As teachers head into the madness of student course registration, the madness of college basketball reinforces a critical point: Data is crucial to making the picks that lead to a winning bracket, and student growth.

Presidents, We Have Presidents!

It seems that the original purpose of the President's Day national holiday has gotten somewhat lost along the way.
