As summer comes to a close, students are bidding farewell to late bedtimes and sleeping in. The Associated Press reports that expected attendance in public elementary and secondary schools is up slightly from last year and that many other statistics are changing in 2015-2016. Math and reading tests show that national averages are either the same or lower than last year, and many schools are increasing the length of school year to allow for shorter breaks from learning. Higher education costs continue to rise, though school supply costs seem to have decreased.
