Chris Weigant | August 25, 2014 | Politics

Democrats Renew the Call for 'First Class Citizenship' and Justice for All

Christine Pelosi | August 23, 2014 | Politics
The 1960s demand for "first class citizenship" echoes through the years as our call to justice today. Unfortunately the Bull Connor images of peaceful protesters were not historic remnants but eerily prescient of tanks and tear gas last week in Ferguson, MO.

Teachers, Like Mr. Keating, Deserve Due Process, Support, and Our Respect

Bruce Lesley | August 22, 2014 | Education
Teachers can and do make a real difference in children's lives, and a real reform agenda would make investments in improving teacher quality. But we must not pretend that eliminating due process would improve teacher quality, that raising students' test scores is the sole solution or that teacher quality is the only educational obstacle facing students.

Ferguson: The Untold Story

Arianna Huffington | August 21, 2014 | Media
Think you have a pretty good idea of what's going on in Ferguson, Missouri? You may not, even if you've been watching a lot of cable news. Especially if you've been watching a lot of cable news. If the media's job is to give viewers and readers an accurate and full idea of what's really going on, we have to acknowledge that there is a long way to go. Of course, Ferguson is not an isolated case. But it is a chance for those of us in the media to expand our understanding of our role in covering the news. At HuffPost we are certainly covering the violence and the underlying racial tensions, but we are also committed to telling the "untold story" (as our splash put it on Tuesday) -- of compassion, ingenuity, kindness, trust, collaboration and community.
