Even in the worst performing schools there are students (regardless of how few) who are doing well academically.

At what point will the NRA and its adherents concede that the safety of America and Americans supersedes the rights of individuals, including terrorists, to own guns and massive amounts of ammunition? The information provided in the NY Times Op-Ed by Ms. Grower deserves serious consideration. All of us as citizens need to call our Congressional Representatives to demand action. They respond favorably to the NRA Gun Lobby and other groups; they should be held…Continue

It certainly pays to have a tech-savvy president who understands this Internet issue. Here is what is puzzling: why would anyone objects to someone else, and in particular to the President of the United States being technically savvy!?

There are times when it can really matter that a nonprofit's board and staff step-out to support legislation that supports its mission. When nonprofits sit on the side-lines of political discussion, unlike the AARP or similar member organizations, bad things can result for nonprofits.
Take for example the bins that are used by Salvation Army and Goodwill. These recycling collectors have pretty much defined the industry where folks can donate their goods for cause. Well, the for-profit…Continue

It of course is worth saying that volunteers and donated goods and services matter and matter a lot, but unrestricted assets and income equally matters and often are a game changer for a nonprofit's pursuit of ission.

The beauty is-- Ms. Lopez was recently telling her mother that she was feeling worn out; she needed to move to another school; she doubted she was having an impact. Her mother wisely told her that she is where she needs to…Continue
