CNN's Home and Away Remembers the Fallen

EVERY DAY ON THE KYRA SHOW WE HONOR A U.S. SERVICE MEMBER WHO MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE IN IRAQ OR AFGHANISTAN. OUR TRIBUTE SEGMENT IS CALLED “HOME AND AWAY,” AND IT’S A PROJECT WE’RE WORKING ON WITH CNN.COM. OUR GOAL IS TO TELL THE STORY OF EACH MAN AND WOMAN KILLED IN THE WARS. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP TO LIFT UP THAT FAMILY MEMBER, FIANCE, COLLEGE BUDDY, OR COMRADE. WE NEED YOUR STORIES, YOUR PICTURES AND YOUR HOME VIDEOS. AND IT’S REALLY EASY TO SUBMIT THE MEMORIES.  CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW TO FIND OUT HOW!

How Do We Fix Our Schools? Parents and Homework...

It’s a hot topic among today’s parents. When parents get together you often hear them say…”When I was a kid, my parents didn’t have to help me with my homework.” Or you hear, “Wow, kids these days have so much more homework and it sure is a lot more complicated then I remember.” It definitely is a fact that children are coming home with more homework and with curriculum changes it does seem to be harder than many remember.

Today watch as CNN Education Contributor Steve Perry makes what we call a house call. Dr. Perry, who is currently a high school principal, will be helping families with an education makeover in their homes. He will be helping two families figure out how to improve the homework habits of their children and address some other very common challenges families face all over the country.

We want to hear your thoughts on parents and homework. Email us your comments and we will read some of your comments on CNN Newsroom at 10am.
