  • PLS Title Interventions can reduce school exclusion but the effect is temporary
  • PLS Description School exclusion is associated with undesirable effects on developmental outcomes. It increases the likelihood of poor academic performance, antisocial behavior, and poor employment prospects. This school sanction disproportionally affects males, ethnic minorities, those who come from disadvantaged economic backgrounds, and those with special educational needs. This review assesses the effectiveness of programmes to reduce the prevalence of exclusion
  • Title School-based interventions for reducing disciplinary school exclusion
  • Spanish PLS Algunas intervenciones para reducir la exclusión escolar funcionan, pero su efecto es temporal
  • Spanish PLS Description La exclusión escolar se asocia con efectos no deseados en el desarrollo de los niños. Estudios previos muestran una asociación consistente entre la exclusión y el bajo rendimiento académico, conducta antisocial y dificultades de inserción en el mercado laboral. Esta sanción afecta de manera desproporcionada a los varones, a las minorías étnicas, a aquellos que provienen de ambientes socioeconómicos deprivados y también a los estudiantes con necesidades educativas especiales. Esta revisión sistemática analiza la efectividad de los programas de intervención para reducir la prevalencia de la exclusión escolar.

  • PLS Title Later school start times may produce benefits for students but more evidence is needed
  • PLS Description Later school start times have been implemented around the world as a means of avoiding the potentially negative impacts that early morning schedules can have on adolescent students. Even mild sleep deprivation has been associated with significant health and educational concerns: increased risk for accidents and injuries, impaired learning, aggression, memory loss, poor self-esteem, and changes in metabolism. This review examines the effects of later start times on these outcomes.

  • Spanish PLS Las jornadas escolares que inician más tarde pueden beneficiar a los estudiantes, aunque se necesita mayor evidencia
  • Spanish PLS Description En todo el mundo se han implementado jornadas escolares que inician más tarde como una forma para evitar los impactos potencialmente negativos de los programas de actividades de primera hora de la mañana sobre los estudiantes adolescentes. La privación del sueño, aun cuando sea leve, se asocia a importantes inquietudes en el área de la salud y la educación: mayor riesgo de accidentes y lesiones, problemas de aprendizaje, agresividad, pérdida de memoria, baja autoestima y cambios en el metabolismo. Esta revisión examina los efectos que las jornadas escolares que inician más tarde tienen sobre estos resultados.
