Topic Information

Dear Colleagues,

The educational and health development of children and youths is in fact susceptible to the impacts of various cultural, environmental, and individual contexts simultaneously. These contexts include religion and spirituality in the cultural domain; society, school, and family in the environmental domain; and personality and behavioural choices in the individual domain, all of which have profound and interactive effects on the educational and health development of children and youths. Educational development is defined as academic performance, learning motivations, and the educational paths of children and youths; health development refers to the physical and mental health of children and youths. The ways in which different contexts contribute to the development of children and youths separately and simultaneously deserve further research. Moreover, the mechanisms formed by the impacts of these contexts in relation to the educational and health development of children and youths need greater scrutinization through sophisticated research. The current topic titled “Educational and Health Development of Children and Youths” focuses on the contributions, processes, and/or interactions of the cultural, social, school, family, and individual contexts in relation to child and youth development. This topic welcomes empirical research and review papers examining how the different contexts contribute to the educational and health development of children and youths. Papers collected under this topic are expected to have practical values for educators, human service practitioners, and health professionals for positive child and youth development.
