  • Missouri teachers can become armed safety officers under new law
    By Kevin Murphy KANSAS CITY Mo.

The law allows school districts to select teachers or other employees to carry a concealed weapon or pepper spray as "school protection officers" if they pass a training program and meet other requirements. "This is just an option for school districts, it's not mandatory," state Senator Will Kraus, the bill sponsor, said on Thursday.More

  • How U.S. Colleges Gauge International Students' English Skills
    The Test of English as a Foreign Language, commonly referred to as the TOEFL, is a standardized test of English language proficiency for nonnative English language speakers. This and the International English Language Testing System, known as IELTS, are two of the most popular standardized tests for English proficiency that many international students will need to take before applying for a college or university in the U.S. TOEFL and IELTS are different from the SAT and ACT because those are comprehensive tests aimed to measure readiness for college. For the majority of international students, TOEFL is just one piece of the application -- but many institutions are realizing that neither TOEFL nor IELTS or, for that matter, any standardized test, is the end-all predictor of a student's success.More
