uld be right. Where did you get that from?
If we could get a Health Insurance or to transfer ours from one state to another, we could do research on the patient outcome and pich up a Hospital , which does the best job.
You may be forgetting that 2 trillion will come out of our pockets on top of everything, unless something will be sacrificed or more dollars will be printed out as it is now. Am I right?
ervices so that children and families have their basic living and health needs met as well as support to develop the family and community relationships and cultures that promote and support education.
Instructional technology holds much promise to help individualize education for students, but it requires significant professional development for teachers. Begin by giving every teacher in every classroom the technology tools, training, time, and support needed to utilize technology to engage, motivate, and individualize learning for students. Bridge the digital divide by providing last-mile broadband connectivity to the most rural schools.…
only one person, the students interact with 3. If they are all working at their own computers at their own pace, one teacher can work with gifted, another with average, and the third with slow. My feeling is that everyone is useful for something. Right now we do not have enough new creative jobs to employ 95% of the people who are willing and able to work. In some cases health care has been an issue, a barrier, to disabled or older people with diabetes, high blood pressure, weight issues, etc. I think we can resolve much of this with the Affordable Health Care that starts to take place 2014.…
d OS1. I am not knocking Bill Gates, He is a Philanthropist, and seems to be an honorable man. I just want to demonstrate that "success" has its connections.
There is no doubt in my mind that "we" can provide and afford health care to all of the people in the US. When I was a kid,1950's, we had a US Public Health Service Hospital on Staten Island, NY. I do not know if it was free, all of my relatives who were adults then have passed on. However, when money was tight, my mom would bring us there for physicals, vacinations and examinations. This facility closed in the mid 1960's.
As a Pharmacist form 1976 to 2001, I observed the transformation of Insurance from providing catastrophic coverage to managing all care services. Their business expanded and was mandated by State Medical Insurance Boards. I had the first hand knowledge of escalating pharmaceutical costs. There was no consumer resistance to the price of medications, they were paying a co-pay. There are life saving drugs and there are "symptom" drugs. We can all justify he costs of drugs the save or sustain life, but prescription cold medicines or allergy medicines were overpriced.
Here are two examples from the year 2000.
Claritin cost me $3.00 for each pill. If a customer had to pay out of pocket for 30 Claritin becouse of a runny nose, they would say "NO THANKS! What do you have over the counter?"
Nasalide, a nasal spray for allergies, cost $75.00 a bottle. The response would be the same!
The reason that these two items cost so much was simple. Nobody paid out of pocket for them.
Health Care Plans also made inside deals for preferred drug coverage, despite the cost.
Remember what I said about Board of Director membership, I had a neighbor who was he president of a small pharmaceutical research firm. He had 15 Board of Director seats in varuious Health Care Companies. He was a nice guy. This is how the system works.
In the 1930's, Will Rodgers had numerous popular quotes on the corruption in government, they are all still true.

Language in Which You Will Present: English
Target Audience(s): classroom teachers and leaders in schools
Short Session Description (one line):
A session on the importance of SEL (social emotional learning) in schools.
Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
There is a global mental health emergency. Too many children reach adolescence without the social emotional intelligence to support them through the most turbulent stage of their development into adulthood. Too many are choosing death. As teachers and leaders of schools we have the power and responsibility to take action. Prevention and early intervention is not just for the medical professionals. We are on the front-line; we need to fully understand and embrace the concept that the mental health of our students takes priority over the traditional numeracy and literacy lessons. I will share my journey to this realisation, present to you my goals for the future and explain why you should join me in my quest.
