Former LA County Supervisor Don Knabe gives scholarships to Safe Surrender survivors

Cerritos resident Don Knabe, during his time as a Los Angeles County supervisor, championed the Safe Surrender Law to keep babies from being abandoned — and now he’s helping two of the saved infants go to college. Knabe lobbied the state legislature in 2001 to pass the law, which allows women to give up their newborn infants without penalty if they are turned in at a fire station, hospital or police station. Knabe then strengthened components of implementing the law before beginning the program ...

School names latest target in effort to account for racist legacies of historical figures

Michael Chwe was surprised – and motivated to act. The UCLA economics professor received his bachelor’s degree from the California Institute of Technology, in Pasadena, and remembers well the reverence for Robert A. Millikan, a renowned physicist and the university’s first president, around campus. The Nobel Prize recipient, Chwe said, represented a sort of demigod. But then, the current racial justice movement sprang up, in the wake of the Memorial Day killing of George Floyd. And Chwe, through...

Coronavirus unlikely to be spread by children, research suggests

As schools contemplate reopening amid rising COVID-19 cases, an awkward truth is emerging: We’re the problem, not our kids. For months, we’ve kept children carefully isolated, pleading with them to behave, wear masks, wipe their boogers and not hug Gram and Grandpa. We’ve assumed this new virus acts just like the flu and common cold — so classrooms full of kids would create one giant cootie colony. But a growing body of research suggests young children aren’t responsible for most viral transmiss...

Cuts to LAUSD police budget could affect valuable mentor programs, advocates say

A popular program that mentors students — and in some cases fosters the type of future law enforcement officers that advocates for police reform say are badly needed — could be impacted when the Los Angeles Unified School District cuts funding to its police force by 35%. While details have yet to be finalized, the Los Angeles School Police Department will face a $25 million reduction, likely to result in the loss of roughly 65 campus police officers as well as reductions to mentoring programs su...

Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday seemed to bolster President Donald Trump’s threat to cut funding for schools that don’t reopen in the fall. When asked during a press briefing if Trump was serious about his threat, Pence noted that “roughly percent” of states’ education funding comes from the federal government (however, that funding is ultimately determined by Congress, not the White House). “As we work with Congress on the next round of state support, we’re going to be working for way...
