National Review: For 50 years, inner-city Catholic schools have been shuttering, victims of shifting city demographics, changes in the workforce, the advent of charter schooling, and much more. Impoverished families have too few accessible school options to begin with, but this phenomenon has been especially painful. A substantial body of evidence shows that Catholic schools have an unusual ability to help underserved kids succeed.

U.S. News & World Report -- Research linking maternity leave to children's early development or longer-term outcomes is limited and mixed, in part because many studies of maternity leave policies use data from other developed countries that start with a higher baseline level of parental leave than the United States.

U.S. News & World Report -- Speculating about how many and what kind of students were opting out of standardized tests was a fun education parlor game this spring. Highly energized proponents claimed the opt-out movement was a diverse cross-section of public school students.

U.S. News & World Report -- The emerging teacher shortages in California and other states offer a warning about the future of the teaching profession. But they also create an opportunity for policymakers and preparation programs to fundamentally rethink how our nation recruits and trains teachers. Let's hope they rise to the challenge.

U.S. News & World Report -- Both charter schools and publicly funded pre-K can improve learning for children in poverty. Together, they have the potential to do even more to close the achievement gap for at-risk students. Yet policies in many states prevent charter schools from serving pre-K students. This is a huge missed opportunity – one that's only going to get worse as charters and pre-K continue to grow.
