Potential Bias in Teacher Referrals to the School Nurse.
Schneider, Paula L.; Grimes, Richard M.
Journal of School Health, v63 n10 p426-28 Dec 1993
This study investigated whether bias was evident in teacher referrals to the school nurse by examining referrals from seven elementary schools. The 117 children referred for nonroutine nursing interventions were compared with 3,787 children not referred. There were no differences by gender but significant differences by socioeconomic status and race. (SM)
