For middle school and up, up, up

High school teachers also find the site useful--even for students in their advanced classes. When content is written well for a middle-school audience, it doesn't insult those who are older. That's why even community college profs like the content on this site. But middle-school teachers really appreciate that it speaks to their kids about amazingly current events, all without dumbing anything down.
