I would love to read to a child.  I miss this so much now that my kids are grown up.
 
April 12-18 is Week of the Young Child. Check out some of our children’s books and read to a child this week – and every week! #WOYC

Wow!  That's something!
 
Stanford has positioned itself quite well amongst progressive ideas in education and I'm sure it will pay beaucoup dividends.

Most universities can't do that. But they can all learn something from Stanford's policy.

Obama's presidential library belongs on Chicago's South Side, writes historian Timuel Black, via +Chicago Tribune commentary. 
As a child growing up on Chicago's South Side in the 1920s, I often heard from my wise mother that I should pay attention to our neighbor, Dr. Julian Dawson, a black physician who inspired deep respect in our community.
