Round-up: Study finds mentoring helps kids stay healthy, $16 million for UW foreign languages

Study finds mentoring can help kids’ health (Reuters): Research from the University of Georgia has found strong social support can have positive effects on the physical health of adolescents growing up in poverty. High levels of stress hormones are known to contribute to chronic illnesses among children.

$16 million will go toward UW foreign languages: The University of Washington has received a $16-million federal grant that will support up to 140 fellowships a year for students who study languages other than Spanish, French and German. The grant is from the U.S. Department of Education and is intended to help the nation enhance its international leadership role.

Enrollment up in Portland Public Schools (The Oregonian): Experts say the growth is fueled by overall population increases and more parents opting to stay in the city after their children reach school age.
