-In 2008, several universities participated in a study in which 80 randomly selected new high school graduates were compared to another 82 students who served as the control group. The students who attended summer programs were more likely to attend a four-year school (41%, compared to 26% in the control group). This proves that the participants in the study are much more likely to enroll in college as a result of their participation in summer programs. Therefore, most students will benefit from summer programs run by their high schools that provide them with the information, skills, and support they need to succeed in college.—Karen Arnold, Thought and Action

-Infants can recognize human voices as early as 7 months of age. Researchers studied brain activity in 32 infants, half of whom were 4 months of age and the other half 7 months old.
