Have you heard all the noise about video games? Pick up a copy of Time or the New York Times, and you’ll hear an uproar over video games making their players violent and aggressive.

You’ve heard the clarion calls before: ensure reading is a daily habit. But just how important is becoming a voracious reader? Are good reading habits really so closely linked with success?
You bet! The stories are true: everyone should be reading constantly—and yes, especially over the summer. Not only has reading regularly been proven to court high scores on standardized tests, studies also show it prevents the dreaded knowledge backslide that can erode confidence at the beginn
So you’ve taken the plunge! You’re officially enrolled in the summer semester at your local college: now which courses should you take?
Explore a field in which you’re genuinely interested, or one in which you’ve never even considered having an interest. Engage your latent passions for modern astronomy, Russian history, or cognitive linguistics—or if you’ve always been baffled by why so many people study these fields, you might find an answer by enrolling in a course focused on one of
Though you might not be itching to run back into a classroom, enrolling in a summer class at a local college might just be the best way to spend a healthy chunk of your summer. Over 1.3 million high school students in the U.S. enrolled in college courses last year, and it’s no surprise: immersing yourself in a brand-new environment — college! — will prepare you for the moment you head off on your own journey into higher education.

You know your child has ADHD, but his attention has waned since the afternoon. Is it possible your child’s diet is affecting his ADHD?
Although research is not yet conclusive, there is considerable anecdotal and scientific evidence that certain food groups exacerbate ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Di
Every year, thousands of excited high school students receive phone calls, letters, and pats on the back from the athletic coaches of their dream colleges. But only a tiny percentage actually make it to the courts, diamonds, fields, and stadiums of universities, leaving those hopeful high school graduates wondering what went wrong. Is your child actually being recruited for college sports? Why do many colleges lead students into thinking they have a prized spot on their athl
Aspiring college athletes often face the challenge of differentiating between a college’s genuine commitment to the student as a likely candidate for school admission, and just an empty promise from a talent-seeking coach. The recruiting process can be daunting, but it is a process that, like anything else, can be broken down into smaller steps in order to be more easily managed.
One of the main factors in deciding your student-athlete’s likelihood of admission to a desired scho

Since becoming president of the College Board this past October, I have had the opportunity to travel around the country, meeting with members and listening to their ideas on how we can improve our organization and enhance our ability to serve students.
