In 2017, a survey showed that the percentage of Americans who believe that God created man in present form reached a low of 37 percent.  In March of 2019, a poll showed one-third of Americans still do not believe global warming is caused by human activities. It is not surprising then that a study finds a significant association between those who deny evolution and those who deny climate change.

A Democratic candidate, Kaye Kory, for the State Delegate of the 38th District recently described the neighborhood with these words: "Little River Turnpike is a highly developed drag where it’s common to see Hispanic immigrants waiting for work outside the Home Depot." In the description, Kory also mentions the premier high school in the United

"Putting one's money where one's mouth is" is an old saying that prescribes us not to just talk about problems, but actually do something about it. This instruction may be useful in making someone honor their commitment but an additional exercise that may be enlightening is to look at where one puts his or her money. After all, where we spend money speaks volume with regard to what we deem worthy

Decade after decade, it is the same story. It is true that segregation is no longer dictated by law, but it is now indirectly enforced by housing prices, school programs, and zoning policies. We have candidates for school boards who appear to be championing equity in our schools. The sad bottom line, however, is that things have hardly changed. In "Who Gets Served in Gifted Education?

It is easy to claim that gifts and favors decide which candidate will win in an election in the Philippines. This is actually very simplistic. Using policies and performance as guides in fact do not offer a clearer way for voters to decide. In so many ways, in a developing country where there are so many needs unmet, prioritization becomes an overwhelming task. A flyer intended to inform voters

During election day, Filipinos have the opportunity to visit public schools because voting precincts are located inside classrooms. It is therefore highly likely that Filipino voters are aware of the conditions of public schools in the Philippines. And some are a bit surprised to see two different classrooms. In the photographs below, Senator Bam Aquino (left) and Bongbong Marcos (right) vote in

Since education assumes a very important place in a society, it is without doubt dependent on politics. Today is the first day of early voting for endorsing candidates to the school board in Fairfax county by the Democratic party. And in the Philippines, on Monday, the people will elect both national and local leaders. A high school classmate of mine is running for membership in the local council

"If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck." In education, we do not seem to follow this simple rule. We can never address the problem of inequity in education if we continue with practices that undermine fairness. We can pretend as much as we want that we are advocating for education for all but our practices remain the single loudest
