Bernie Sanders is unveiling a free college tuition bill. Will it work?

May 18, 2015
“Presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (D) of Vermont is planning to unveil a bill that, if passed, will make tuition at four-year public colleges and universities free. In addition to eliminating college tuition at public colleges, Mr. Sanders' bill would expand work-study programs, and seeks to lower student debt and student loan rates – a system modeled after those of European countries such as Germany, Sweden, and Denmark. Earlier this year, Sanders called for free tuition for college freshman and sophomores, and recently other liberal politicians have also taken up the cause of making college more affordable for American students as well. To fulfill this goal, Sanders had called on state governments to invest $18 billion public higher education each year in order to meet his original goal of free tuition for college freshman and sophomores.”

The data come from a survey of 12- to 18-year-olds by the National Center for Education Statistics. Since the start of the measurement in 2005, the percentage had ranged from 28 to 32 percent. “As schools become safer, students are better able to thrive academically and socially,” Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said in a statement. “Even though we’ve come a long way over the past few years in educating the public about the health and educational impacts that bullying can have on students, we still have more work to do to ensure the safety of our nation’s children,” he added.”

Youth who receive tobacco coupons may be more susceptible to smoking
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News

May 13, 2015
“By Kathryn Doyle (Reuters Health) - Middle and high school students exposed to tobacco coupons were more likely to find smoking “cool” and less likely to feel confident in quitting if they already smoked, according to recent U.S. survey data. Some kids may encounter the coupons for free or discounted tobacco products passively, via direct mail campaigns aimed at their parents, but the coupons are also often sent by email and are readily available on the Internet. “In previous studies, my collaborators and I found that exposure to cigarette coupons predicts smoking progression in youth and young adults and reduces likelihood of cessation among general adult smokers from the U.S. upper Midwest,” said the study’s author, Dr. Kelvin Choi of the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities in Bethesda, Maryland. This new national sample of middle and high school students who were included in the current analysis can be generalized to youth across the United States, Choi told Reuters Health in a statement.”

Why Schools Moved Higher or Lower in the Best High Schools Rankings
by Education News Headlines - Yahoo! News

May 13, 2015
“There are several possible reasons public schools' ranks changed in the 2015 edition. 1. Changes in relative performance on state tests: Some schools that were ranked in the 2014 Best High Schools rankings fell out of the 2015 rankings completely because they were no longer among the best-performing schools on their statewide tests -- meaning that their overall student performance on state tests during the 2012-2013 academic year did not exceed statistical expectations (Step 1 of the rankings methodology) or the performance of their least advantaged students was not as good as the state average (Step 2 of the methodology). If they did not pass both of these steps of the methodology, schools were not eligible for the national competition for a gold, silver or bronze medal and don't appear at all in the rankings. In total, 3,375, or 72 percent, of the high schools that were awarded a gold, silver or bronze medal in the 2014 Best High Schools rankings returned to the 2015 rankings as gold, silver or bronze medal winners.”

What Borrowers Can Expect From the New Income-Driven Repayment Plan

“Back in the spring of 2014, President Barack Obama's budget request proposed expanding the Pay As You Earn income-driven repayment program, with some caveats, to more federal student loan borrowers. Several months later, the president strengthened that request by issuing an executive order requiring the Department of Education to promulgate regulations to implement that expansion no later than the end of December 2015. To fulfill that order, the Department of Education initiated a process called negotiated rulemaking this past fall. This process is required under the Higher Education Act and entails a series of public hearings, meetings with constituents of the parties that will be affected by the proposed regulatory changes and a sometimes extensive public comment period.”

Washington state schools seek waiver from U.S. test-result penalties

May 11, 2015
“Washington state, which already lost an exemption from some requirements of U.S. education law, is asking not to be penalized for lower test scores this year as districts switch to a standardized exam tethered to tougher standards, an official said on Monday. "The test is more rigorous than previous tests we've had," said Nathan Olson, a spokesman for state Superintendent Randy Dorn. "We shouldn't have to continue with penalties during this transition period." Washington state public schools are required to give the tests to meet federal education requirements under No Child Left Behind, a law signed in 2002 requiring annual standardized tests in American schools. If Dorn's March 31 accountability waiver request is granted, the state would still report its test results from the 2014-2015 school year but be free from the federal law's increasingly punitive sanction scheme if students fail to meet yearly performance targets, Olson said.”
