    This story is part of “Parenting in a Pandemic,” WTOP’s continuing coverage of how parents are dealing with child care, schooling and more through the coronavirus pandemic. For many parents, the stress of juggling work from home and their children’s virtual learning is overwhelming. But one expert says with a little forward thinking, doing less could be more beneficial. Ann Dolin, president of Educational Connections tutoring center, told WTOP the best way to manage your child’s learning from home is to “prioritize completion over quality.” “Really right now, parents’ job is to make sure kids are logged in on time, they’re engaged with their teacher and they do their work, and leave the quality up to the teacher,” she said.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Most of New York City public schools children who signed up for in-person learning won’t set foot in a classroom until next week.

    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. Will students be taught by an actual teacher or not? Kramer put the question to Mayor Bill de Blasio. “Will everybody who goes into an in-person learning situation be learning directly with the teacher or will some of them have to do remote...

    A career in academia wasn’t supposed to be this demoralizing. Footage from a “Teacher of the Year” ceremony in Russia earlier this month is raising eyebrows for its highly suggestive processional involving an objectively phallic statuette. Russian news outlet ASTV later called the awards “awkward,” Daily Mail reported, while event producers admitted the trophy had a “strange” and “ambiguous” shape. The contest on September 7, in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk on Sakhalin Island, just north of the Japanese archipelago, was sponsored by top international oil companies, including Russian state oil company Rosneft, Japan’s Sakhalin Oil Development Corp. (SODECO), India’s ONGC Videsh and ExxonMobil subsidiary Neftegas Limited. Now people are asking why the contestants — primarily women — were forced to proceed in...

    Asymptomatic children can transmit COVID-19 to adults, research by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed.  A new CDC study, published on Friday, traced 184 students, teachers and family members connected to three daycare centers in Salt Lake City, Utah between April 1 and July 10.  Doctors and researchers have noted that children are less likely to be severely impacted by the coronavirus than their adult counterparts.

    In the history of love stories, few have been as strange and unlikely as the one depicted in My Octopus Teacher. Netflix’s first original South African feature documentary concerns the wholly unexpected, and ostensibly transformative, affair struck between Craig Foster, a South African filmmaker, and an amphibious mollusk that he discovered in the Atlantic Ocean near the small seaside bungalow he frequented as a kid. It’s a relationship that transcends all boundaries, and serves as a quietly profound (and crazy) portrait of the bonds we share with everything in our environment—even if its cinematic depiction is sometimes far from perfect. Debuting on the streaming service Sept. 7, My Octopus Teacher is an intimate non-fiction film that, directed by Pippa Ehrlich...
    In 2016, Pennsylvania special education teacher Jane Scilovati voted for Donald Trump, because “I thought he was going to shake up the system.” In 2020, she’s so committed to not voting for Trump that she appears in an American Federation of Teachers ad against Trump. The AFT is putting six figures into a digital ad campaign featuring the ad. “Pennsylvania voters know that Trump has failed to work for their families because his Administration has prioritized politics and enriching himself and his cronies over responding to a global pandemic,” AFT President Randi Weingarten said in a statement. “Make no mistake,” she added, “there are more teachers like Jane who recognize how dangerous a second Trump presidency would pose for both...

    Dear Amy: With knowledge comes broader perspective. I am a person of color. While studying for my Ph.D. in clinical psychology, I have realized that many things about my upbringing were wrong. Columnist Amy Dickinson (Bill Hogan/Chicago Tribune)  In light of the social environment at the moment, the actions of one teacher hang heavy in my heart and mind. In elementary school, we played a game in gym. It was an obstacle course on floor scooters, and we played it in the dark. It was a huge hit, and everyone loved it. The problem is that we would play it in February, Black History Month, and the game was called The Underground Railroad. Everyone I mention this to says how...

Teachers and administrators from Hillsborough County rallied against the reopening of schools due to health and safety concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As the new school year gets ready to kick off, school districts across America are faced with what appears to be lose-lose situation: Do we have in-class instruction and put the health of our students, faculty, and staff in jeopardy, or should we stick with online learning and risk having an entire generation of students suffer academically? Despite murmurings of a nationwide teacher strike over the lack of safety precautions and state guidance for reopening schools, most...
    SAN ANTONIO – With the new school year just weeks away for San Antonio school districts, many parents, students and teachers still have questions about how new protocols will work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Libertarian: The Vaccine Race at the Finish Line Reason’s Ronald Bailey reports some good news: “The biotechnology company Moderna just launched the first Phase Three clinical trial of a coronavirus vaccine” that will “test for efficacy and safety” after a Phase One trial that “induced an immune response” in every volunteer. Moderna’s success rests on “novel technology that uses messenger RNA” to mobilize a recipient’s immune system against the virus. “If all goes well, the company could deliver 100 million doses by early fall,” and Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Novavax also plan to begin Phase Three trials soon. Such promising signs are only possible because the Food and Drug Administration temporarily set aside burdensome regulations, perhaps saving “hundreds of thousands of...

    Andres Aceves July 26, 2020 4:00PM (UTC) There were so many bad memes circulating at the time, but the one that broke me for good still hangs vivid in my memory: picture an alarmingly red canvas with the phrase "LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT" waving arms in all caps from the top, and thereafter a list of stalwart border-enforcement strategies in North Korea, Afghanistan and Iran, followed by a description of the unconscionable bounty a person supposedly receives when they enter the United States illegally from Mexico (Social Security, health insurance, was there something about a minor-league baseball franchise?). The meme has since been relegated to the internet's darker recesses because, of course, it was wrong in virtually every...

    There’s a magical place in New York City. When I’m there, it’s hard to remember that I’m still within the city limits. The weather is often different there than it is anywhere else in the city. There are rarely any taxis. There are a couple of subway stops, but they’re run with the kind of dreamy inefficiency better suited to a sleepy Italian village than the NYC MTA. The people there sound like they’re from Brooklyn or Queens (or both) but dress like they’re going surfing, because they often are—the beach is never more than five minutes away. This Brigadoon-ish place is a spit of land that launches itself off Queens into the Atlantic Ocean, where it curves around Brook­lyn....

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A lawsuit has been filed against two school districts. They’re accused of failing to protect young women from a sexual predator. Palisades and Parkland School Districts in Lehigh and Bucks Counties are alleged to have “passed the trash” and “buried their heads in the sand” when dealing with a teacher turned pervasive child sex predator. That’s according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday and obtained exclusively by CBS3. “Until you do protect the vulnerable and most especially young children, you’re not doing anything. Having policies in and of itself is not sufficient,” attorney Stew Ryan said. The blistering allegations laid out in the suit come after ex-teacher Christian Willman in January pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a half-dozen...

    Lynn Lorenz, a retired teacher who lives on a bluff above the Newport Beach harbor, emerged from her home Thursday morning wearing a mask. Nobody turned and stared, as if she were wearing a lampshade over her head. But Lorenz definitely stood out. On the first 15 minutes of her daily stroll, we saw more than a dozen people, and nobody was wearing a face covering. Not walkers, not runners, not dog owners, not a woman headed to the park with three kids. Lorenz said she’s gotten dirty looks from people for being masked. As if she’s the one who’s a bad neighbor. “They’re thinking either that I’m a liberal, or that in Newport Beach, having to wear a mask...

    Vili Fualaau, the sixth-grade student that Mary Kay Letourneau raped in the 1990s and later married, 'lost a piece of himself' when she died earlier this week, a friend has revealed.   Letourneau, 58, passed away at home in Des Monies, Washington, on Monday surrounded by family members following a quiet nine-month battle with stage four colon cancer.

The pair later wed in 2005 after she was released from prison before he filed for legal separation in 2017. Though their controversial romance never found its happily-ever-after, in the three...
