  • Federal court blocks ICE treatment of asylum seekers

    Jul 3, 2018

    WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Monday determined the U.S. government is violating its own rules regarding the treatment of people seeking asylum.

  • Minnesota Supreme Court OKs cameras in courtrooms in some cases

    Jul 3, 2018

    The Minnesota Supreme Court gave its stamp of approval Monday to cameras in the courtroom, making a three-year pilot project permanent. That doesn’t mean that media outlets, TV stations, newspapers and independent journalists will be able to film every court case — DWIs and murder trials, alike — from start to finish. The ruling, like the pilot project, permits audio and video recordings “after a guilty plea has been accepted or a guilty verdict has been returned.” http://www.startribune.com/supreme-court-oks-camer...

  • Judge says there's no fundamental right to learn to read and write

    Jul 3, 2018

    Few could dispute the importance of literacy. But children have no fundamental right to learn to read and write, according to a federal judge whose ruling in a closely watched lawsuit Friday left some disheartened and others raising questions. "I'm shocked," said Ivy Bailey, president of the Detroit Federation of Teachers. "The message that it sends is that education is not important. And it sends the message that we don't care if you're literate or not." https://www.freep.com/story/news/education/2018/07/01/detroit-literacy...

  • How some students are lowering or avoiding college tuition and student loans

    Jul 3, 2018
    1

    As many Americans struggle with student debt, a growing number of college-bound teenagers have found a way to sidestep as much as $44,000 in tuition expense, on average — and the loans that often go along with it. Enrollment is growing in early college programs, which allow high school students to take college courses in 11th and 12th grade, potentially cutting the time and money spent at four-year institutions in half. All official early colleges are public. https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2018/06/30/how-some-student...
