Abstract: The Controlled Substances Act is the current law of the land for Federal drug policies. This law places drugs into schedules based on their abuse potential and their medicinal benefits. Unfortunately, according to the criteria set out by the Controlled Substances Act, many drugs have been scheduled incorrectly. The misclassifications of these drugs can lead to problems within the criminal justice system, especially in an overuse of incarceration for low-risk substances. Thus, it is crucial for the U.S. to ensure that all drugs are scheduled appropriately.

Abstract: Key Words: Parents, Scheduled Tribes, Non Scheduled Tribes, Family, Social Attitudes, Social Background, Values etc.

In the traditional Indian society education was not open to everybody but was ascribed to certain caste. As such the parents had no choice in deciding what education should be given to their children. It was decided by the community by custom. In the modern urban and industrial era in education the parents have a choice. They are free to educate their words as they like. And most of the time children spend with their parents at home. As such the influence of the family as socialize of its young is very great. Infect parents are important socializing agents of the children.
The parents of children are found in differences like education, occupation, religion, values, attitudes, and modernist etc. so it is necessary to study the parents of the students as an important factor influencing the achievement and aspiration of children education.

The study focuses on differentiation between ST’s and Non ST’s education, occupation, religion, values, attitudes and modernism etc. and find out achievement and aspiration of education of their children.

This study is empirical as well as descriptive analytical and comparative. It aims to explain who get more education and how. The sample selection was identified by three important variables population, education and region and then 1074 parents from ST and 462 from Non ST were selected as sample. There were found some differences between ST and Non ST regarding the occupation, service, type of house, physical facilities, school of children, expenditure towards education, tuition fees, problems in admission etc.

Abstract: Programming staff at PBS member stations in the United States regularly work to find a balance in scheduling power, negotiating expectations of the national organization PBS with those of their local communities. Primetime schedules from 147 PBS member stations from September 2005 were compared with the PBS national feed to determine a coefficient of scheduling power. Significant power coefficients ranged from 0.063 to 1.0. Stations licensed to local educational were the only group to have significantly different power coefficients. Follow-up interviews with selected station programmers suggest several themes work to shape power at member stations, most notably, localism. Future research should consider station size, budget and location.
