In the wake of school shootings, debate around LAUSD’s wanding policy heightens

Twenty-six years ago, as the superintendent of Inglewood Unified School District, George J. McKenna III penned an editorial arguing against increased armed police at schools, fences around campuses and at metal detectors at school entrances. McKenna had seen how far a dedicated and sensitive school staff – along with student-peer counseling, engaged parents and a caring atmosphere – could go at a gang-infested South Los Angeles high school.

Real Talk: Dealing with Pregnancy Boredom

If you are feeling bored with your pregnancy, do not feel bad; you are not the only one who has felt this way. Yes, sure, pregnancy is a miracle, but the novelty can wear off a few months in when you get tired of all of the things you can’t eat, can’t do, and can’t get away from. Feeling this way is completely normal, especially in your third trimester, and doesn’t mean anything bad. Although postpartum depression is the most commonly talked-about depression when it comes to discussions of pre...
