Stephens, Jason M. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
Epidemic is an apt adjective for describing the problem of academic dishonesty. When asked if they have cheated in the past year, a "disproportionately large number" (i.e., the majority) of secondary and tertiary students in the United States (and in every other country in which it's been studied) report having done so. The problem of…

Higgins, Christina – Language Policy, 2010
In the healthcare arena, language policy-related research has thus far been limited to questions about "language access," i.e., whether individuals are supplied with health information in their languages, and whether interpreters for doctor-patient consultations are provided (Martinez 2008; Ngo-Metzger et al. 2003; Partida 2007; Vahabi…

Machawira, Patricia; Pillay, Venitha – Journal of Education Policy, 2009
In this paper we argue that education policy on HIV and AIDS is policy about life. As such, the contexts and the realities of teachers and learners in the classroom need to be embedded in the policy. We make a case that HIV and AIDS policy needs to extend beyond the prevention mode to one that includes care and support in the policy context.…

If current trends continue, over 20% of American children will be the children of immigrants and many will be Latino within the next decade (Urban Institute, 2006). Thus, health, education, and prevention professionals will likely work with immigrant youth at some point in their careers. This article provides professionals with a…

Today, 10.6% of children enrolled in kindergarten through 12th grade in the U.S. are foreign-born, and 1 in 5 are children of immigrants.
