New York City received a lot of attention recently with a bold promise made to some of its youngest residents: Mayor Bill de Blasio ran on a campaign to fund full-day public preschool for all New York City children through a modest increased income tax on residents making more than $500,000 a year. Although Mayor de Blasio's tax proposal was not approved by the state legislature or supported by New York's Governor Andrew Cuomo, the legislature did approve statewide funding for pre-K that included a $300 million increase for New York City's preschool program. New York City is moving forward for children -- and it isn't the only major city and school district making strides towards providing high-quality public preschool programs to as many children as possible. Several large districts that have been doing this for a while are already seeing strong results.

The new pope's resonance with so many church members shows that among more progressive Catholics, there is a true desire for change. Like many Catholics, I believe this change cannot possibly arrive without the support of Catholic leaders.
The struggles over values and religious beliefs need to be part of the analysis about the way forward. This is as true for Afghanistan as it is for anywhere else where religion is an element in conflict (that is, pretty much everywhere).
One cannot just address the health of a child with a severe respiratory disease if the environment where he lives will only continue the vicious circl...
Had there been no shutdown, the D.C. press corps would have covered every glitch accompanying last Tuesday's launch of the Obamacare-created health insurance marketplaces to the point that the glitches would be all that they -- and we -- would be talking about now.
All over the country. student veterans are taking the lead in transforming their campuses, improving conditions for fellow veterans and enriching campus life for everyone.
When queried about the specific connection between the Black Church and Hip Hop, Daniel White Hodge cites research pointing to an epic disconnect: this music impassioned precisely those young African-Americans who in previous generations would have channeled their energies into institutionalized religion.
The word "divest" was like a dog whistle to campus activists who've been pushing their colleges and universities to rid their endowments of stock in companies that are part of the fossil fuel industry.
