Anyone going to MEGA conference in Mobile this summer (July 14-18)? This conference is a great place to find out the latest from the state department! I booked a nice room at Home2Suites in Mobile through Priceline. I just found out I have to cancel and they have a NO CANCELLATION policy. I would love to transfer this to someone and get back my money ($500 total). Please message me if you are interested. This is a hotel with free parking, free breakfast, and only a 7-minute drive from the conference. (suite with kitchen and sofa).

Sleepless No More In Seattle — Later School Start Time Pays Off For Teens

Delaying school start times to match teenage sleep rhythms...Seattle schools are starting the day later. Click the NPR story below to find out more.

American teens are chronically sleep deprived, in part because of early school start times. But how much difference can a later start make? As Seattle's school district found out, it can help a lot.

The American Dream Is Harder To Find In Some Neighborhoods

A new online map called the “Opportunity Atlas” is live today. It provides an interesting look by zip code at where children have the most opportunity to succeed. It has a number of filters that can be used. NPR did a story about the atlas this morning. We’ve attached it here. Take a listen and then explore this free online data tool.

A new data tool finds a strong correlation between where people grew up and their chances of climbing the economic ladder. Charlotte, N.C., hopes to use it to improve residents' economic mobility.

Why aren't kids being taught to read?

An instructional leader..."The main idea seemed to be: Give kids lots of good books, and with some guidance and enough practice, they become readers. "We never looked at brain research," she said. "We had never, ever looked at it. Never." This is a fascinating public radio broadcast on the state of reading instruction in American schools. Take a listen and let us know your thoughts.

Scientific research has shown how children learn to read and how they should be taught. But many educators don't know the science and, in some cases, actively resist it. As a result, millions of kids are being set up to fail.
