The notion of Score Choice seems more gimmick and adds to the anxiety that students and families go through in he college application process. The SAT unfortunately continues to be a significant determiner of acceptance at schools that fall outside of the top 25. It's great to see our students' scores increasing. However, we shouldn't put everything on SAT scores as an indicator of the quality of our schools. SAT II and AP test scores are equally as important. I really wished Obama would do more to take care of education since now both the Olympics and Health Care have become losing issues. Education is the silver bullet that we never want to really deal with. I recently went to seminar held by C2 Education in Mt. View (Web Link) and heard some great ideas. There is an interview of many of the things I heard at the seminar posted on youtube Web Link.

These above average SAT scores only apply to those students who took the SAT and therefore are hardly a reflection of school performance. The article should have addressed what percentage of students at each school actually took the SAT.
