the pendulum swings too far on school accountability


is california’s committment to school accountability dead? probably not, but it’s certainly withering.the days of california’s academic performance index and the federal no child left behind act are over, and they won’t be missed. the api’s obsessive insistence on measuring schools solely on the basis of a couple of annual tests led to an era in which arts, science and physical fitness were given short shrift. no child left behind layered a set of rigid, punitive rules on top, and the obama administration’s attempts to dictate school policy through its race to the top initiative was overly intrusive.the new federal education law, the every student succeeds act, will at least be less harsh, and under the state’s new accountability system, there’s a lot more to rating a school than its score

conflict over hair color signals time to leave


a coercive partner who doesn’t understand “no” is a sign, carolyn hax writes, that this is not about hair and that this reader must heed those resentful feelings and get out of a controlling, emotionally abusive relationship.adapted from a recent online discussion.dear carolyn: do you think it’s possible to “just stop feeling resentful” when you are repeatedly coerced into situations you clearly stated you didn’t want to get into?example: my partner pressures me to change the color of my hair from time to time. “pressures” because even though i tell them that no, i’m not willing to bleach my hair again, or anymore, they start telling me how selfish and coldhearted i am.i know that if i told my partner that it would make me resentful — which would aggravate the already resentful air this re

new york -- mayor eric garcetti spoke exclusively with cbs news on friday, reflecting on how the history of the 1992 los angeles riots has shaped the city over the years.garcetti said the disconnect between the public and authorities appeared to be the main source of turmoil years ago. "los angeles in 1992 was a different place," garcetti said. "it was much more segregated. [people] felt helpless because their voices hadn't been heard. this was something that happened long before there were cell phones." "we had too many disconnects where there was no accountability," he continued. "we had to find projects to bring our city together. ultimately, it took the federal government's consent to take over our police department."   garcetti says he is hopeful about the future safety of the city, w
