Round-up: WSU and UW spar over future med school, LA district shifts gears on technology

WSU, UW spar over future of region’s med schools: The University of Washington and Washington State University are competing for scarce higher-education funding in a push to train more primary-care physicians in Eastern Washington. WSU would like to open a new medical school in Spokane, while UW says expanding its existing program there would require less accrediting work and administrative overhead.

Program combats ‘undermatching’ for low-income college students (The Hechinger Report): College Match, a program that began in eight Chicago schools, seeks to direct more qualified low-income students into top-tier colleges and universities. Research from Harvard and Stanford has found the “vast majority” of low-income students who score high on the SAT or ACT do not apply to highly selective universities, even though they are highly qualified and, in many cases, would receive generous financial aid packages.

LA shifts gears on classroom tech (Los Angeles Times): The city’s Board of Education is considering a proposal that would allow high schools to select one of six different laptop computers for student use. Last fall, the district supplied iPads for all students at 47 schools.
