Seventy-three percent of Americans support the concept of charter schools. The short story is that charter schools work, and are an asset to a public education system that is slow to embrace innovation despite an ever-changing and increasingly global world.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Americans are fans of fantasy and myth—the resounding success of franchises like Twilight and Harry Potter offer strong evidence to support this claim. But when it comes to our education system, Americans must learn to distinguish fact from fiction.

This is especially true of our nation’s charter schools. Despite the fact that over 2.5 million children are served by over 6,500 charter schools across the country, the majority of Americans have been swayed by tall tales and misinformation about the role of charter schools in our public education system.

Diabetes is responsible for a long list of complications, including blindness, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, amputations and premature death. Since 1980, diabetes cases have more than tripled nationally to 20.9 million. In California alone, diabetes cases have increased by 35 percent in ten years

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Patients with diabetes account for one in three hospitalizations in California, according to a comprehensive new study on the prevalence of diabetes in hospitals and its impact on providers and spiraling health care costs.

The study of hospital discharge records conducted by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research with support from the California Center for Public Health Advocacy (CCPHA), found that among all hospitalized California patients aged 35 or older (the age group that accounts for most hospitalizations), 31 percent had diabetes. Although diabetes may not be the initial reason for these hospitalizations, the disproportionate share of patients with diabetes highlights the impact this disease is having on California’s health care costs.
