Editor’s Note

This article is paid for by Kevin Pearson, candidate for the Louisiana Public Service Commission.

Throughout his life, Kevin Pearson has been active in his community. He was president of the Slidell Rotary Club and a board member of the East St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce, Florida Parishes Juvenile Detention Center and Leadership Northshore. But he had never truly considered politics until 2007.

That year, Pearson’s daughter was a high school senior who had her eye on attending LSU. Pearson was proud, but he knew Louisiana ranked at the bottom of most national lists that ranked education, the economy and quality of life.

“I just kept thinking that my daughter was going to go to LSU, get a degree and then move to Texas to get a job,” Pearson recalled. “We were seeing it time and time again. We provide a good education, then that person moves to

Education professor elected to Pontifical Academy of Sciences

Maryanne Wolf, distinguished professor of education and director of the UCLA Center for Dyslexia, Diverse Learners and Social Justice, has been elected a permanent member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, a body of 80 scientists from around the world.

With this appointment, the Vatican recognizes Wolf’s work in applying science to education, in tandem with Pope Francis’ expressed goal of utilizing science to improve the lives of the world’s impoverished populations, particularly children. Wolf is one of a very few women who are members of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, and one of only several academicians directly applying neuroscience to global issues in education.

Prior to arriving at UCLA, Wolf was the John DiBiaggio Professor of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University, and the director of the Center for Reading and Language Development in the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development. She is affiliated with the

Chris Eustace, a retired teacher, is running again to become chairman of the Lester B. Pearson School Board.


 

Two former teachers are vying to become the next chair of the Lester B. Pearson School Board.

But the comparisons end there for Judy Kelley and Chris Eustace, the candidates in the Nov. 1 school board election.

While Kelley is a strong proponent of the current school board structure, Eustace favours the Coalition Avenir Québec’s plan, under Bill 40, to scrap school boards and replace them with service centres.

Eustace, who taught at Pierrefonds Comprehensive High School for 34 years, also ran for the chair position in 2014 but lost to incumbent Suanne Stein Day , who later resigned under a

Abandoned City Construction Project Bars Off Brooklyn Schoolyard

PROSPECT HEIGHTS, BROOKLYN — Feeling anxious about sending her third-grader back to class amid a pandemic, Martha Pearson got a bit of relief in August when New York City gave the go-ahead for schools to hold class outside.

There was just one problem — half the outdoor space at her daughter’s school had been turned into a fenced-off construction site.

“Those announcements were kind of on the heels of each other, like, ‘You can do outdoor schooling, but there’s this,'” Pearson said, recalling an August note from P.S. 9’s principal about the schoolyard construction. “So, how is our outdoor space going to work?”

The anxiety only got worse when Pearson and other parents were told that a massive hole dug for the project — started to fix stormwater issues — wouldn’t be going anywhere anytime soon.

Despite only starting the work in August, the city had paused nearly all non-emergency
