  • Disparities in Academic Achievement and Health: The Intersection of Child Education and Health Policy

    1/1/09 - Fiscella, Kevin, Kitzman, Harriet

    Recent data suggest that that the United States is failing to make significant progress toward the Healthy People 2010 goal of eliminating health disparities. One missing element from the US strategy for achieving this goal is a focus on gaps in child development and achievement. Academic achievement and education seem to be critical determinants of health across the life span and disparities in one contribute to disparities in the other. Despite these linkages, national policy treats child...

    3/1/14 - Tanenbaum, Courtney; Upton, Rachel

    The gender inequities in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) academic workforce are well documented and remain of concern, especially given the urgent calls to increase and broaden participation in STEM. Women of all races and ethnicities continue to compose a small number of science and engineering faculty at U.S. research universities and often do not receive the same level of recognition, career affirmation, and resources as their male colleagues.

    Early Success: Closing the Achievement Gap for Our Youngest Learners

    1/5/09 - Jerry D. Weast

    The district faced an indisputable fact: increasing numbers of young children impacted by poverty and language difference were starting school lagging behind their peers in basic literacy and mathematics skills, and they often remained behind. If children were not meeting certain benchmarks by the end of first grade, there was little likelihood that they would be able to read fl uently by third grade, an important indicator of academic success in the later years.5 So, the work began in the...

    Expanded Learning Time by the Numbers

    1/23/10 - Center for American Progress,

    "Expanding learning time, or ELT, in schools is a core strategy on the national education reform agenda as policymakers and educators recognize that the standard school calendar does not fit many students’ needs. Most U.S. students attend school for an average of 6.5 hours a day, for 180 days a year. This is not nearly enough time for many students, particularly those who are English language learners and those who start the school year learning below their grade level."

  • Help Close the Achievement Gap

    1/1/05 - Peebles-Wilkins, Wilma

    Haskins and Rouse (2005) propose high-quality educational interventions that target both the parent and the child. There is an emphasis on collaborating with parents to the maximum degree possible. The authors review a number of highly successful early intervention programs with different approaches and acknowledge that several programs that focus solely on the children also yield successful outcomes. In addition to the more traditional educational interventions, the authors recommend...

  • High school reform and Black male students: Limits and possibilies of policy and practice

    An infusion of federal funding and philanthropic support for high schools has sparked an unprecedented number of educational reforms.

This article explores the complexities of these issues. The authors examine the...

In addition, there were no statistically significant impacts of the program on a number of other outcomes such as how often students' reported positive behavior toward their peers or on their perceptions of school safety.
