(Reuters) - National math and reading tests used to track U.S. students’ knowledge in those subjects are being postponed until 2022 due to the coronavirus outbreak, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) said. The NAEP assessments are a key indicator of educational progress in the United States with trends going back decades. Postponing the tests until 2022 will allow time for conditions to stabilize, the NCES commissioner said. If the assessments were held in 2021, it would have cost tens of millions of dollars, he said, adding the delay allows states time to conduct their own state tests in spring 2021. The leaders of the National Assessment Governing Board and the Council of Chief State School Officers supported the move.

Verses vs. Virus: What These Poets Laureate Are Thankful For

Some states have no poet laureate. New Jersey abolished the post in 2003 amid controversy, and Idaho replaced it in the 1980s with a broader “writer-in-residence” appointment. The last full-time poet to hold that job, Diane Raptosh, who has also served as poet laureate of Boise, offered that state’s poem. Illinois had been without an official poet since 2017; we received submissions from its last laureate and the poet who succeeded him on Wednesday. But the many writers who did respond reflected a widespread, if weary, appreciation, both for regional grit and more universal blessings.

In this op-ed article, the "Shark Tank" investor Kevin O'Leary explains why he and other Wall Street investors are betting big on psychedelic mushrooms. Psychedelics look different — in a good way — and the pitfalls that befell early cannabis investors aren't likely. O'Leary recommends three things if you're on the fence about investing in psychedelics: Understand the relative risk, understand the market opportunity, and watch the money. This tells me that psychedelic medicine might just be a whole new asset class. In 2020, the psychedelic medicine industry matured; the next few years will tell whether it can continue to mushroom into a wonderchild.

The coronavirus pandemic means that the 84th Masters will be played without the adoring patrons lining the fairways. Patrons cheer as Tiger Woods celebrates his birdie on the 16th green during the final round of the Masters in 2019. For the players, patrons and television viewers at home, there is a strong sense of familiarity at The Masters.
