Adrian Daniel Reyes's insight:

This article is about College Board improving, or changing the SAT test that many students had taken to get into universities. One of the big changes is that the essay of the test will be subtracted or become optional to take. The three-part score of 2400 will be dropped back to a two-part score of 1600. The vocabulary words of the test will be changed to words in favor of more workday words. College Board’s decision to change the test was maybe planned through many months or even years. The tests will also have reading passages from documents like the Declaration of Independents or the Bill of Rights.

Jazmin Reyes's curator insight, March 20, 2014 1:52 PM

The SAT is something that a lot of students hate. The SAT is supposed to score us based on what we know but the SAT affects our options about college. I agree that we should change the SAT to things we are currently learning but the essay should not be optional. The essay lets us know where we stand.

The Only Thing More Expensive Than College is Not Going to College

Millennials are the best-educated American generation in history, with more than 1-in-3 possessing a college degree by early adulthood.
Adrian Daniel Reyes's insight:

This article is based on whether college is worth the money or not. In the data charts, it shows that people who have a bachelor or at least two years of college student make more money, than a high school graduate. The gap between the more educated (college degrees) and the high school graduate are just increasing more and more throughout the decades. Now that gap is at $17,500 from $7,499 in 1965.  Secondary education is still a good decision to make.
