After the non-indictments in the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, my colleagues worked really hard to put together this package on racism and how it has impacted them in their lives - Felecia Wellington on being a black woman in an interracial marriage, Jay Scott Smith on being a young black man in America, and more. I hope you'll take the time to read some of their stories, comment and share.

What do you think it will take to fix America's complex race problems? #icantbreathe   #wecantbreathe   #blacklivesmatter   #alllivesmatter   #ericgarner   #ericgarnercase   #michaelbrown   #ferguson   #police

Disobedient students. Heavy workloads. Standardized testing mandates. Public disdain for the profession. Teachers and experts say these are just a few of the factors that send educators running from careers in education. #njea #nj #njed #schools #backtoschool #teachers #edchat #satchat #ptchat #education #educationnews #njnews #jerseyshore #newjersey

According to the lawsuit, the NJ superintendent said she'd "convert" the special services supervisor into a lesbian.

#NJ schools struggling to meet tech mandates ask students to bring their own devices to class. Good news for education or bad news for the kids who can't afford iPads and iPhones for school? #njed   #newjersey   #education   #edchat   #schools   #edtech   #tech   #ipad   #iphone   #android   #samsung
