    Child Watch® Column: "A Call for Education Equity"
    Title I was created "to ensure all children a fair and equal opportunity to obtain a high-quality education." However, the formula for distributing Title I funds is stacked against the very children it was most intended to help.

    Child Watch® Column: "Remembering Jaime Escalante"
    When Jaime Escalante died of cancer on March 30, we lost a pioneering teacher who changed people's ideas of what children are capable of learning. Many people know about Escalante's work from the popular movie "Stand and Deliver," which depicted his success teaching Advanced Placement (AP) calculus classes to students at East Los Angeles's Garfield High School.

    Child Watch® Column: "The Dangerous Drift Back Towards Segregated Schools"
    Two recent decisions by school boards in North Carolina are local signs of a troubling national trend towards resegregation in public schools. In New Hanover County, which includes Wilmington, parents and advocates spent much of last year debating a new middle school redistricting plan that would focus on "neighborhood schools," essentially resegregating the schools by race and economic class because our neighborhoods look that way.

    Child Watch® Column: "Rosenwald Schools: Reclaiming a Legacy"
    Across the country, schoolchildren have been studying Black History Month. But many Americans know very little about a group of schools that educated hundreds of thousands of Black children and are their own key piece of Black history. From 1913 to 1932, nearly 5,000 "Rosenwald schools" were built in 15 states, mostly in rural Southern communities.
