Despite Growing Income Inequality, Learning Gaps Between Rich And Poor Kids Are Actually Closing 27.8.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
In a country where the earnings and lifestyles of the richest and poorest citizens are increasingly disparate, education researchers are offering up a rare piece of good news: Despite a societal backdrop of widening income inequality, kids on opposite ends of the wealth spectrum are now entering kindergarten with closer levels of achievement than in the past, new research finds.  Two new studies out Friday in a journal of the American Educational Research Association illuminate this issue. The first looks at school readiness measures for kindergarten students, and finds that low-income students are coming to school with skills that more closely match those of their high-income peers than in previous decades. The second study looks at parental involvement in children’s lives, and offers a potential explanation for why the kindergarten readiness gap might be narrowing. It finds that across the board, parents are playing a more hands-on role in the educational experiences of their young children.  A ...

How This Organization Is Giving Homeless LGBT Youth New Hope 26.8.2016 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Jordan found himself spending sleepless nights in cars worried whether or not he would survive the night. Javier escaped the assaults of his family only to endure the reality of the streets. In this week’s Huffington Post Queer Voices RaiseAChild “Let Love Define Family®” series installment, RaiseAChild contributing writer Eric Criswell reports how these teens were robbed of the chance for a stable home life, until they found their way to the Los Angeles Youth Network (LAYN).

Many kids are kicked out of their homes or leave to avoid the continued abuse, only to find they must figure out a way to survive the heartless world of being homeless. “In Los Angeles County there are an estimated 10,000 homeless youth under the age of 18. A third of those will attempt suicide, and over 4,000 identify as gay, lesbian, or transgendered,” stated ...
