Jones, Stephanie; Bailey, Rebecca; Kahn, Jennifer – State Education Standard, 2019
Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) refers to the process through which individuals learn and apply social, emotional, behavioral, and character skills required to succeed in schooling, the workplace, relationships, and citizenship.

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…

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.…

Increasingly, researchers in the areas of eating disorders and obesity prevention are recognizing the benefits of collaborative efforts aimed at curbing the spectrum of eating-related disturbances.

Perreira, Krista M.; Smith, Luke – Prevention Researcher, 2007
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…

Birman, Dina; Weinstein, Traci; Chan, Wing Yi; Beehler, Sarah – Prevention Researcher, 2007
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. Public schools represent the setting where many of the acculturative struggles of immigrant children unfold, having traditionally served as a vehicle of socialization and "assimilation" of immigrants in the U.S.…

Meals at school are available both through the U.S. Department of…

Story, Mary; Kaphingst, Karen M.; French, Simone – Future of Children, 2006
Mary Story, Karen Kaphingst, and Simone French argue that researchers and policymakers focused on childhood obesity have paid insufficient attention to child care.

Peersman, Greet; Rugg, Deborah – New Directions for Evaluation, 2004
Although a necessary component of good program management and accountability, monitoring data do not usually provide answers to questions about whether, how, and why a specific program works. More in-depth, systematic inquiry is needed to do this. In this article, the authors focus on the evaluation of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-prevention…

Landen, Walt – Updating School Board Policies, 1992
Many view the problem of violence as not merely a school problem, but as a much larger community problem that is finding its way into the schools. As a society, in addition to teaching our children how to be violent, we are giving them the tools of violence. There are steps that school board members can take to establish and maintain control of…
