HealthTeacher measures outcomes through benchmarking in four ways:
The 2010 survey demonstrated 83.9 percent overall teacher satisfaction and 72.4 percent enhancement in teachers’ personal knowledge of health. It also showed 51.5 percent noticed improvement in students’ health knowledge, and improved connectedness with teachers and students by 77.9 percent.
HealthTeacher is committed to education, outreach and the promotion of health literacy in their communities. Their support for children’s health extends beyond the pages of their website. An example of this is their work as the founding partner of the Blue Apple Awards which recognizes exceptional school health programs.
