The education of Native American youth is tied up in a jumble of federal, state and tribal systems that often overlap but hardly ever bolster their abysmal academic outcomes. This is a story about how the government is failing America's most forgotten children.

See part 6 of my chapter by chapter review of Reign of Error, by Diane Ravitch where I challenge the notion that we are making significant progress in narrowing the performance gap. We will not eliminate the performance gap until we change the way we think about the problems of public education. We need to strengthen the ties between schools and their communities, not weaken them, and we need to utilize all of our energy and imagination to engage all parents as partners in the education of their children. All the talk in world won't change the reality until we start doing things differently, one family, one school, and one community at a time.

The closure of 23 public schools in Philadelphia has had many ripple effects. Nearly 3,000 district employees have been laid off. Most schools don't have full-time nurses, counselors or assistant principals. And now, many students must take longer, more dangerous walks to new schools.

Latest in the ongoing debate over federal gun control efforts. Amid backlash and plummeting poll numbers, some who voted no for the original Senate bill that included background checks on all gun sales could be ready to change position.

Of the 200,000 calls Tribal Police respond to on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation each year, about 80% are alcohol related. Alcohol is banned on the reservation, and police spend a dizzying amount of time and resources enforcing that ban.

On 13th Street in Goldsboro, the city of Sanford's historic black neighborhood, folks are waiting for a verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. Trayvon Martin wasn't killed in Goldsboro. He was shot a few miles away across town. But it is here, literally on the other side of the tracks, where the first rallies and protests began. And it is here where the relationship between the black community and the police is most strained. Here's my account of life along 13th Street.

In Louisiana, violence is black and white in its love affair with guns. As the blood continues to spill in cities like New Orleans and Baton Rouge, lawmakers are pushing through legislation that would further loosen the state's already lax gun laws.
