DC students see big gains on standardized tests

The year-to-year gains were the largest since 2008, the second year the tests were administered. Earlier gains in test scores were tainted by allegations of cheating, although multiple investigations found only isolated instances of cheating. The school system has tightened testing security in response to the allegations.

University application rates in UK Vary by ethnicity
The New York Times
According to a report released last week, more than 50 percent of ethnic Chinese students at British state high schools applied to universities, compared with 40 percent of Asians in general and fewer than 30 percent of white students. Applications from black students rose to 34 percent in 2013, from 20 percent in 2006. That means that, proportionately, members of the main minority groups were more likely to apply to universities than those in the white majority.

Bill urges schools to stock anti-allergy drug
The Associated Press via The Boston Globe
The House on Tuesday passed legislation aimed at helping schools better prepare for severe, sometimes life-threatening, allergic reactions caused by eating peanuts or other food products. The measure would give grant preferences to states that come up with policies to make epinephrine, a drug used to treat anaphylactic shock, available in schools. It would also encourage schools to permit trained administrators to administer epinephrine to students believed to be having an anaphylactic reaction and require states to review their liability laws to ensure that administrators have adequate legal protections when they come to the aid of students.
