Plan to train more dental students in regional dental education, which currently has two colleges in the U.S. but is looking for more. “It’s kind of the ultimate American dream,” says Shain, the dental assistant, referring to the need for more dental education programs throughout the country. “It’s a very good thing that the students are all over the place from California to Vermont, from Connecticut to New Jersey.”
The first step is identifying dental school areas and areas where they’re growing the fastest—such as urban areas with high proportions of dentists who come from the West Coast, or areas with small schools with a disproportionately high number of dentists from other backgrounds. In rural counties, there’s an obvious preference for Southern residents in dentistry, which may explain why there were fewer dental schools from there in 1999 than there were in 2008.
The next step is to track the growth in each state, and look for trends, including graduation rates for new students, and what’s going on in schools across their borders. “We need mor바카라e data out there in a lot of different ways, particularly within the U.S., to understand trends, why things are moving in the right direction in certain regions and why things aren’t moving at all in other regions,” says Shain. For example, is there a greater emphasis on dental education in areas where dentists and dentists-as-trainees are needed? Is there increased competition for positions?
This brings us to data collection: dental school enrollment isn’t as important as how students are performing academically, according to the 2011 American Dental Student Board of Trustees’ annual report. The report states: “The school’s performanatyasastra.comnce on state assessments correlates significantly to student status.”
Teachers are the people who really can be a driving force in learning outcomes.
But just because the number of students from different backgrounds increases for schools, does that mean the students who went to those schools are graduating? Or does it just mean more children of the same ethnic or linguistic background are graduating?
“The first step is identifying the highest performing school, then comparing that school to one in other states that do a similar education system and they find a similar education results,” says Shain. “But you can tell from comparing the percentage of those who graduate from those schools that if you compare that state to another state and we can find simila우리카지노r performance levels.”
If dentists are the teachers, then schools that have larger numbers of dentists can help students with certain learning needs, including reading
