This week on Education Dive, we take a look at trends in family and institutional spending in higher ed, as well as a roundup of the pitfalls institutions face when building online programs (and how they might be avoided). You'll also want to keep an eye out in K-12 for a look at some of the most controversial textbooks of all time, as well as a round-up of new classroom products for back-to-school.
With for-profit colleges continuing to face scrutiny (California last week took action against Apollo's University of Phoenix), we'll also continue to keep an eye on the latest developments on that front, as well as the ongoing NCLB waiver issues faced by Indiana and Washington state, and the pushback over the Common Core State Standards.

Be sure to check out our by-the-numbers look (complete with infographic) at the relationship between poverty and student achievement, as well as an examination of Moody's gloomy higher ed outlook through the lens of four institutions.
