For families seeking to maximize their investment in college, it is wise to compare completion and retention rates for potential schools. Two recent U.S. News and World Report posts reflect upon important aspects of student progress toward completion: freshman retention rate and 4-year graduation rate.
When taken together, both statistics reflect that, in general, expensive, exclusive schools, have a better record of retaining students and guiding them to 4-year degree completion. This suggests that a more expensive school, in the right context, might be a better choice for financial reasons–there can be a big difference between the costs of a slightly more expensive school for four years versus a slightly less expensive school for five or six years.

Class Charts is a free online tool that lets teachers create seating charts for their pupils. Students can be organised into different groups according to learning needs or behaviour issues and important data about each pupil can be added to further improve the organisation.
Positive and negative behaviour points can also be given, enabling the site to be used as a behaviour management tool by individual teachers or groups of colleagues within the school. The site also generates reports about students behaviour that can be shared with others.
This looks like a really useful (and free) service for schools.
