Why attorneys for Southern California schools blame victims for their own sexual abuse, bullying

When lawyers representing Moreno Valley Unified School District argued that 13-year-old Diego Stolz and his family were partly to blame for his death at the hands of two bullies, it wasn’t the first time such an argument was used — and likely won’t be the last. “I think it’s a disgusting strategy,” said lawyer Morgan Stewart, whose Irvine firm has sued districts whose defense attorneys have responded by blaming his clients for their alleged abuse. “It bothers me at a core level.” Lewis Brisbois ...

What Voltaire Meant When He Said That “We Must Cultivate Our Garden”: An Animated Introduction

“Voltaire’s goal in writing [his 1759 satire Candide] was to destroy the optimism of his times,” says Alain de Botton in the School of Life video above, “an optimism that centered around science, love, technical progress, and a faith in reason.” These beliefs were folly, Voltaire thought: the transfer of faith from a providential God to a perfect, clockwork universe. Candide satirizes this happy rationalism in Doctor Pangloss, whose belief that ours is the best of possible worlds comes d...

Coronavirus sheds light on how many Southern Californians still lack internet access

Jessica Lopez’s struggle to afford home internet service has always been inconvenient, making it tough for her 6-year-old daughter to do school assignments or for Lopez to complete online forms occasionally required by her employers at the Hilton of Anaheim. Now the coronavirus pandemic has moved her daughter’s kindergarten entirely online and shuttered her hotel, eliminating her job busing tables. And Lopez said her lack of internet access is forcing some tough decisions. Though she’s trying to...

What Happened to U.S. Cities That Practiced–and Didn’t Practice–Social Distancing During 1918’s “Spanish Flu”

Americans have long been accused of growing socially distant, bowling alone, as Robert Putnam wrote in 2000, or worse becoming radicalized as "lone wolves" and isolated trolls. But we are seeing how much we depend on each other as social distancing becomes the painful normal. Not quite quarantine, social distancing involves a semi-voluntary restriction of our movements. For many people, this is, as they say, a big ask. But no matter what certain world leaders tell us, if at all possible,...

This Northridge math camp is building confidence, one equation at a time

While teaching math in Ventura and Moorpark, Cat Gaspard noticed her middle and high school students were letting self-doubt get in the way of success. “A big thing that holds students back in math is anxiety, just that attitude of ‘I’m not a math person.’” Gaspard said. “I watched kids almost sweat when you put a quiz in front of them.” Meanwhile, administrators and teachers at Northridge Academy High School had a problem. Students’ math scores were discouragingly low at the Los Angeles Unified...

These Are the Best Books for Each College Major, According to Students (Part 1)

We polled students on their favorite for-class reads. Every once in a while you get a book assigned to you for a class that actually changes your life. Maybe it's the book that makes you realize that this is what you're meant to study, or the novel that alters your perspective on your field.Through my political science classes, I've been fortunate to have several of books that have done just that, but I'm always on the lookout for new books to read in the subjects that I ordinarily don't get to...

More colleges add free food pantries as ‘starving student’ cliche becomes reality

Steve Hoang had more than schoolwork to fret about his first year of college.

Stop Attacking The Education Department For Enforcing Title IX, 80 Advocacy Groups Say

A coalition of 80 organizations representing women, the LGBT community and minority groups issued a letter Wednesday defending the U.S. Department of Education’s increased Title IX enforcement efforts.  Led by the National Women’s Law Center, the groups argue that critics of how the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights is enforcing Title IX are wrong to say students accused of sexual assault are being denied due process rights. The letter further insists the Education Department did n...
