Paying for College

If you're planning to go to college, how are you planning to pay for it?
The bad news:  Tuition at the average public university in the U.S. would set you back about $8,200 a year.   The good news:  Fewer than half of all public university students actually pay that, according to government surveys.  Scholarships, grants, and financial aid are three things that help students out. 

Family savings, work/study programs, and student loans also factor in to getting a higher education.

Using your first name only, please let us know what you're doing to prepare for the cost of college,
if you're planning to go.

Color-Coded Card Controversy

Most school systems look for ways to encourage students to get better test scores.  One district in California tried giving students color-coded ID cards based on how well students scored on standardized tests.

Black cards, given for great scores, got students free admission to sporting events and school dances.  Gold cards, given to students who showed improvement, had some limited benefits.  And white cards, for the students with the lowest scores, had no benefits - and students with white cards had to stand in a different lunch line.

The district recently did away with the program, issuing the same color IDs to everyone.  But we'd like to hear what you think of the idea of using color-coded cards to either give or limit student benefits, based on scores.

The Issue of Bullying

We're focusing on the issue of bullying this week, with reports on some students' solutions to the problem and how some people intervene when they see it.  We're looking for your take as well:  How do you think students should respond when they see bullying?

Too Good To Play?

That's what a rule says about 11-year-old Demias Jimerson.  If his team is up by 14 points and he's already scored three touchdowns, Jimerson isn't allowed to score any more.

Why?  To give the other players a chance to score, according to the principal.  But whether that's fair or whether it goes too far is now in your hands.
