Phil Murphy this week that the state will allow in-person, socially-distanced commencement ceremonies.

What schools will look like when they reopen: Scheduled days home, more online learning, lots of hand-washing What schools will look like when they reopen: Scheduled days home, more online learning, lots of hand-washing
Imagine, for a moment, American children returning to school this fall. The school week looks vastly different, with most students attending school two or three days a week and doing the rest of their learning at home.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly referenced the SAT in a headline. Students who encounter technical problems while submitting their Advanced Placement exams can now email their work as a last resort, the College Board announced as it heads into the second week of administering tests that can count for college credit.

ASBURY PARK, N.J. – Mackenzie Horvath had high hopes for the last few months of her senior year at Jackson Memorial High School.

High housing costs and low pay stretch Florida teachers to their limits High housing costs and low pay stretch Florida teachers to their limits
SARASOTA, Fla. – The students in Ms. Stringer’s chemistry class at North Port High School would crack up when Alex Foley, 17, slipped and called his teacher by her first name, Jen. It was an honest mistake. She wasn’t just his teacher last year – she was also his coworker. By day Stringer teaches high school chemistry. By night, she waits tables at the British Open Pub in Venice, hustling pi...

As fear surrounding the new coronavirus spreads in the USA, scares pop up almost daily at college campuses. Administrators have canceled sporting events and travel to China.

HERNDON, Va. – On a humid morning this past summer, three college-age boys walked to their local river to make mud together for an eco-friendly art project.
