I was deeply moved by Tayari Jones's story of a married couple whose lives get torn apart by an incident of injustice. The book is so well-written that you’ll find yourself sucked into it despite the heavy subject matter.

One of the things I've enjoyed most as a father is watching my children get curious about a topic and then seeing how their knowledge deepens and grows. In her wonderful new book, Diane Tavenner offers advice about how parents can support their child’s independent growth.

An amazing guidebook for raising and educating our kids

At Gestamp, an auto parts maker in Chattanooga, Tennessee, I saw how the factory is putting high school students on a path to opportunity.
