    Health in childhood and adolescence and high school dropout

    1/23/10 - Joshua Breslau

    "There is ample evidence that poor health in childhood and adolescence is associated with higher risk of dropping out of high school. This association is suggestive of a causal effect of health problems on dropout and a potential role for health interventions to reduce the proportion of high school students who drop out. Interventions with such a dual benefit—improving health while decreasing dropout—would be important policy priorities. With the goal of identifying strategic priorities...

    Impacts of a Violence Prevention Program for Middle Schools: Findings From the First Year of Implementation

    1/16/10 - Suyapa Silvia , Jonathan Blitstein , Jason Williams , Chris Ringwalt , Linda Dusenbury , William Hansen

    "A new evaluation of a violence prevention program for middle schools finds that after one school year, there were no statistically significant impacts on how often students reported that they were victimized by their peers, or committed violence against their peers. 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. The...

  • Lessons That Matter: LGBTQ Inclusivity and School Safety

    1/1/12 - Burdge, H., Sinclair, K., Laub, C., Russell, S.T.

    Data from the California Safe Schools Coalition 2004-2006 Preventing School Harassment (PSH) survey illustrates the importance of LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum on student safety.1 In particular, students who answered that they learned about LGBTQ people or issues as part of a classroom lesson were more likely to feel safer, more likely to report a stronger sense of school belonging, and less likely to report being harassed based on sexual orientation or gender...

  • LGBT Student Safety: Steps Schools Can Take

    1/1/06 - Russell, S.T., McGuire, J.K., Laub, C., & Manke, E.

    School safety is a problem in California: data from 2000-2001 California Healthy Kids Survey, which included over 237, 000 California students, show that 7.5% of students in 7th, 9th, and 11th grades report being bullied based on actual or percieved sexual orientation. But what steps can schools take to promote school safety for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students? We conducted the Preventing School Harassment (PSH) survey in 2003, 2004, and 2005 to answer this question.

The purpose was not to redefine or create another hierarchy of what constitutes an evidence-based practice vs. a promising practice or emerging practice, but rather to compile a comprehensive list of interventions or programs that have been...

  • More Than One Gap: Dropout Rate Gaps Between and Among Black, Hispanic, and White Students

    1/1/07 - Carpenter Ii, Dick M., Ramirez, Al

    The achievement gap, traditionally measured by test scores, also can be documented by dropout behavior. Examining dropout behavior among Black, White, and Hispanic students, with a particular focus on gaps within groups and not just between Whites and minorities, shows a clearer picture of the achievement gap. The results of our study show multiple achievement gaps both between and within groups, ultimately concluding that within-group gaps were often more significant than gaps between...

  • Physical Activity, Obesity, and the Academic Achievement Gap in Minority Children

    1/1/08 - Johnson, Ingrid L.

    A review of recent studies on obesity, academic achievement, and physical activity is provided. The studies revealed that many children, especially from minority populations, do not engage in the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity per day, which conceivably contributes to overweight and obesity, especially in minority children to whom the No Child Left Behind Act is primarily directed; there is a significant and positive link between physical activity and weight control; and there...

  • Schools, achievement, and inequality: a seasonal perspective

    1/1/01 - Alexander, Karl L., Entwisle, Doris R., Olson, Linda S.

    Are there socioeconomic differences in the seasonality of children's learning over the school year and summer months? The achievement gap across social lines increases during the primary grades, as much research indicates, but descriptive analyses and HLM within-person growth models for a representative panel of Baltimore school children demonstrate that the increase can be traced mainly to the out-of-school environment (i.e., influences situated in home and community). School-year verbal...
