Three cheers for Ventura County's college-bound students, who pumped up their SAT scores for the fifth year in a row and outshone their peers across California and the nation. The countywide average of 1061 topped the state average of 1013 and national average of 1017. It marked a five-point increase over last year's county average and a 25-point increase since 1994. This achievement is the result of hard work by teachers, school administrators, parents, taxpayers and the students themselves.

But now, after decades of benign acceptance, the word aptitude has fallen into disfavor.
