Between 2007 and 2017, the suicide rate among young people ages 10-24 increased by 56 percent, making it the second leading cause of death in the United States for this age group.

Norville, Valerie – National Association of State Boards of Education, 2020
One of the first challenges state boards of education faced this spring was what to do for the roughly 3.5 million high school seniors whose graduations were derailed by the coronavirus.

Hao, Winona – National Association of State Boards of Education, 2020

Hedger, Joseph – National Association of State Boards of Education, 2019
Elevated blood lead levels in children--even at very low levels--contribute to learning deficits and behavioral and attentional problems. No federal law requires the testing of drinking water in schools, and recent reports from the Government Accountability Office reveal a dearth of lead testing of water or paint in school buildings. This NASBE…
