In other circumstances are only able to pay college for one member of the family. Public universities are the cheapest universities, but not all students have a chance to get into the university, thus they cannot study.

...American Psychological Association 0012-1649/10/$12.00 DOI: 10.1037/a0021379 The Impact of School-Based Mentoring on Youths With Different Relational Profiles Sarah E. O. Schwartz, Jean E. Rhodes, and Christian S. Chan University of Massachusetts Boston Carla Herrera Public/Private Ventures, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Associations between youths’ relationship profiles and mentoring outcomes were explored in the context of a national, randomized study of 1,139 youths (54% female) in geographically diverse Big Brothers Big Sisters school-based mentoring programs. The sample included youths in Grades 4 –9 from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, the majority of whom were receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Latent profile analysis, a person-oriented approach, was used to identify 3 distinct relational profiles. Mentoring was found to have differential effects depending on youths’ preintervention approach to relationships. In particular, youths who, at baseline, had satisfactory, but not particularly strong, relationships benefited more from mentoring than did youths with profiles characterized by either strongly positive or negative relationships. Implications for research and practice are discussed. Keywords: youth mentoring, parent relationships, teacher relationships, latent profile analysis Youth mentoring programs such as Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) pair youths with volunteers who are trained to provide support and guidance.

Understanding Why Students Drop Out of High School, According to Their Own Reports
...Understanding Why Students Drop Out of High School, According to Their Own Reports Are They Pushed or Pulled, or Do They Fall Out? A Comparative Analysis of Seven Nationally Representative Studies Abstract Research on school dropout extends from early 20th-century pioneers until now, marking trends of causes and prevention. However, specific dropout causes reported by students from several nationally representative studies have never been examined together, which, if done, could lead to a better understanding of the dropout problem. Push, pull, and falling out factors provide a framework for understanding dropouts. Push factors include school-consequence on attendance or discipline. Pull factors include out-of-school enticements like jobs and family. Finally, falling out factors refer to disengagement in students not caused by school or outside pulling factors. Since 1966, most nationally representative studies depicted pull factors as ranking the highest. Also, administrators in one study corroborated pull out factors for younger dropouts, not older ones, while most recent research cites push factors as highest overall. One rationale for this change is a response to rising standards from No Child Left Behind (NCLB), which can be ultimately tested only by future dropout research. education social sciences academics disparities educational measurement and assessment history and sociology of education Introduction The cause of a student dropping out is often termed......

Why Youth Aging Out of Foster Care Needs Support
...Running head: WHY YOUTH AGING OUT OF FOSTER CARE NEEDS SUPPORT? 1 Why youth aging out of foster care needs support? Antoinette Knowlton Strayer University Critical Thinking PHI 210 Dr. Ed Yancy March 16, 2013 WHY YOUTH AGING OUT OF FOSTER CARE NEEDS SUPPORT? 2 Why youth aging out of foster care needs support? Can you imagine today is your 18th birthday and you have no biological family to give you heartfelt happy birthday wishes and hugs? No one there to give you the “you’re eighteen years old today now what are you going to do with your life speech”. Can you imagine coming to the realization that you’re on your own now. Not even the government is responsible for you anymore. You’re now a member of a group that most don’t think about. You’re aging out of foster care. In 2005, 24,407 youth did what’s known as “aged out” of foster care. Aging out of foster care means youth between the age of 18 and 23 is no longer receiving state care without being reunited with their families nor adopted before leaving care (Collins, Clay & Ward, 2008). This represents an increase of 41% since 1998. Now it’s over 25,000 a year of youth aging out of foster care (US Department of Health and Human Services, 2006). It’s all on you to decide what road you will travel. But, how do you determine your route towards your destiny. This can be a very scary and intimidating time for these youth as they transition from the......

Crime Participation of Students and Out-of-School Youth in Barangay Sta. Catalina
...misbehavior deterrence among the youth. Theoretical Framework Numerous theories tried to explain many factors causing juvenile crimes or juvenile delinquency. One of which is Robert Merton’s Strain Theory. Strain theory holds that crime is caused by the difficulty those in poverty have in achieving socially valued goals by legitimate means, making poverty the reason to commit crime. Another theory that juveniles turn to crime is the differential theory. The theory of Differential association also deals with young people in a group context, and looks at how peer pressure and the existence of gangs could lead them into crime. It suggests young people are motivated to commit crimes by delinquent peers, and learn criminal skills from them. The diminished influence of peers after men marry has also been cited as a factor in desisting from offending. There is strong evidence that young people with criminal friends are more likely to commit crimes themselves. However it may be the case that offenders prefer to associate with one another, rather than delinquent peers causing someone to start offending. Furthermore there is the question of how the delinquent peer group became delinquent initially (Wikipedia, 2014). These two theories are enough reasons to conduct these study to assess whether students and out-of-school youth of Barangay Sta. Catalina has crime participation. Conceptual Framework In this study “Participations of Students and Out-of-School Youth of Barangay......

Understanding Why Students Drop Out of High School
...Understanding Why Students Drop Out of High School Even though the percentage of students that achieve graduation has increased during the past hundred years, dropping out of school persist as a problem that interferes with the future of our society. Dropping out is defined as leaving school early without achieving a diploma. Many students feel that dropping out is the best option when facing personal or academic difficulties and for them school attendance becomes a burdensome responsibility. The reasons contributing to student’s decision to leave school are varied but, some of the major factors for dropping out in our community include: Academic difficulty and failure, lack of interest in learning, and pregnancy and parenthood at young age. Struggling in school and failing classes are some of the main reasons students leave school before graduating. Students who receive poor grades, who repeat a grade, or who are over-age for their class are more likely to drop out. Students who have difficulty understanding any particular subject, failing tests, who are behind school assignments, and have low attendance, usually are at high risk to give up school before graduation. Another key aspect that is consistently cited as a factor that influences a student choice to give up school and achieve graduation is the lack of motivation and apathy to learn and attend school. These students often state that the subjects are not interesting, that they have bad relationships with teachers......

Bullies Should Be Kicked Out of Schools
...constant problem in schools today. People sometimes say that bullies are ignorant kids, but they are criminals and they steal other people’s self-esteem. First of all, bullying is a crime, and it can have serious effects on an individual. Bullies harass, make threats, terrorize, and use verbal and physical abuse on their victims. The old saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” isn’t necessarily true; words do hurt. They may not hurt physically but if a kid already has insecurities, bullies make it worse. It is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students. A frequently asked question by many is why do teenagers bully? In a lot of cases, teens who bully can be in bad home environments. They can be verbally or physically abused at home, and anger and sadness gradually builds inside of them. They find a way to take it out on people, and they usually take it out on people who they know won't stand up to them. That’s why you see a lot of bullies pick on the quiet people who appear to have low self-esteem. Bullies build up on the insecurities of children and insult their different qualities. Though it doesn’t happen often, bullying can end in a tragic death. A British study reported 44% of suicides occurring in kids 10 to 14 was caused by bullying. Those bullied often remain silent until the emotional trauma is eventually no longer tolerable. Our schools should not allow......
