dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to examine the level of knowledge of diabetes among elementary school teachers. Procedure. This descriptive study obtained data from a random sample using a survey approach. A Demographic questionnaire and a Diabetes Knowledge Test for School Personnel were mailed to 200 teachers in northeast Iowa. An 89.5% response yielded a data-producing sample of 173 elementary school teachers. Based upon an adequate level of knowledge at 75% (21 correct) only 32 (18.6%) of the teachers demonstrated an adequate knowledge level. Conclusions. This study substantiates the belief that the level of knowledge of diabetes among elementary school teachers is inadequate. Additional data are needed to determine it this is representative of other areas in the country. Recommendations. Replication of the study with suggested revisions are indicated. Exploring other chronic illnesses and teachers' knowledge in those areas still needs to be addressed en_US
