When—and why—do you call students to the front of the classroom?
The front of the classroom is a power spot. Through empathy and recognizing student agency, you can make it a positive place for them to inhabit.

We've lost a champion. http://sp.lc/QX8aB

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of legendary civil rights activist Julian Bond, SPLC's first president. He was 75 years old and died last evening, August 15, in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.

From his days as the co-founder and communications director of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in the 1960s to his chairmanship of the NAACP in the 21st century, Julian was a visionary and tireless champion for civil and human rights. He served as the SPLC's president from our founding in 1971 to 1979, and later as a member of its board of directors.

With Julian's passing, the country has lost one of its most passionate and eloquent voices for the cause of justice. He advocated not just for African Americans, but for every group, indeed every person subject to oppression and discrimination, because he recognized the common humanity in us all.

Julian is survived by his wife, Pamela Horowitz, a former SPLC staff attorney, and his five children.

Not only has the country lost a hero today, we've lost a great friend.

- Morris Dees, co-founder and chief trial attorney of the Southern Poverty Law Center

A feature film on the murder of Emmett Till can bring this important history to a new generation.
Keith A. Beauchamp hopes his feature film ‘Till’ will catalyze a modern-day push for racial equality.

These teachers voted—unanimously—to work for free.
Local mismanagement, budget cuts and charter schools have pushed the district to insolvency, an official says.

An essential list.
Here at Bino and Fino, we are always on the look out for things that will help nurture young minds.  Finding children's books for kids that have a black girl as the protagonist or the main character can be tricky. This is because of the fact that there is very little visibility of black & brown kids in the world of children's books.  This is changing with campaigns such as We Need Diverse Books calling for more diversity in children's ...
