This week's word in the news: CONSORTIUM

DEFINITION:
A group of people, companies or organizations that agree to work together for a common purpose.


FOUND IN THE NEWS:
The Colorado State Board of Education has joined a movement advocating the state pull out of a multi-state testing consortium called — pardon the clumsy title — the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC.
The Denver Post -- 04/14/2014


Step onto any high school campus and you'll feel its energy. Each school is turbocharged with the power of young minds, bodies, hearts and spirits.

Here on the Western Slope, young citizens are honing and testing their skills to take on a rapidly changing world. Largely thanks to technology, they are in the midst of the most profound seismic shift the world has ever seen.

Perhaps no time in our history has it been more important to know what our youth are thinking, feeling and expressing. In their school newspapers, they not only comment on high school issues and life in western Colorado, but expand their horizons by grappling with national and international issues, as well.

The Sentinel is proud to spotlight some of their writing, photography and artwork. During summer break we're featuring selections from spring editions of The Catalyst, produced at Fruita Monument High School, and the Orange & Black, the school newspaper at Grand Junction High School. You'll also find a link to an innovative website produced by students at Palisade High School.

We hope you enjoy a fresh take on the world.
