Steve Nelson | Posted 03.06.2016 | Politics
Steve Nelson

We are not observing the advance army of the destruction of the American democratic republic, as some seem to worry. We are hearing the death rattle of a shrinking group (and some of their offspring and political bedfellows) of resentful, mostly white citizens who have been simmering for decades over sex, drugs, rock and roll, civil rights, feminism, gay rights and/or any number of other changes that created discomfort for them.

Mirla Gonzalez

As a Latina, a teacher and a millennial, I am tired of hearing Trump say he has the Latino vote. I'm tired and offended. "Latinos love me," he repeatedly claims. Is that a joke? I don't love you. Many of us don't love you.

Educating Generation Z: Let Them Color Outside the Lines

A.S. Chung | Posted 12.16.2015 | Parents
A.S. Chung

All of a sudden, the ingrained mantra of "study hard, get a good job, save money" is no longer acceptable. And yet, I have to be progressive enough to recognize that the current education system is unable to prepare my daughter for a life we can only predict. With literacy and numeracy remaining as the fundamental basis of their schooling years, I am by no means convinced it is adequate.

Madeline Wahl | Posted 06.22.2016 | Women
Madeline Wahl

Growing up, I didn't really understand what it meant to take the road less traveled. I used to be so trapped in who I was that I didn't bother to look around me. But everything came to a sudden halt when my grandmother passed away. For the first time in my life, I really questioned what the purpose of everything was.
