Lessons from a big, flawed education story
In a new essay for The Atlantic , staff writer George Packer chronicles his family’s experience navigating the mammoth New York City public school system—the country’s largest, and one that is both starkly segregated and notoriously hard to parse.

Following talks, Netanyahu was unable to form a coalition government. Rather than give rivals a go, he triggered fresh elections, which take place today—as Haaretz , an Israeli daily, puts it, dryly, it’s an election “so nice they held it twice.” In a last-minute appeal, Netanyahu reminded supporters that voting is more...
