How will 4-year-olds find joy in learning if they lack food, sleep, medicine and shelter?

A recent explosion of research from the neurobiological, behavioral, and social sciences has illuminated new knowledge about how children learn. Research from neuroscience now confirms that the first years of life are critical for developing the architecture of the brain and future capacities to learn. These understandings have led policymakers to recognize the importance of the early years and to call for investments in “high quality early learning.” But what does “high quality early learning” mean? And what does it actually look...

On-time high school graduation rate in Virginia tops 91 percent

More than 90 percent of Virginia’s high school Class of 2016 graduated on time, the highest rate recorded since the state changed how it tracks high school graduations nearly a decade ago.

Supreme Court to decide if offensive names such as 'Redskins' and 'Slants' can be trademarked

The Supreme Court agreed Thursday to decide whether The Slants, an Asian American rock band from Portland, Ore., can trademark its name despite the government’s objection that it is an offensive term. This clash between free speech and trademark protection has drawn wide attention in part because the Washington Redskins football team is locked in the same dispute. The court also said it will decide a free-speech dispute involving fees charged to merchants who accept credit cards. Under challenge are laws in California, New York, Florida,...

Proposed casino project stirs emotions in Otter Tail County

DENT, MINN. — In this remote stretch of Otter Tail County, where cows outnumber people and mom-and-pop resorts dot the lakeshores, ambitious plans for a sparkling new casino and hotel are stirring up some of the locals. Within the next two years, this largely rural area where water covers three-fourths of the countryside will be home to a casino development that promises to bring thousands of visitors and hundreds of workers to a locale where a no-stoplight town such as Dent, population 193, counts as a major city. The proposed 270-acre...

Casinos boost Minnesota's entire economy, tribal report says

Casinos have pumped billions of dollars into Minnesota tribal economies over the past 25 years — and while the state doesn’t get a cut of the profits, the Minnesota Indian Gaming Association says the whole state has cashed in. Tribal casinos employ thousands of Minnesotans and draw millions of visitors each year, according to a report released this week that offers a glimpse into tribal gaming’s closely guarded finances. From payroll to purchasing to tourist dollars, tribal casinos pump an estimated $1.8 billion in direct and indirect...

Lawmakers ask Wells Fargo CEO: 'Why shouldn't you be in jail?'

WASHINGTON — Angry lawmakers heaped another round of blistering criticism on Wells Fargo's CEO, pressing Thursday for details about what senior managers knew about allegedly illegal sales practices and when any concerns were disclosed. Chief Executive John Stumpf, newly stripped of tens of millions in compensation, told the House Financial Services Committee that the bank is expanding its review of accounts and will evaluate executives' roles. But as during the grilling he received last week from a Senate panel, Stumpf remained on the...

Oil CEO Says Bribing Native Americans Will Stop Dakota Protests

The CEO of North Dakota’s biggest oil company said that simply paying off native communities with oil-related work would defuse the ongoing standoff against the US$3.7 billion Dakota Access pipeline. Native American communities say that economics are not a factor when faced with the irreparable damage that the pipeline. James J. Volker, CEO of Whiting Petroleum Corp, said that economic opportunities such as oil service contracts and jobs related to the oil industry, such as water hauling, could be given to Native American-owned companies....

USA TODAY's Editorial Board: Trump is 'unfit for the presidency'

In the 34-year history of USA TODAY, the Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race. Instead, we’ve expressed opinions about the major issues and haven’t presumed to tell our readers, who have a variety of priorities and values, which choice is best for them. Because every presidential race is different, we revisit our no-endorsement policy every four years. We’ve never seen reason to alter our approach. Until now. This year, the choice isn’t between two capable major party nominees who happen to have significant...

US paper facing threats for endorsing Hillary Clinton

Los Angeles (AFP) - A conservative Arizona newspaper is facing death threats and losing subscriptions after it broke with tradition and endorsed Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump for US president, a senior editor told AFP Thursday. The Phoenix-based Arizona Republic, the state's largest newspaper, announced in an editorial on Tuesday that it was backing a Democrat for the first time since it was founded in 1890, on the grounds that Trump was neither conservative nor qualified to be president. The paper's editorial board said that while...

Obama: Peres won his wars but understood the need for peace

JERUSALEM — President Barack Obama hailed Shimon Peres Friday as a man who showed the world that justice and hope are at the heart of the Zionist ideal and saw "all people as deserving of dignity and respect." Wearing a Jewish skullcap as a sign of respect and reverence, Obama said he was the 10th president to fall prey to Peres' charms and they forged an unlikely friendship, despite the nearly four-decade gap in their ages and starkly different backgrounds. "It was so surprising to see the two of us, where we had started, talking together...

Trump wanted less-attractive women fired, employees said in court records

LOS ANGELES – Donald Trump wanted only the pretty ones, his employees said. After the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes opened for play in 2005, its world-famous owner didn’t stop by more than a few times a year to visit. When Trump did visit, the club’s managers went on alert. They scheduled the young, thin, pretty women on staff to work the clubhouse restaurant — because when Trump saw less-attractive women working at his club, according to court records, he wanted them fired. http://www.startribune.c...

Navajo, feds sign agreement giving tribe greater control over schools

WASHINGTON – Federal officials signed an agreement with Navajo leaders Tuesday giving the tribe the authority to implement a single set of standards, assessments and accountability measures for tribal schools that are scattered over three states. Before the agreement between Navajo officials and the secretaries of Education and the Interior, the tribe’s 66 Bureau of Indian Education-funded schools were subject to regulation by Arizona, New Mexico, Utah or the BIE. “You’re not dealing with the complexities of three different states and...

Obama Administration Gives Historic Control of Education System to Navajo Nation

In what Navajo Nation tribal leaders lauded as an historic agreement with the Bureau of Indian Education and the Department of the Interior, the Obama Administration has approved the first phase of the Navajo Nation’s request to implement an alternative system of accountability for schools. In addition to giving control to the Navajo Nation as to how they teach their Navajo youth, the Obama Administration also is issuing two new rounds of federal grants totaling nearly $25 million to support native youth and educators. According to a joint...

President Obama Kept His Promises to Native Americans

We’ve all gotten used to presidential candidates making promises that they don’t/can’t keep when they get elected. But no group in American history has been on the receiving end of more broken promises than Native Americans. In the scheme of political campaigns, those issues aren’t usually on anyone’s radar. Perhaps that is why no one payed much attention when candidate Barack Obama made some promises to Native Americans back in 2008. In that clip Obama said he would host an annual White House Tribal Nations Conference in order to...

Congress goes on break again after failing to pass spending bills

Congress went on break for another six weeks without acting on funding for Indian Country. Instead, lawmakers on Wednesday night gave final approval to a "continuing resolution" that keeps the federal government running through December 9. The move averts a shutdown and came ahead of a deadline of October 1, which marks the start of fiscal year 2017. "I have said many times before, a continuing resolution is a last resort. But, it is what we must do to fulfill our congressional responsibility to keep the lights on in our government," Rep. Hal...
