Editorial: Women Still Suffer at the Hands of Men - in Iran and Elsewhere
The story of this year’s Women’s History Month will end with a grim sentence: 33 years and 148 lashes. The Iranian lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh received the new prison term after reportedly having been found guilty of “colluding against the system, propaganda against the system ... disrupting public order” and several other counts – and the sentence of corporal punishment for appearing in court without the hijab, Islamic head covering “and other offenses.”

Room for a View: Short Essay on Growth
I find a certain peace in accepting that awareness, as well as an affirmation of my humanness. The image of a well-weathered tree with all its rings of growing fits. The core is solid and intact while each ring, as the tree grows, adds its own history to what is past. Each offers vivid evidence of a life force, which I prefer to label “life reach” since that is how we claim our growing.

More Room: The Second-Worst Sin

Room for A View: Cubs to the Rescue
It has not been a good stretch for professional sports in Chicagoland. The Bears after a strong season let fans down by just missing, literally, the playoffs. The Blackhawks are still struggling to get out of a sinkhole of a start. The Bulls? Rebuilding, trying to find the chemistry to contend, maybe next season.

Guest Essay: Achievement and School Board Elections - By the Numbers
Additionally, some ETHS School Board members have stated both that ETHS is responsible for educating every student that walks through its doors and also, when faced with unfavorable achievement data, that broader non-school factors make it difficult to impact achievement. At a February meeting those same Board members acknowledged that the Board has not discussed these broader factors in depth.  Will the candidates commit to conducting an in-depth analysis of non-school variables that impact kindergarten-readiness and thus the racial achievement gap?
