Survey finds most superintendents support Common Core (The Washington Post): A recent survey from the Center for Education Policy finds most school district leaders support Common Core, but a majority also said they are concerned about finding enough time and resources to properly implement the new standards. More than 200 superintendents participated in the survey.

Errors in data for U.S. News rankings (The Chronicle of Higher Education): Two colleges have advised U.S. News & World Report that they submitted incorrect figures for the 2015 “Best Colleges” ranking. One of the schools, Lindenwood University in Missouri, was added to the “unranked” category as a result of the inaccuracy.
