    NEW YORK (AP) — First it was toilet paper. Disinfectant wipes. Beans. Coins. Computers. Now, desks are in short supply because of the coronavirus pandemic. Millions of kids logging onto virtual school this fall has parents scrambling to find furniture for them. It’s a small indignity compared with the kids who don’t even have home internet or computers, but it’s a hassle for parents lucky enough to have the space and money to afford desks just the same. At the same time, some people are realizing they’ll be working from home for the long haul and require new furniture. To find desks, people are scouring stores near and far and even making their own.

    As luxury problems go, your 2-year-old’s Mandarin classes not being up to scratch must count as pretty first world. Yet in the exclusive kindergartens of some of London’s most expensive residential districts, where multi-million dollar homes are snapped up in seconds by pushy parents keen to give their pampered offspring every conceivable advantage in life, inadequate baby Mandarin lessons are a very serious subject indeed. Now, one of these disputes is set to end up in court after parents of children at the idyllic-sounding Bluebell Cottage pre-school in London’s tony Kensington after parents accused the school of poor Mandarin teaching, not delivering on the school’s promised diet of organic fare and accused the school’s director, Sara Brennan, of screaming down...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Almost daily now, a message comes on social media or to the KDKA email inbox from a parent telling us someone has tested positive for COVID-19 in their child’s school. Often somewhere in the message is the accusation that the school is not handling it right, covering it up, or not giving parents the information they need. Parents want to know what risks their children face so just how far can they expect the school district to go in disclosing incidents and how they are being handled. Bob Daley is a Civil Law specialist with Robert Peirce and Associates. “It’s an interesting mix of privacy rights and public health concerns,” Daley said. “So, the school...
    There’s something that happens when watching PEN15, especially if you are a millennial, especially if you were 13 years old in the year 2000, especially if you can recite with perfect inflection the spoken-word monologue in Mandy Moore’s “Candy.” You look at stars, creators, and writers Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle playing a game of M.A.S.H. while gossiping over their see-through landline phones. You take in the constellations of orthodontia at their class pool party, akin to reading a dental star chart. You cringe as they call each other “slut bags,” as if they have any idea what the insult means. You suffer PTSD as they gyrate in their childhood bedrooms to sexually explicit hip-hop songs, cry along as their...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A lot of children are spending more time in front of screens than ever before. A study by the non-profit group Parents Together found screen time during the pandemic has increased 500% for nearly half of the families that responded.

Still chose to homeschool rather than the distance learning option through the district. “I was trying to imagine having him sitting in front of a screen for four-plus hours a day,” she said.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York City still needs to hire several thousands more teachers before schools fully open next week. The big question is whether students in actual classrooms will still have to learn remotely. The mayor says no. The teachers union says yes. As CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reports, when almost one million New York City students return to school next week, many for in-person learning, it may depend on what your definition of “in-person” is.

But school is going on as usual for most of its four hundred and seventeen students....
    Monday’s return to New York City schools wasn’t the one anyone planned for. For most, it wasn’t a return at all. Only pre-kindergarten and some special education students were scheduled to end a six-month absence from school buildings after a last-minute decision to postpone, for the second time, plans to be among the first big districts to resume in-person instruction after the coronavirus forced students and staff home. Mayor Bill de Blasio greeted pre-K students at a school in Queens and praised the “air of energy and spirit” among teachers and pupils. “To see those children so engaged, so happy to be there, it was truly inspiring,” de Blasio said.

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a daughter of Brooklyn, a child of middle-class Jewish immigrants. She attended James Madison High School, named after our fourth president, one of the principal authors of the Constitution. A Virginian, Madison was a white male whose father gave him one of his slaves as a manservant to attend him when he went to Princeton. Yet, he crafted words that would protect the liberties of Americans for the ages. RBG knew the pain and indignity of discrimination. She was one of nine women in a class of 550 at Harvard Law School. When the dean called upon her to justify why she was there taking the place of a man, the only answer she could muster...
    Several Florida teachers reported witnessing parents' alcohol consumption or drug use during students' remote classes. Universal Images Group/Getty Images In a Palm Beach County school board meeting earlier this week, elementary school teacher Edith Pride employed parents to behave appropriately during their children's remote school days, which are filmed and recorded.  In her three-minute speech, Pride asked parents to "have on proper clothing" and avoid "appearing with big joints" in the background of their children's videoconferences during the school day.  Several other Palm Beach County school teachers reported similar incidents of alcohol consumption, partial nudity, or drug use in the background of virtual lessons. Researchers have found that parents stressed out by new circumstances and remote learning amid...
    By The Associated Press TOKYO — Train stations and airports in Japan were filled with people over this “Silver Week” holiday weekend running through Tuesday, in a sign of recovering local travel amid the coronavirus pandemic. The surge of domestic travel is a contrast to previous holidays, such as the summer Obon. Pressures were high for people living in urban congested areas not to visit families or play tourist in areas, where cases have been far fewer, with some regions having zero or a handful. The daily new cases of coronavirus infections in Tokyo have recently fluctuated at around 200 people. Japan does not have widespread testing and so many cases are likely going undetected. Baseball games, stores and theaters...

    In a landmark biography of Prince Philip, a distinguished Royal writer paints a compelling portrait of the Queen’s rock-steady companion as he nears his 100th birthday. Here, in the final part of our serialisation, she explains his complicated relationship with his children. On the forecourt of Buckingham Palace, the Grenadier Guards played a selection of nursery rhymes, ending with a special rendition of the Teddy Bears’ Picnic. Inside the Palace, Prince Charles was celebrating his fourth birthday in the white and gold music room with 14 friends. Furniture and priceless artefacts had been cleared away so that the heir to the throne and his guests could run up and down. It was, said one observer, ‘probably the lightest-hearted party given...
    By The Associated Press PARIS — Coronavirus infections tipped the scales again in France on Saturday with nearly 13,500 new infections in 24 hours. Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire is among them. He announced Friday in a tweet that he had tested positive with no symptoms and was working during self-isolation. The high-profile Le Maire is the fourth French minister to test positive since March. It was the second day in a row that new COVID-19 cases in France were above 13,000. The French health agency said Friday’s big jump was the result of one hospital in the Essonne region south of Paris belatedly reporting numerous cases. It wasn’t clear whether that kind of add-on effect was at play on...
    By The Associated Press PHOENIX — Arizona health officials on Saturday reported 610 additional coronavirus cases and 16 deaths, increasing the statewide totals to 213,551 confirmed cases and 5,467 deaths. According to Johns Hopkins University data analyzed by The Associated Press, the seven-day rolling average of daily new cases in Arizona rose over the past two weeks, from 575 new cases on Sept. 4 to 774 on Friday. The increase followed the state Department of Health Service’s recent changing of its case-counting methodology to adopt an updated national standard that includes “probable” results from less-accurate antigen testing. The counting change resulted in big bulges of additional cases Thursday and Friday as the department updated its records to include more than...
    Art is always about the little details. Millions of eyes have marveled at the gathering of ancient philosophers and mathematicians, statesmen and astronomers that Raphael imagines in his famous fresco. However, it would appear that a small detail near the center of the painting’s foreground, from which the meaning of the masterpiece arguably spills out, has gone almost completely unnoticed by historians and critics for half a millennium. That object transforms Rafael’s fresco from being a two-dimensional tribute to rational thought into a much deeper meditation on existence. To understand the symbolic function of that object, we must remember why Raphael painted the fresco, where it is located in the Vatican, and what the painting represents....
    By The Associated Press ROME — The Italian health ministry reported another 1,638 new cases of coronavirus and 24 deaths. The deaths brought Italy’s official coronavirus toll to 35,692, second highest in Europe after Britain. The health ministry says the new cases were based on a record 103,223 tests. While countries such as Germany have been processing more than double that number in recent days, Italy has been limited at around 100,000 tests. Public health officials said in their weekly monitoring report that Italy’s seven-week uptick in cases represented a “slow and progressive worsening of the outbreak.” However, it’s not as bad as in other European countries where new daily cases have exceeded 10,000. ___ HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO...
    Education Secretary Betsy DeVos called for Congress to pass coronavirus relief legislation with funding for school choice, warning that more private schools are on the brink of closing without federal help. "We need to have immediate relief for those schools," DeVos told Fox News in an interview. "Think about the impact of all of these kids who suddenly now are showing up at the traditional public school door because they no longer have this other option. That's a crisis in the making right there." Her comments come as at least 160 private schools have permanently closed so far this year as a result of economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic, and a recent court ruling against DeVos has limited relief fund...

    Parents and students at a high school in Dallas are outraged after a school assignment listed Kenosha gunman Kyle Rittenhouse as a 'hero for the modern age'. Among the list of heroes alongside Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old who shot and killed two Black Lives Matters protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last month, were activist Malcolm X and Mahatma Gandhi. Also on the list were George Floyd, Cesar Chavez and Joseph Rosenbaum - one of the two men Rittenhouse gunned down.  The assignment was given to seniors in an English class at W.T.

    A recent article in The Atlantic tells us that the pandemic has families leaving the public school system in droves and embracing homeschooling. This shift, we are told, may be permanent. From the article:  “Homeschooling families, which included roughly 3 percent of school-age children in the United States in 2016, have lots of different reasons for wanting to educate their own kids. But they’re united in a common assessment: They want out of the traditional system. The question is whether COVID-19 will cause a temporary bump in homeschooling as parents piece together their days during the pandemic or mark a permanent inflection point in education that continues long after the virus has been controlled. Some families may find that they...

    The Department of Education launched an investigation into Princeton University after its president declared that “racist assumptions” are “embedded in the structures” of the school itself, according to a department letter. Princeton President Christopher L.

    "Defiant Anti-masker" Reed Bender. One of the greatest issues with our country’s public health policy right now is how splintered and erratic the information being disseminated is. The lack of federal consistency in guidance and financial support, along with the intense politicization of the COVID-19 pandemic by Donald Trump and Sen. Mitch McConnell, has led to incredibly inconsistent applications of public health mandates and suggestions. It has also pitted public health policies and mandates up against the frequently amorphous political understandings of civil liberties. One such place facing issues like this is South Dakota, where a video recently went viral that shows a very large man, Reed Bender, being escorted out of a school board meeting by two police officers for refusing to wear...

    To get the students’ attention, the San Francisco teacher turned to someone familiar: Stephen Curry. Well, not the real Curry, but the idea of him. During a recent virtual class for Malcolm X Academy, a predominately Black elementary school in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood, Codion Isom asked his group of kindergarteners if they knew which Warriors player was 32 years old, 6-foot-3 and married to Ayesha. Referencing Warriors players is one of the ways the first-year teacher is able to hold his students’ attention. “‘Can you tell me what player that is?’” Isom recalled asking. “And some of the kids are like, ‘That’s Stephen Curry! That’s Stephen Curry!’ We’re always talking about them in the classroom.” Isom,...
