We all know that schools play a central and crucial role in the lives of children. But President Donald Trump, without clear plans to contain the coronavirus in communities where it is currently surging, has threatened to defund schools that don't open up in the fall. This move would be detrimental to children, their parents and teachers, adding more fear and confusion during an already chaotic time. (As CNN's Tami Luhby writes, the President can't unilaterally cut current federal support of schools, but "could try to restrict some recent pandemic relief funding or refuse to sign future education grants and bailouts, and any reductions in federal funding would hit schools hard.")
As coronavirus cases surge across the US and states throttle back on economic reopenings, experts and advocacy groups are warning that low-income families could face utility shutoffs as moratoriums on disconnections lift -- with Black families especially at risk.

I had my own "wonder years" -- and I bet most of you did, too. The emotional connections triggered by ABC's "The Wonder Years" throughout its five-year run (1988-93) were so deeply familiar to those of us who grew up in the 1960s, or even earlier, that it didn't seem to matter that it focused on a White middle-class family on Long Island when Lyndon Johnson's presidency gave way to Richard Nixon's -- even if that setting felt out of step with our lived experience in real life.
Public health professionals around the world have lauded Taiwan's response to the coronavirus pandemic. Along with nearby countries such as South Korea and Singapore, Taiwan has employed policy responses to Covid-19 that are worthy of emulation around the world.

It's a sad day for Slurpee lovers everywhere.
Coronavirus is winning the battle in El Centro, California. It's in almost every patient in the hospital. Tents are being put up to handle even more cases. It's on the streets, forcing rescuers to put on protective suits and cumbersome masks before they approach people needing help. And it's not stopping. Even as nearby and faraway facilities take patients to try to ease the load, more and more sick people keep coming. And so do the deaths. The workers are exhausted. The virus is not.
Based on the true story of Deborah Feldman, a Jewish woman who left the Satmar community in Williamsburg, Brooklyn in search of a new life, the hit Netflix series "Unorthodox" has brought Hasidic culture -- and its female dress codes -- into mainstream focus.

When the disgraced health entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes was indicted on fraud charges for her lab-testing company Theranos last year, much of the media discussion rested not on her alleged corporate recklessness and staggering abuses of trust, but on her sartorial choices: black jackets, black slacks, and -- most importantly -- black turtlenecks.

The idea is to bring attention to these facilities, which may not be familiar to many Americans.
When photographer William Eggleston arrived in Manhattan in 1967, he brought a suitcase filled with color slides and prints taken around the Mississippi Delta.

Representation in Hollywood isn't just about race.
Andy Samberg becomes the latest "Saturday Night Live" alum to explore movie stardom with "Palm Springs," a romantic comedy co-starring Cristin Milioti.

Besides transforming Broadway and delivering maybe the most memorable history lesson ever, "Hamilton" also broke ground by being intentional about diversity in its casting.
