Persian book festival coming to Irvine

When Bahareh Hedayat wanted to find immersion classes in Persian language and culture for her young children, she couldn’t find any close to home. So the Irvine resident created her own language immersion and cultural center. The non-profit, Bahar Kids, now is gearing to host its second annual Persian Children’s Book Festival on Feb. 24.

As Art Institutes and Argosy University enter receivership, what’s next?

Dream Center Education Holdings, which operates Orange County’s first law school as well as several Argosy University and Art Institute campuses in Southern California, has been placed in federal receivership as options are sought to get out of millions of dollars of debt.

With LAUSD’s teachers ready to strike, Southern California school districts are watching

As nearly 30,000 teachers stand ready to take to the picket lines in the Los Angeles Unified School district on Monday, districts from the Inland Empire to Orange County will be watching.

San Bernardino will pay $390k to settle suit against cop who arrested 7th graders "to prove a point"

In 2013, San Bernardino Sheriff’s Deputy Luis Ortiz took the decision to arrest a group of seventh grade girls -- 12 and 13 year olds -- because they wouldn't speak when he demanded to know who among them had been the aggressors and who had been the victims in a series of bullying incidents; Ortiz's rationale for these arrests was that the girls were "unresponsive and disrespectful" and that by arresting them, he could "prove a point," that he wasn't "playing around" and this would "make [them]...

Need faster internet speeds at school? 9 Cal State University campuses to upgrade connection from 10 gigabytes to 100 gigabytes

Come the fall of 2018, Cal State students at nine campuses — including Long Beach, San Bernardino, Pomona, Fullerton and Northridge — will no longer need to slog through a slow internet connection. In a move that will save the Cal State system money in the long run, the campuses will upgrade their 10 gigabyte-a-second connection to a 100 gigabyte-a-second internet connection. The upgrade in Long Beach and San Diego are already done. The need for the bandwidth is long overdue, said Michel Davidof...

Was Trump’s election a ‘Sputnik moment’ for civics education?

After a brutal 2016 presidential election, pundits predicted that, if nothing else, the election of Donald J. Trump as president would serve as a “Sputnik moment” for civics education. Americans of all political stripes, they said, had realized politics matter and that voting – or not – has real consequences. In 1957, when the Soviet Union launched the first man-made satellite into space, interest in science education skyrocketed. Soon, Americans were landing astronauts on the moon. Eighteen mon...

School threat reports pour in and are being taken seriously, Southern California experts say

In the week since police say Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people at a Florida high school, reports of threats of violence against schools in Southern California and around the nation have poured in to police departments and schools. Such threats are not new, police say, and whether the actual number has increased in Southern California since the Feb. 14 tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High is debatable, experts say. But it’s clear that the threats on social media and in conversations are getting m...

10 years of change: What new census says about 20 Southern California cities

Big cities got bigger and a couple mid-sized cities exploded. Immigration didn’t change as much as you might think. And while property values haven’t fully recovered, post-recession, the cost of renting a home or apartment has surged, adding to conditions that have resulted in broad jumps in homelessness. Those are some of the ways in which Southern California has changed over the past decade, according to Census Bureau estimates released to the public today. Though the census numbers show some ...

How to Respond to the Challenges of Our Time?: Jazz Legends Herbie Hancock & Wayne Shorter Give 10 Pieces of Advice to Young Artists, and Everyone Else

Some moments in history strike us as dramatic ruptures. Certainties are superseded, thrown into chaos by a seismic event, and we find ourselves adrift and anxious. What are artists to do? Gripped by the same fears as everyone else, the same sense of urgency, writers, musicians, filmmakers, painters, etc. may find themselves unable to “breathe with unconditional breath / the unconditioned air,” as Wendell Berry once described the creative process. We might remember the radical break w...
