Marijuana is going mainstream. Illicit drug use has been rising gradually since 2006, and most of this, according to the Monitor the Future Survey 2013, is due to increased use of marijuana by college students. In fact, four out of 10 college students admit to illicit drug use, and daily or near daily use of marijuana by college students is at its highest rate in more than three decades.
Each year, more than 46
million children play team sports and over 1.3 million children suffer sports-related
injuries. In fact, one in five emergency room visits for kids are due to sports
injuries. It’s no surprise that K-12 athletic injuries are some of the most
common claims at United Educators (UE). This presentation offers
recommendations on keeping young athletes safe and analyzes several studies on
the national youth athletic claims landscape, including a recent 10-year claims
study by UE.
UE reviewed our 2014 discrimination statistics after the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) released a summary of employment discrimination charges it received last year.
