Round-up: Black graduates twice as likely to be unemployed, more speed cameras at Seattle schools

Report: Black college graduates twice as likely to be unemployed (The Atlantic): A new report from the Center for Economic and Policy Research finds 12.4 percent of black college graduates between the ages of 22 and 27 were unemployed in 2013, compared with 5.6 percent of all college graduates in the same age range. As graduates age, the employment gap narrows but never completely disappears, researchers found.

Bellingham schools outfitted with panic buttons (The Bellingham Herald): Every school in the Bellingham School District will soon have a panic button that directly connects to local law-enforcement. The system is being paid for through a $440,000 state grant.

Seattle installing speed cameras at five schools: Five more Seattle schools will be equipped with speed cameras by the time class resumes in the fall.
