This issue of The Forum includes a variety of articles of special interest to the educator. Two articles show the need for and descriptions of the impacts of programs developed by Cooperative Extension professionals that can be used by educators in all states. Two articles describe the relationships between parent and child in specific situations and settings. Two articles focus on researching 2 critical issues: one being the limited intake of energy, fruit, vegetables, and vegetables and dairy products among children eating at public elementary schools and the other being a review of the literature on marital dissolution in terms of the immediate and extended consequences of divorce for women.
It is my hope and opinion that you will gain knowledge, resources, and ideas from these articles to assist you in your endeavors. Enjoy!
