Steve Scher talks to University of Washington professor John Marzluff as he explains the best practices for dealing with crows during the spring “hatching season.” The birds can be particularly protective while their babies are learning to leave the nest.
Teenagers face some serious issues: drugs, bullying, sexual violence, depression, gangs. They don't always like to talk about these things with adults.

Hundreds of thousands of students take such surveys every year. School districts use them to gather data; so do the federal government, states and independent researchers.
