The Test-Prep Program That’s Helping Low-Income Students Get to College

It’s one of the most glaring indicators of inequity in the nation’s education system: Students from low-income families tested 166 points below the average on last year’s SAT and 396 points behind than their wealthiest peers. Put another way, the poorest students (whose parents earned less than $20,000) could barely meet the baseline for applying to California State University, Northridge, while most rich kids (whose parents rake in over $200,000) would have the same shot of getting into the higher ranked University of California, Los Angeles. -- Nation Swell

Beth Allen: Finding happiness in Scotland key to my success

“It is difficult to put my finger on a specific factor, but I think experience has helped me tremendously,” admitted the graduate of California State University at Northridge. “I had only been playing golf for eight years before I qualified to play on the LPGA, so I was relatively young in golf years. Now, 20 years after I started playing I feel like I have learned how to win and get the most out of my game. I also have been working with Ian Rae for about 18 months and he has been a great help really fine tuning my swing and helping me with my overall game. -- The Scotsman
