Oregon, other states putting names of ousted police online
In the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in police custody, Oregon has released the names of over 1,700 officers whose transgressions over the past 50 years were so serious that they were banned from working in law enforcement in the state. The online posting last week came after the state Legislature created a law requiring the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training to establish a statewide public database of officers whose certification has been revoked or suspended. "Those who are revoked have tarnished the badge and no longer have the trust of their community, their agency, or our agency as the certifying body," department director Eriks Gabliks told The Associated Press.

America is not prepared for schools opening this fall. This will be bad
We're just weeks from schools opening, and they aren't ready. Parents, children, teachers - everyone will be affected The public school district in Charlottesville, Virginia, has proposed a model for schooling this fall that resembles what most districts are trying to do. Because state health officials recommend putting three to six feet between students, and because classrooms were already crowded and schools over-enrolled, the district leadership has decided to alternate attendance. Half the student population will attend Mondays and Wednesdays. The other half will attend Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fridays will be for teacher preparation and deep cleaning.As a working parent of a school-age child, the prospect of my child attending school for two days a week, and staying home alone to do school work (or not) the three days a week, is frustrating. I have the means, flexibility and job security to cope with it. My kid will be able to get lunch every day. She has good wifi and multiple computers at home. But she would still have to write off an entire year of high school as a wasted opportunity. The course quality will be lousy and she'll have minimal social engagement. No club meetings. No homecoming. No "Friday night lights". It's heartbreaking. But because we have the resources, she will be fine in the long run. It will be even harder for other people. Consider my neighbor. She's a single parent with three school-aged children in three different schools. She works for an hourly wage as a fo
