Early education a good bipartisan issue

mysanantonio.com — Jim Messina, the campaign manager for President Barack Obama in 2012, and Kevin Madden, a senior adviser to Mitt Romney’s rival campaign that year, wrote a joint memo this month advocating that both parties back investments in early education. “Perhaps the biggest political opportunity for both parties lies in the nonpartisan issue of early childhood education,” Messina and Madden wrote.

Thoughts on Ferguson

kristof.blogs.nytimes.com — With the renewed violence in Ferguson in light of a St. Louis County grand jury's decision not to bring charges against Darren Wilson, we're once again caught in a painful debate about race in America today. Here are five articles I've written recently that may be useful in this conversation.

An outrage driven by three myths

timesunion.com — Harper's Weekly despairs that these immigrants are "steeped in ignorance" and account for a disproportionate share of criminals. Boy, those foreigners were threatening â€" back in the mid-1800s when those statements were made about Irish immigrants.

If politicians love kids, they would invest in early education

seattletimes.com — Originally published Saturday, November 22, 2014 at 3:04 PM We Americans love children. Indeed, we love them so much that, on average, child-care workers earn almost as much per hour ($10.33) as workers who care for animals ($10.82), according to a new study from the University of California, Berkeley.

Immigration Enriches You and Me

nytimes.com — A BOOK, "The Christian Examiner," warns that "ill-clad and destitute" immigrants are "repulsive to our habits and our tastes." A former mayor of New York City cautions that they bring disease, "wretchedness and want" to America. And Harper's Weekly despairs that these immigrants are "steeped in ignorance" and account for a disproportionate share of criminals.

Nicholas Kristof: Do politicians love kids?

sacbee.com — We don't invest in proven ways to help children start off right.

Becoming the Symbol of Street Harassment

kristof.blogs.nytimes.com — I feel like the Mockingjay. For those of you who are not Hunger Games fans, Katniss, the protagonist in Suzanne Collins' story, is thrust into being the face of the revolution. Katniss did not initially choose to present herself as the Mockingjay, a symbol of rebellion, but she agrees with the cause and does everything within her power to assist the group she believes in.

Do Politicians Love Kids?

nytimes.com — We Americans love children. Indeed, we love them so much that, on average, child care workers earn almost as much per hour ($10.33) as workers who care for animals ($10.82), according to a new study from the University of California, Berkeley.

"Please Don't Abandon Me"

kristof.blogs.nytimes.com — Note: Asia Bibi, a Christian Pakistani woman, was sentenced to death for blasphemy against Islam in 2010. The year before, while picking fruit with Muslim women, she took a sip of water from the local well. She was immediately accused of making the water impure by ​the other workers, ​who told her that they could no longer use the well.

Death Without Regrets

kristof.blogs.nytimes.com — I think that few of us consider the impact of our daily activities on the final accounting anyone might render at the time of our death. Because I have had cancer for more than 15 years now, I have had a lot of time to think about this.
