The European Union will push developed countries to commit more finance to help poorer nations cut emissions and adapt to climate change impacts at the COP26 summit, the European Commission said on Thursday. The EU will "urge developed countries to increase their climate finance to meet the $100 billion target," the Commission said in a statement, adding that the EU and its 27 member countries already contribute more than $25 billion per year.

Communities across the United States are reconsidering their approach to gifted and talented programs in schools as vocal parents blame such elite programs for worsening racial segregation and inequities in the country’s education system.
