The overall look does not look promising for the state of health care in the United States. Currently there are over thousands unfilled nursing positions across the country, and by 2012 a number expected to reach is 1.1 million. Therefore, more new jobs are expected to be created for register nurses than for any other occupation. Many effects may occur in this situation, from students changing their major to adults already
* The field is ripe for conducting larger-scale randomized trials. Key Trends in the Current Correctional Education Landscape * The 2008 recession led to an overall 6 percent decrease in states' correctional education budgets between fiscal years 2009 and 2012, but it had a much larger impact on states with large and medium prison populations (a 20 and 10 percent decrease, respectively). * Most states reported using computers in correctional education, but student access to the Internet or Internet-based instruction was limited in most states. * Of the states planning to implement the more rigorous 2014 General Education Development (GED) exam that relies on computer-based testing, there are concerns about teachers being adequately prepared to teach it and about the time it may take to prepare students for it, as well as about the negative effect on GED completion rates. Medium and large states are expected to encounter more challenges.

“Timmy be quite! Don’t throw that in the classroom! Please stop talking!” Yelling everywhere, that would be the typical dialogue of a teacher, in a regular sized class, and now, schools are trying to include a greater number of students in their classroom! According to the Just Education Magazine of April, 2007, 65% of schools are crowded! If they do succeed, in adding more students in my class, many shifts would occur, less working space, even more disturbances,(as if they didn’t have enough in my class with the amount of kids there) and grades would drop, instantaneously.
The benefits of having no homework to do when you come in from a draining day of school are endless, so why in this day and age do we still make such a big deal of it? A ban on issuing homework would increase the amount of time pupils have to do other activities outside of school. I have experienced firsthand that homework takes up a lot of time leaving less free time for pupils to participate in sports and to be active. With growing child obesity here in the UK a child being able to have at least 60 minutes of exercise each day is becoming increasingly more important. Other important parts of childhood including building bonds with family and friends are overlooked when it comes to the importance of school and education but have an equally important outcome on a young person’s life.
Physical abuse involves physical aggression directed at a child by an adult. Three year old Nia was an example of this. Over a three week period she was kicked, beaten, held over a fire, put into a spinning clothes dryer, thrown against walls, dropped on the floor, and hung off a clothes line. Although you may think this is a very uncommon situation, it’s not as uncommon as it should be. In 2009 16 children died in New Zealand because of abuse by their own family members.

Not unexpectedly, abuse or neglect by others accounts for over half of recorded instances of maltreatment.
