President Donald Trump looked well-positioned to win a second term, and perhaps pull enough incumbent Republicans along with him to hold the party's majority in the Senate.

How do you spell 'inequality' at the Bee?

In a year when the International Olympic Committee postponed the Summer Games in Tokyo and when March Madness and nearly every other major sporting event has been canceled, it is no surprise that this week's widely anticipated National Spelling Bee would be called off. Initially deferred, students and parents were understandably devastated when contest officials announced on April 21 that the competition would not be held for the first time since World War II. In lieu of tuning into ESPN Thursday for the primetime finals, the cancellation of the Scripps National Spelling Bee offers a offers a much-needed opportunity to rethink childhood priorities. If the goal of the National Spelling Bee is, as their website states, to "help students discover a knack for spelling and a passion for competition," this year's canceled competition is an ideal moment to figure out a way it can better serve all interested kids.
