The following is a summary regarding a research study on the non-medical personnel assigned to care for Type I diabetic students in the state of Virginia public school system in the absence of a registered nurse following a legislative bill passed in the Senate in 1999.
The research conducted in 2005 and released in 2007 (Hellems & Clarke 2007) was implemented with questions regarding care of non-medical staff and whether that care provided was sufficient.

The research study was approved by the Virginia Intuitional review board with names of the children, the grade, and date of birth as the indicator for data collection purposes. There was no reference as to how this information was protected once collected. The qualitative data collected consisted of interviews with the parents on who was the actual caregiver of their child while in school, as well as whether their child participated in their own care.
The quantitative data collected included the above data on the children as well as the following; 185 participants attending 153 schools in Virginia utilizing cross referenced methods.

Interest in this topic mainly are generated due to the decline in the public school system. As a parent of a current ninth grader I am saddend by the issues that children have to deal with in order to receive public education. Home schooling is defined as, ‘an education that is provided outside a ‘normal' school environment’. This type of education has undergone numerous debates, raising questions as to whether or not it is an effective educational program. Many people are equally divided between the pros and the cons, with people arguing that home schooling offers many benefits for children and others arguing that it affects children’s social skills and education. If the opportunity arose home schooling is an option I would consider home schooling for my current student. Acamdemic Schedule Home school students learning environments are more structured for the individual student. This is a comfortability level that can not be offered in public school.

Home School Versus Public School

...Homeschool VS Public School Shawn Banks University of Composition and Communication COM/ 155 February 19, 2012 Cari Kenner The issue of homeschooling versus public education has been an ongoing debate for a very long time. The decision between the two forms of education has plagued parents for an equal amount of time as well. For some parents, the choice is easy because the options are limited by funds and availability of the parent’s time. Academic environment can be an issue for some parents. There are also several health and safety concerns that parents must face too. One of the biggest concerns that parents contend with is the overwhelming difference in the social aspect between homeschooling and public education. Granted that both can accommodate a quality education to its students, there are many differences between homeschooling and a public education. For the most part, homeschooling your children are reasonably inexpensive. With the Internet, parents can get the curriculum for the grade level of the child for free. There are plenty of websites that offer this service. This leaves the price tag for the supplies that the child will need. If these are bought by bulk during the July/August back-to-school season, parents can save a ton of money. By doing these things the cost for homeschooling a child would be under fifty dollars per child. Public school, on the other hand, in some cases is quite different. Public schools across the country......

Home School vs Public School

...Home School vs Public School Sondra Silverberg Essentials of Sociology Everest University Online Prof. Pamela Collins December 15, 2012 It’s 1845 an aristocratic gentleman and his wife are about to leave in their horse drawn carriage only to return in a few days. Their two daughters are preparing for their lesson with their teacher who resides in the home. Although, somewhat unheard of, this family made an exception and allowed their teacher to move into the home. During the pre-1850’s many children were educated in private schools or at home. In larger communities and towns grammar schools were readily available, attendance was not a forced issue and the parents had a right to choose how their children were educated without question or judgment. Today of course it seems odd to hear of a child being homeschooled although, with events such as Columbine and the incidents of December 14th, 2012 it really makes a parent ask the question is homeschooling a safer alternative to public schools? Are public schools living up to their expectations, or is homeschooling going to become a much needed option? Finally, after my research and further readings is this something that I should consider for my children? Columbine occurred when I was in my eighth grade year, then it was, “twelve students one teacher, and the murders were dead; plus twenty-one were injured” (Rosenberg). That was scary in itself; I remember thinking could this happen here? Schools started integrating......

...The single sex schools shapes the society A few years ago, when I was looking at middle schools for my daughter, I heard about a school that sounded lovely except for one thing: it had a policy of separating math classes by gender. (Talbot).This quote was the opening for the article “The Case against Single-Sex Classrooms”. The author over looked the advantages and the disadvantages of considering placing her children either in co-ed schools or single sex schools. As a parent, she had made her decision based on the single sex policies that attracted many parents. For instance, she had believed that the schools policies of teaching boys and girls in separate classes encourages segregation, it made it very difficult for her to explain it to her children, and encourage gender stereotypes . For the past decades parents made their decisions of considering co-ed or single gender schools based on their own beliefs or personal preferences. The parent’s alternative perspective passed from generation to another. In many cases, Females or males who attended public school prefers the same for their children and so is the parent who had attended the separate gender schools. This represents a clash between these alternative perspectives in our society for decades. Although, single sex school had been existing for years, these schools offer more negativity in shaping the next generation of our society in the wrong direction because it encourages segregation, doesn’t......

Home School vs. Public School

...Homeschool or Public School? By: Savanah Anthony Date: November 1, 2013 Back in the day parents decided to send their children to public schools for many different reasons. Some of these reasons are to build their children's social skills, to get their children out of the house, to give their children the education they did not have growing up. Because parents use to send their children to public school, public school is all some parents now even know, but home school education is on the rise. Since 1999 the number of home schooled children has increased by 75%. There are many reasons for this increase. Some of these reasons being a child's social skills, test scores and even violence. Parents only want what is best for their children, but they need to decide whether a public school education or a home school education is best. One statement most people make when choosing public school over home school is that their children will develop better social skills being around people their own age. This statement could not be more wrong. When children are attending public school they are put through social test by their peers to gain social status; also known as popularity. If a child passes these social test he or she has a high status, but if he or she fails these awkward encounters they are considered losers or loners. Children who hold a high social status tend to enjoy going to school, but those with a low social status dread going to school......

Charter Schools and Traditional public schools both have a profound effect on our students in many different ways but charter schools have much more of an effective way to get our Children not only through school but also through college. A large sum of students that have attended Charter schools have gone on to college receiving a 3.0 or higher. The Impact that education in Charter schools that have a college prep program is much more effective in student success than Public school education. Charter schools are publicly funded institutions that operate under their own standards of conduct and curriculum. Although these institutions are funded by tax dollars, charter schools are ultimately given the freedom to establish their own methods of operation, similar to how private schools are able to operate their instructional and social practices. Various studies and statistics reveals that students who come from lower-income families or students that are English language learners revealed higher success and performance rates in charter schools than in public school. According to the DC fiscal policy institute, the median proficiency level at the 43 charter schools studied rose from 44.2 to 50.2 percent from 2008 to 2012, while it fell from 40.4 to 36.7 percent at the 109 public schools.

Home School or Public School

...Public School or Home School? Education is the key to reach success in life. People gain an education since they were a child with their parents for example how to speak, eat, walk and also how to read and count the number. Parents give their child as best as they can do, moreover for education. I believe all parents desire to spend much money in education for their kids brighter future. And when children become of age to go to school, many parents confuse to choose the right education for their kids. Nowadays there are two popular ways to gain an education; public school and Home school. Public school is school that build by government for their citizens, it is the most afordable for all kind of citizens. Besides that there is another way to gain education which is home school. Home schooling is not a new phenomenon, but a very old one. In Colonial days, families, including wealthy ones, educated their children at home, combining the efforts of parents, tutors, and older children (Hill,T,P, 2000). Home scholl usually built by private institution. The tuition fee is way more expensive than public school, because mostly home school provides private teacher for their students. The most popular is public school rather than home school. But those two options make many parents confuse to choose wich is better home schooling or public schooling. Some people believe public school is better in curriculum for their children but others think in home school is more focus in......

The parent’s make their decision based upon the school district that they live in. Some public schools do not have up to date materials. There are certain public schools that have a more difficult curriculum, which challenges students academically. Parents want what is best for their children’s education, public or homeschooled. Public-schools give children a chance to make lifelong friends and homeschooling is more hands on learning. One of the most important things to a parent is their child’s learning environment. Homeschooling his or her child or children will give the parent the opportunity to control his or her learning environment. By doing so parents are ensuring that nothing tragic would happen. Homeschooling is a parent who teaches his or her child or children. The parent is going to give positive feed back to their child or children. There are fewer home schooled students in a classroom than there are in a public classroom. Homeschooling has more positive influences. They do not have bullies or feel pressure from trying to fit in certain groups in school or the clothes and shoes they wear. By not acquiring those things homeschooled students have a relaxed learning environment that has the advantage of the......

Home School Versus Public School

...Public School versus Home School In the world that we have today we seem to have more options than we had in the past. One of those choices is the choice between home school and public school. Several factors can be involved when making this decision. One might ask his or herself; which choice of school is better? Public school is more effective than homeschooling because it allows children to communicate with each other and guides them in the right direction concerning their grades. As I previously said, there are many factors that should be looked at thoroughly in order to make a final decision on your choice of school. One of those factors would be self-discipline. Self-discipline is the action in which you are able to discipline yourself to complete tasks when needed too without anyone helping you. Self-discipline is sometimes hard to have especially as a child or young adult. It is not something that comes easy; it has to be worked on for some time. In order to succeed at home school, self-discipline is something that must be made. There will be many times that students will have assignments that need to be completed, but there are other things that the student really wants to do. If you do not have self-discipline, then you are not going to be able to accomplish the necessary things needed in order to succeed in home school. Public school is not as much of a challenge because you have an adult there to push you and get you motivated to succeed at all times.......

...stance. Such articles, unfortunately (for your assignment, at least), are based on mere myths--some of which have been expressed right HERE by some of your responders. To wit: A) quote:“Home schooled people [will] be passed over for someone that has been through a school that has testing standards as well as requirments (sic) and guidlines (sic) for the teachers them selves.” Wrong. Homeschooled students consistently outperform public school students on standardized tests. [http://www.academicleadership.org/empric... and elsewhere] Moreover, it is no secret that our public schools are failing and that we are far behind other industrialized nations in academic achievement. See: Public High Schools Failing: Colleges Now Spend Billions On Remedial Classes For Freshmen http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2... http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=YmJ...

B) quote: “It is also not likely that a home schooled person would ever get into a college other than a tech school with out some type of back ground in a school that tracks your grades and accomplishments.” Wrong again.

Home School vs Public School

...Renooka Alummoottil Engl 1302-45400 Dr. Shazia Ali July 1, 2013 Home School vs Public School Education When it comes to education, the choice on what form of education is best for a child should be of the utmost importance to parents. In order to choose the best education environment for a child, certain matters have to be taken into consideration. Parents need to be educated on the advantages and disadvantages of both public and home school education. Having all the information would enable them to make the best decision for their child’s education. One type of academic setting may be suitable for some children and not others. “In 2007, the number of homeschooled students was about 1.5 million, an increase from 850,000 in 1999 and 1.1 million in 2003. The percentage of the school-age population that was homeschooled increased from 1.7 percent in 1999 to 2.9 percent in 2007. The increase in the percentage of homeschooled students from 1999 to 2007 represents a 74 percent relative increase over the 8-year period and a 36 percent relative increase since 2003” (U.S. Department of Education). These facts support the view that the trend of parents moving to educate their children at home is more beneficial to the child. Because each child is different and may have different needs, they would benefit from an individualized attention setting in order to grow and thrive which cannot be provided by the public school system. If a child is in a setting that is not suitable for......

Instead parents seem to say it’s the public school system or the private school system that doesn’t work with there child correctly.

Home School vs Public School

...Home School vs Public Education Most Americans do not home-school their children. However, those who do, certainly have good reasons. There are advocates on both sides of this educational issue, it is important to understand why some parents choose to home-school their children. Although both can provide a quality education to its students, a student can learn in a social environment therefore leading to his/her overall development. One of the many reasons that home school parents feel passionate about home schooling is their religious beliefs. Since religion is no longer permitted in the public school system, many home-school parents feel that their children have been short-changed in this area. It is their wish to raise their children in an environment that not only allows religion but also embraces it. Having deep religion beliefs, parents who home-school for religious reasons are said to be very passionate people. It is this passion that feeds their children’s educational needs. With the parent in charge, home-schooling can be based solely on religious activities if the parent so chooses. It is also this passion that will allow the parents to teach their children to the best of their abilities. Home-schooling allows the parent to be in charge. Another reason the public school system appears to have allowed a stereotype to be attached to home-schooled children is socialization. This stereotype suggests that home-schooled children are confined rather than social. In......
