strategy including a general factor of student classroom experience, conceptualized as student engagement as rooted in flow theory, as well as factors representing specific dimensions of experience. The study further evaluated the association between these general and specific factors and both student classroom practices and educational outcomes. The sample of students (N = 407) in two cohorts of the undergraduate financial accounting course participated in the Experience Sampling Method (ESM) measuring students classroom practices, perceptions, engagement, and perceived learning throughout the one-semester course. Course grade information was also collected. Results showed that a two-level bifactor model fit the data better than

Background Adolescents and young adults have higher injury rates than their adult counterparts in similar jobs. This study used the working college student population to assess health and safety hazards in the workplace, characterize related occupational diseases and injuries, and describe worker health/safety activities provided by employers. Methods College students (≥17 years old) were assessed via online surveys about work history, workplace exposure to hazards, occupational diseases/injuries, and workplace health/safety activities. Results Approximately half (51%) of participants (n = 1,147) were currently employed at the time of the survey or had been employed while enrolled in college. Restaurants (other than fast food) were the most frequently reported work setting. The most reported workplace hazards included noise exposure and contact with hot liquids/surfaces. Twenty percent of working students experienced injury at work; some injuries were severe enough to limit students normal ...

In this article an exposition is provided on information collected in a survey conducted at the UFS to help provide a better understanding of risk factors for HIV infection among UFS students in comparison with the behaviour patterns of students at other universities. Stereotypes identified as known risk factors making students at other universities more vulnerable to HIV and high-risk sexual behaviour, were also found among UFS students. Results indicated the existence of the following statistical significant correlations: African cultural students, gender and their viewpoint that there is a stronger relationship between homosexuality and HIV/AIDS; their opinion that HIV/AIDS is more strongly associated with African students. Data obtained from this survey questionnaire show that even if students have a great deal of knowledge to their disposal, and even if they recognised that they were personally at risk, some students sexual practices and risk-taking behaviour remained unchanged. Despite ...

This study compared more than 1,000 high school students who participated in service-learning programs with those who did not participate in schools matched for similar demographics and student achievement profiles. The intention was to estimate the effects of service-learning compared to more traditional ways of teaching similar subject areas. The outcomes measured ranged from civic knowledge, behaviors, and dispositions to school engagement factors, such as attachment to school and enjoyment of coursework, that generally predict academic success. Students came from sites in the southeast, north central, and western parts of the United States. More than half of the students in the sample were Latino/Hispanic.". Download here (PDF).. ...
There are many reports that many applicants fail to apply for financial aid when they are qualified for it; one estimate was that 2 million students who would have qualified for aid did not apply for it. There is a report suggesting that in recent years, wait-lists are more fluid than in previous years, and have become more of a safety net for colleges rather than students. Please note financial aid application deadlines, and submit your application early to maintain the best chances of receiving all the financial aid that you qualify for. Federal Direct Student Loans, also known as Direct Loans or FDLP loans, are funded from public capital originating with the U.S. Treasury.

Updated March 25, 2019. College Parents of America has long been concerned about issues involving student health. Most recently our concerns have focused on the complex mental health needs of college students. This is the third of several posts we will share regarding a) Starting the Conversation b) Recognizing the Trends c) Advocating for Support.. Our prior posts demonstrate that the growth in student mental health issues over the past five years has been dramatic. This growth demonstrates the vital need for college parents to become involved and aware of how they can be prepared to support their student. The reality is that 75% of all mental health conditions begin by age 24. Thats why the college years are so critical for families to be prepared to understand and speak about mental health issues.. StudySoup.com published a useful article to advance this topic. They summarize some key data about the increasing demand for student mental health services. While most 4-year public universities ...

EDUCATIONAL RENAISSANCE /Immunization key word at Ibaraki school (Daily Yomiuri May 26). Naho Yako / Yomiuri Shimbun Staff Writer. The following is an article from The Yomiuri Shimbuns Education Renaissance series. This three-part series focuses on the growing role of the "yogo kyoyu" (health teacher) in helping students with a variety of issues, ranging from simple health problems to bullying and developmental disorders. This, the second installment, focuses on teaching high school students the importance of vaccination against infectious diseases.. MITO-Its early February, and the second-year students at Hasaki High School in Ibaraki Prefecture are receiving a lecture from their health teacher about measles and rubella-or German measles-during homeroom.. "Rubella during pregnancy can potentially result in a miscarriage or birth defects," says Junko Hasegawa, the health teacher at the school in Kamisu, the southernmost city in the prefecture. "Measles can kill both mother and child.". Many of ...
As Western Carolina University enrollment continues an upward trend, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and the university are working to ensure those numbers include a significant portion of local Native American students.. That shared goal was formalized Tuesday, Oct. 10, with a stroke of a pen as Principal Chief Richard Sneed and Chancellor David O. Belcher signed a memorandum of understanding. That agreement establishes a baseline goal of having at least 50 Eastern Band students enrolled at WCU during any given semester, but university officials said they fully expect to exceed that goal considerably as time goes by. The memorandum also sets a goal of reinvigorating the Native American student organization on campus.. That is a good mission, considering the proximity between the university and the Qualla Boundary, said Driver Blythe, a WCU senior majoring in criminal justice and an enrolled member of the Eastern Band from the Birdtown township. "A lot of kids need a push to go further in ...
It is common in the implementation of teacher accountability systems to use a procedure known as Empirical Bayes shrinkage to adjust the teacher value-added estimates by their level of precision. Because value-added estimates based on fewer students and students with hard-to-predict achievement will be less precise, the procedure could have differential impacts on the probability that the teachers of fewer students or students with hard-to-predict achievement will be assigned consequences. This paper investigates how shrinkage affects the value-added estimates of teachers of hard-to-predict students, focusing on the context of threshold-based accountability systems. We found that the achievement of particular groups of students -- students with low prior achievement and who receive free lunch -- is harder to predict. Teachers of these types of students tend to have less precise value-added estimates, and shrinkage increases their estimates precision. Shrinkage also reduces the absolute value
By Karin Dienst. Princeton NJ -- Expanding its efforts to educate students about alcohol abuse, the University is providing freshmen and sophomores with access to an online, interactive and confidential alcohol education course called AlcoholEdu.. Janet Dickerson, vice president for campus life, was instrumental in bringing this opportunity to Princeton students in an effort to answer the question: "How do we provide salient and significant cognitive information about alcohol to students who for the most part have been hearing warnings about the dangers of alcohol since adolescence?". From her experience talking to student groups and medical professionals at Duke University, where Dickerson was vice president of student affairs from 1991 until coming to Princeton in 2000, she discovered that students are more interested in learning how alcohol affects the functioning of the brain than hearing a litany of warnings. Dickerson anticipates that the content of AlcoholEdu -- replete with video ...
I place the teacher that demands one conclusion or perspective among the tyrants that Milton rejected. My concern is that these teachers dont realize what theyre doing.. Whereas the Socratic Method itself requires confirmation bias in the teacher whose job it is to direct the student to a conclusion, at least the Method allows for student exploration of ideas. Teaching that places the conclusion first not only denies students a path towards comprehension, it short circuits student thought.. Im not a math teacher, but I know from working with students in our A+ Club academic support service that while there may be a single answer to a math problem, there are multiple paths to it, and by insisting upon that single path the learning of both the conclusion and the desired path are lost.

According to the American Dental Education Association (ADEA), the average educational debt per graduating dental school senior in 2016 was roughly $219,000. Factoring out the 16 percent of dental school seniors who graduate with no debt, the average student debt rises to $262,000.. With dental school tuition nearly doubling since 2000, new dentists are faced with staggering amounts of debt after graduation, which can limit their ability to choose a preferred career path. In addition, with the passage of the Budget Control Act of 2011, graduate students lost access to federally subsidized loans. Under this program, the federal government pays the interest while students are in school, during a grace period and during periods of deferment. The loss of this benefit has increased the debt burden on graduate and professional students, including dental students.. Most dental students rely on federal student loans to finance their dental education. ADEA reports that in 2016, nearly 70 percent of ...
