Education Outcomes for Youth in Foster Care Article Review

… Foster Care and Education

Educational Outcomes for Youth in Foster Care

The importance of this issue for social workers -- vis-a-vis the educational achievements of at-risk individuals and the overall, ongoing need for an educated, productive society -- is reflected in the fact that an estimated 800,00 youth are living in foster care environments annually in the U.S. -- and of those, 16,000 leave their foster care homes "as young adults" (Williams, et al., p. 500). Moreover, children in foster care are "one of the most educationally vulnerable populations" in U.S. schools (Zetlin, et al., 2006, p. 268). Without a good education, foster care youth are too often destined for a life of poverty and pain.

Cultural Issues and Clinical Teaching

Most people become very nervous when they are in need of health care, but for those who are not familiar with the way things happen in hospitals, or do not speak the same language as those trying to care for them; it can be a bewildering and frightening time.

Some of the obvious differences that can occur between a health care provider and a patient include: religion, ethnicity or race, national origin or language and gender. Some of the not so obvious differences include: age, education, educational status and mobility including handicaps (Cultural Diversity and Health Care, n.d.).

A good example of a cultural…. [read more]

Legislative Letter Term Paper

… Legislative Letter

Dear Representative Boucher

I would like to thank you for your concern for our nation's health and the care that is being provided. I am writing today to urge you to support Affordable Health Care for America Act, H.R. 3962. This legislation will extend health insurance coverage to millions of uninsured persons, thereby helping to ensure that most Americans have quality, affordable coverage.

It will require most employers to share in the responsibility for financing health care coverage, either by providing coverage directly to their workers or by contributing a meaningful amount to pay for most of the costs of their coverage. It will provide substantial subsidies to help make coverage more affordable for middle income families, and expand Medicaid to guarantee that…. [read more]

Community Health Strategies Thesis

… ¶ … Disease Control and Prevention ( reports that about 50 million people (that is one in five Americans) are living with "at least one disability." Moreover, the CDC claims that "most Americans" at some time in their lives will suffer a disability. As to how the CDC reached the average of one in five, the United States Healthy People 2010 Plan ("Objective 6-1") used two standardized questions to identify those who are disabled. Those who answered "yes" to the question, "Are you limited in any way in any activities because of physical, mental, or emotional problems?" And the question, "Do you now have any health problem that requires you to use special equipment…a cane, a wheelchair, a special bed or a special telephone?" were…. [read more]
