My heart aches to this beautiful composition + these heart striking lyrics: NE ME QUITTE PAS ("don't let me go," for you non-French speakers).

Still considered one of the most expressive singers of all time, alongside Edith Piaf, in France.

The Republicans won yet another education budget battle.
Outlook for American education: poor

Finally, a bill with strong bipartisan support has passed the Congress. Unfortunately, the new law is a farce and an embarrassment to American education. #ESSA , a bill drafted heavily by Republicans, does little to empower low income communities or students of color; it's also yet another strike at teachers and unions across the country. Much like "No Child Left Behind" this law will keep the US education system at international lows because politics came before our kids. The worse part is that #ESSA will expire by 2020, so it's now more important than ever for folks to ensure that the next person elected president understands education is a priority.
The new law, known as the Every Student Succeeds Act, changes much about the federal government's role in education, largely by scaling back Washington's influence.

Smart policy. Right?

New York City will now require employers with more than 20 employees to provide said employees with commuter saving benefits.

Hard enough to live in this city to have to worry about ever increasing commuter fare hikes. Kudos to Mayor de Blasio. Programs like pre-tax commuter savings don't save commuters too much money, but it's a step in the direction.

Please read my op-ed, titled Education: The Next Battle - a silent war for fairness in education is brewing across America

"We have failed our kids. We have failed to revolutionize education quickly enough in our public schools to equip kids with the tools they need for post-secondary education and beyond. We have failed to give schools the tools they need to empower students, families, and educators to organize and address the local edu-issues they so desperately need to resolve.

"We have, however, succeeded in politicizing education in our national and local politics. In far too many places across the country we have put a price tag on the minds of our youth. The effects will be felt for generations. ...."

This is yet another reminder that, by and large, black kids are not allowed to be children. Quoting a piece by Mia McKenzie, "Why don’t our children get to be children? Why don’t they ever get to be innocent?"

What I have grown to find most troubling is calls from politicians for "calm". These so-called public servants demand public calmness weeks and days before these prejudicial decisions are made each time a person of color is murdered and the community comes to the defense of not just the victim and their family - but of the community as a whole. Oh, if only black kids like Tamir Rice and the countless others had the privilege of telling their murderers to "remain calm" before they took their lives.

The decision came as no surprise to family members and activists who say prosecutors have tainted the investigation.

This controversial character has taken the British public by storm. Over the past two weeks, she's sparked trending hashtags, debates across national television, and anger in hundreds of thousands of British households. Her name? Lady Colin Campbell. Her claim to fame: "I'm A Celebrity: Get Me Out of Here" and multiple books she has authored.

This is what happens when you confront a politician in Britain on #BBCQT

A Conservative voter confronts a Conservative member of parliament on the BBC's long-running programme over the Conservative's controversial tax cuts that will leave hundreds of thousands of low income families devastated. The Conservatives are only now unveiling plans to cut tax credits to working families, after refusing to reveal the plan before they were re-elected in May.

Watch for the MP's response - nothing; the programme moves along. A statement was later issued by the MP's office stating that by 2018, voters, like the woman who confronted her, will be "better off". Heartless.
