Roundup: Study reveals surprises about school choice; Dutch teachers find autonomy

New Orleans study maps out how parents select schools (NPR): Location and after-school programs were the top considerations of New Orleans parents who participated in a study about school choice. The researchers also found that poor families were more likely to choose schools based on proximity and extra-curricular activities over academic performance.

3 bomb threats in 2 days at Marysville-Pilchuck High School: The school was evacuated Wednesday following a telephone bomb threat, and two similar threats on Thursday were determined to be hoaxes.
