Preschool Teacher Depression Linked to Behavioral Problems in Children

Written by Featured Organization on Wednesday, 21 May 2014 13:01.

Study suggests unhealthy classroom climate is contributing factor 
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Depression in preschool teachers is associated with behavioral problems ranging from aggression to sadness in children under the teachers’ care, new research suggests. The study identified one contributing factor to this link: a poor-quality atmosphere in the child care setting that exists as a result of the teacher’s depressive symptoms. In this study, “teacher” refers to both classroom instructors and in-home child care providers. Researchers conducted the study using data from a large national study that collected family information primarily from low-income, single-mother households.

9 Worst Things Rich People Do to Me When I Clean Their Houses

Written by Featured Organization on Monday, 19 May 2014 11:58.

TRAVIS HOLT, JOHN TRAVIS HOLT rich people The following story first appeared on xojane.com.  I've worked as a housecleaner to supplement my income for over a decade in Manhattan. Over the years I've experienced everything from a celebrity trying to pay me with a bounced check to a woman giving me a microwave she said she no longer needed only to call me a week later and ask for me to bring it back to her. (Which I did, even though it took me an hour to get to her by bus.) When I arrive, I do so with a smile and cleaning supplies,  expecting to put in a hard day's work. What I get is often hours of psychological games where clients will do everything they can just to try to save themselves $10 or $20. Sorry, but buying me a cup of coffee does not mean you get an extra two hours of work for free.

New WWC Quick Review on study of the Kalamazoo Promise Scholarship

Written by Featured Organization on Sunday, 18 May 2014 14:46.

The study examined the impact of the Kalamazoo Promise Scholarship on high school students’ academic and behavioral outcomes. Depending on how long the student had attended Kalamazoo Public Schools (KPS), the scholarship would cover up to 100 percent of tuition and fees for attending any public college or university in the state of Michigan. The authors hypothesized that the promise of such a scholarship might have an effect on students’ high school outcomes. The study focused on students who attended KPS schools from ninth grade through graduation. The authors compared the differences in academic and behavioral outcomes in high school before and after introduction of the Promise Scholarship for students who would be eligible to receive it (if they were accepted to a public Michigan college or university) and those who would not (because they had not attended school in the district for long enough to qualify).
