KPCC's Early Childhood Correspondent Deepa Fernandes visited Denmark and Norway recently and talked to parents and educators about their countries' free and subsidized child care.

Support for universal preschool is spreading around the country, but relatively few places have set up systems where all kids from infants to 5-year-olds can attend child care. That's not the case in Scandinavian countries like Norway and Denmark where early child care for all has been around for decades and is taken for granted by taxpayers.

The National Education Association has launched an attack on the practice of homeschooling, and one leading education expert is not taking it lying down.

"The National Education Association's radical attacks on constitutionally protected liberties and homeschooling families in particular are outrageous and should be vehemently denounced by every real educator and every real American," internationalist journalist and educator Alex Newman declared. The NEA's 2014-2015 resolution on homeschooling begins like this: "The National Education Association believes that home schooling programs based on parental choice cannot provide the student with a comprehensive education experience." Freelance writer Patrice Lewis, who homeschools her children, seethed at that line.

Nicholas Winton, a humanitarian who almost single-handedly saved more than 650 Jewish children from the Holocaust, earning himself the label "Britain's Schindler," has died. He was 106.

Son-in-law Stephen Watson said Winton died on Wednesday. The Rotary Club of Maidenhead, of which Winton was a former president, said his daughter Barbara and two grandchildren were at his side. Winton arranged trains to carry children from Nazi-occupied Prague to Britain, battling bureaucracy at both ends and saving them from almost certain death - and then kept quiet about his exploits for a half-century.

Vaccination = generation-to-generation genetic changes Therefore, California is mandating genetic changes

Governor Jerry Brown just signed SB277 into law in California. No more religious or philosophical exemption from vaccination. Now only a medical doctor's note stating a person should not be vaccinated will provide an exemption-and you can be sure doctors who sign a number of these notes will be tracked, scrutinized, harassed, and attacked by the State.

California is on the verge of requiring more children to get vaccinations, even if parents disagree.

The state's assembly passed a bill this week that allowed medical exemptions but did not allow for exemptions based on personal beliefs. So, put the numbers in perspective. How many kids in the California school system aren't vaccinated?

Little boys are wonderful, but they will not stay little forever. When they are grown they will be men - men with life responsibilities, wives, and families. What tools do our little boys need to be properly equipped to face manhood?

As the parents of these little boys, we must be actively working to provide them with the tools they need to face life as a man. As the husbands and fathers in our society become less and less able to handle the pressures of life in a Godly and responsible way, our families, our churches, and our country begins to crumble from the inside out. Let's raise up a generation of real men who will stand for God, take responsibility for their families, and and do right at all costs!

After an outcry over one family's "free-range" parenting case, Maryland officials on Friday clarified the state's policy on how authorities handle cases of children walking or playing alone outdoors...

Danielle Meitiv said she welcomed the clarification, saying it highlights an issue of growing importance even though she still thinks it doesn't go far enough.

My high school colors were green and white. At graduation the boys wore green robes and the girls wore white. No one considered the girls inferior because of the color of their robes.

Today, we live in different times. My alma mater, Walter Johnson High School in Montgomery County, Md., is one of several schools to have decided that their commencement ceremony this year will feature single-color robes to respect transgender students and those who do not identify as either male or female. In the age of Caitlyn Jenner, any effort to classify the sexes is becoming increasingly difficult, if not downright impossible.

I was raised in a family of girls, so the world of boys is an ongoing mystery to me. I always thought I would have all girls since my mom also cam from a family of girls.

I have found there is something so special about boys, however, and the strings of my heart somehow attach to my boys in a different way than they do to my girls. Although boys can seem so stoic, unconcerned, and unaffected by things, their hearts are just as vulnerable as their girl counterparts who make their feelings, worries, and struggles known much more easily for the most part. Girls show you their hand while boys make great poker players by hiding their cards a bit more, which means they are also hiding what's on their hearts, too.
