For someone who is blind, a simple click can be the sound of sight. It's a technique called echolocation. Bats and other animals use it to see at night. And it's being used by an increasing number of people who are blind. They listen to how the clicking sounds they make with their tongues bounce off the world around them. It can help them navigate through space – on foot or on a bicycle. The link to the full story from Invisibilia is in our profile. (Credit: Daniel Horowitz for NPR) #invisibilia #illustration #podcast

Carolyn Barnhardt's prekindergarten students at John Eaton Elementary School celebrated Rev.

Teachers all over the country are finding ways to talk about King's legacy. In one Washington, D.C., classroom the lessons about race come alive. The link to the full story is in our profile.

Grief is a fact of life in our nation's schools. "Virtually all children will go through it — but that doesn't mean it's a normalizing experience," says Dr. David Schonfeld, an expert on student grief. The link to the full story is in our profile.

hairartiststephanie : My husband just passed away before the new year. I have 3 school age children. I am so thankful that we homeschool because there is so much grace and mercy needed for children dealing with grief. My fear for public school is that teachers will only care about performance and not my children's emotional health. I'm glad to know that this is a topic of discussion.
rodriguj1978 : @hairartiststephanie I don't know you but I'm very sorry to hear that you recently lost your husband. I am sending you a strangers good thoughts and hope for your children are doing okay. I teach 3rd grade in MI and deeply believe (and teach) in a way that supports children's emotional and social development. While state expectations pile on top of my other academic responsibilities, how a child comes to me and leaves me at the end of the day is ultimately more important. In my five years of teaching I have had two students lose parents. Luckily there are wonderful grief resources here, but I also befriended these boys, supported them and helped nurture them through their loss. I made a connection with their families that was well received. Not all teachers are the same. But much more many of us are loving individuals that care deeply for children as individuals.
tavrolls : This is a great eye opening, mind expanding article. We've recently lost my parents (my daughters grandparents) who lived with us for years. She started HS this year (in an honors program) and most teachers do not have a clue how to deal with grief and trauma. My daughter was also badly injured at school and that just seemed to leave her more vulnerable to be judged by her teachers. It's an uphill battle that breaks my heart every day. Seriously would love to see grieving programs in schools that encourage children and keep them on the path they should be. So sorry for your loss @hairartiststephanie You sound like a wonderful teacher @rodriguj1978
hairartiststephanie : @rodriguj1978 My mom was a public school teacher for 30 yrs. I believe that many teachers have great intentions and love children. We have had some nightmare experiences with our local school. I do not think teachers as a whole are disconnected to loving on their students. Good job for loving them through the hard times and messy life. 😺 keep it real!

Fifteen minutes north of the iconic Vegas Strip is the economically depressed downtown Las Vegas, a much-forgotten part of town. It's also an area of tremendous change in recent years, since it's the heart of tech billionaire Tony Hsieh's ambitious Downtown Project — an effort that's part urban revitalization, part social experiment. Three years in, it's not going as quickly as he expected. The link to the full story is in our profile. (Credit: @isaacbrekken for NPR) #lasvegas #zappos #tech

When Jasmine Uqdah aged out of the foster care system in 2008, she didn't have a job, a checking account or a car. She did have a college acceptance letter — but no money to pay for schooling. Over the last few years, there's been a nationwide push to get more former foster youth to college. The link to Jasmine's full story is in our profile.
