DO STUDENTS AT SOME SCHOOLS HAVE AN UNFAIR GPA ADVANTAGE? You bet they do, as some high schools "weight" harder classes and some don't. This means that kids with identical coursework are getting different grade points for them. Why does this matter? For one student it is the difference between an $8,000 scholarship.

THE MEDIA'S 2016 CAMPAIGN FOR HILLARY HAS BEGUN We haven't even suffered through the Inauguration of the 2nd Term of Obama and the NYTimes is trolling for Hillary 2016. On Morning Joe this morning, Mika was damn near orgasmic in declaring Hillary SUPREMELY qualified to be President. SUPREMELY.
