Unpacking Diversity in Our Lives and Schools

I had the pleasure to interview Dr. Derrick Gay for an article I wrote for Montessori Life magazine. Here is the link to "Unpacking 'Diversity' in Our Lives and Schools." Give it a read. I especially appreciated his eloquence on the definitions of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), social justice, and cultural competency.

Thank you, Derrick.

Generational Child Care Differences

Yesterday's NYTimes article "The New 30-Something" by Hannah Seligson gives excellent perspective on generational (Boomers, GenXers, Millennials and iGens) differences on child rearing.

A quote from the article: 
“More than half (53 percent) of Americans ages 21 to 37 have received some form of financial assistance from a parent, guardian or family member since turning 21, according to a 2018 report by Country Financial, a financial services firm in Bloomington, Ill. This may include paying bills for a cellphone (41 percent), groceries and gas (32 percent), rent (40 percent) or health insurance (32 percent).”

Here is my True Tales Live 10-minute story about generational child care differences I told a week ago. I hope it gives you a chuckle.
