Round-up: Earnings gap grows for college grads, D.C.-area schools test out single-sex classes

College earnings gap grows to widest level in 48 years (AP): Young people without a college degree today earn 62 percent of the typical college graduate’s salary — the lowest level in nearly half a century. The analysis from the Pew Research Center also found median earnings for individuals with a high-school diploma have fallen more than $3,000 since 1965, with inflation factored in.

UW, Western and Gonzaga lead schools in sending graduates to Peace Corps: Three Washington colleges are among the U.S. institutions who send the most graduates into the Peace Corps. UW came in second on this year’s list of large colleges and universities, while Western was the top-ranked medium-sized college in the nation and Gonzaga was No. 1 among small schools.

At G. James Gholson Middle School in Prince George’s County, Md., 20 percent of classes are all-boys or all-girls, a division that advocates say reduces distractions and gender biases.
