Student class size is often a hotly debated issue between parents and state and local education departments. Why? Because several studies have pointed out that students who attend school in smaller classes achieve a greater level of learning. However, smaller class sizes mean hiring more teachers, which in turn costs more money.
Now that junior year is in full swing, it is time to think about college entrance exams. The big question from our parents always is which exam to take, the SAT or ACT test. You may get a different answer depending on where you live. Here in the Midwest, the ACT test is the predominant exam while on both coasts the SAT is still more common. The bottom line is that all domestic universities equally accept both exams.
