Fixing California schools would cost billions, reports say

first_imgThey review everything from inequalities in school funding to whether teachers unions contribute to the prevalence of underqualified teachers in poor and minority schools. Others repeat common complaints from educators and school districts: that the state has too many categorical programs that tie up money; that teachers need targeted professional development to deal with a growing number of English learners; and that California lags other states in its collection of student-specific data. California already spends nearly half its annual budget on education, a total of $66 billion in the current fiscal year, or about $11,000 per student in kindergarten through 12th grade. Still, one estimate in the documents obtained by the AP says California might need to spend as much as $1.5 trillion a year to meet its performance goals, an amount equal to about half the annual federal budget. But sources familiar with the studies, who did not want to be named because they were not authorized to release the information, say the researchers will dismiss that figure as statistically invalid. Many education advocates worried that including outrageous information such as the $1.5 trillion figure will trivialize the reform effort. They say it could scare away policymakers who otherwise might be open to making substantive reforms, leaving the studies to collect dust along with those from Schwarzenegger’s advisory panels on prisons and government efficiency. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The package of studies is intended to kick-start a discussion of major reforms to California’s public schools but appears to make no concrete recommendations. Instead, the material will be turned over to the committee, which is expected to issue reform suggestions later this year. The cost figures come from panels of educators who estimated how much it would take to bring all California schools up to a score of 800 on the state’s Academic Performance Index, the state’s system of gauging student proficiency in reading and math. Two estimates, both based on interviews with educators, estimate the cost of meeting the state’s achievement goals at an additional $23 billion to $32 billion a year. It is not clear, however, whether that money would bring all students up to the federal goal of having all students proficient in reading and math by 2014. The qualifications of the educators also were not specified. Despite the $3 million investment by groups such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the studies appear to draw no clear new conclusions about the best way to reform the system. Several are intended to be informative – for example, to help the 20-member education committee understand California’s complicated education financing system, which is unique in the nation. SACRAMENTO – A major overhaul of California’s schools will cost tens of billions of dollars more per year, but money alone won’t fix the many problems facing the nation’s largest public education system, according to a series of landmark studies to be released today. A summary of the findings and some of the studies’ supporting material was obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press. The documents include several estimates of how much money it would take to boost student performance so all California schools meet the Department of Education’s goal. The studies are part of a package requested by political leaders to inform the Governor’s Committee on Education Excellence. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger named the bipartisan panel in 2005 to investigate the myriad challenges facing California’s public school system. They are contained in a 1,700-page report, coordinated by Stanford University, that is scheduled to be released during separate events today and Thursday. last_img read more

African players in Europe: Salah at the double for Liverpool

first_imgFormer Arsenal forward Gervinho grabbed the winner to condemn new Napoli boss Gennaro Gattuso to defeat, while current Gunners striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was kept quiet in a chastening loss to Manchester City.ENGLANDMOHAMED SALAH (Liverpool)The Egypt forward produced two superb goals to give the Reds a 2-0 win against Watford at Anfield.With bottom of the table Watford proving tougher than expected opposition, Salah broke the deadlock in the 38th minute when he raced clear to curl a fine finish in the far corner.He added the killer second with an audacious flicked effort from close range in the last minute as leaders Liverpool moved 10 points clear of second-placed Leicester.Salah has now scored 84 goals in 126 appearances in all competitions for Liverpool.He has scored eight Premier League goals against Watford, more than he has managed against any other team in the top five European leagues.ALEX IWOBI (Everton)The Nigeria winger remains without a goal since September after being denied a late winner in the 1-1 draw at Manchester United. Everton’s first-half opener via a Victor Lindelof own goal had been cancelled out by Mason Greenwood’s second-half equaliser when Iwobi had his chance to become an Everton hero.There were just moments left to play when the former Arsenal star unleashed a superb strike that brought a fine save from David de Gea. Iwobi has scored just twice since his close-season move from Arsenal.PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG (Arsenal)Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (L) was barely given a sniff of goal as Arsenal were well beaten by Manchester City © IKIMAGES/AFP / Ian KINGTONThe Gabon striker drew a blank as Arsenal were completely outclassed in a dismal 3-0 defeat against Manchester City.Aubameyang was largely anonymous and the Gunners were three goals down by half-time as champions City ran riot at the Emirates Stadium.Although the 30-year-old has 13 goals this season, he has cooled off considerably since his red-hot start to the season with just five goals in his last 13 appearances.With Aubameyang not at his best, Arsenal’s struggles show no signs of ending and they now sit seven points adrift of the top four.ITALYGERVINHO (Parma)/KALIDOU KOULIBALY (Napoli)Ivorian Gervinho, 32, struck the winner in the third minute of injury time for a 2-1 success which spoiled Napoli coach Gennaro Gattuso’s debut game.It was the fourth league goal this season for the former Arsenal, Roma and Hebei China Fortune player.Napoli’s Senegalese defender Kalidou Koulibaly had a nightmare game, losing control of the ball after four minutes to allow seventh-placed Parma to score.Koulibaly went off with a thigh injury just after, later tweeting: “I’m sorry. For the goal conceded, for the defeat and for the injury.”MUSA BARROW (Atalanta)Gambian forward Barrow, 21, came off the bench and provided the cross which pulled a goal back for Atalanta in a 2-1 defeat to Bologna just days after the Champions League newcomers sealed their place in the competition’s last 16. The Bergamo side are sixth in the league.SPAINKARL TOKO EKAMBI (Villarreal)Villarreal forward Karl Toko Ekambi (C) celebrates his winning goal against Sevilla © AFP / JORGE GUERREROThe Cameroon forward scored the winner in a surprise 2-1 victory for Villarreal away at high-flying Sevilla in La Liga.Toko Ekambi sidefooted home for his sixth goal of the season after excellent work by Manu Trigueros to control in the box and tee up his team-mate.Victory dents Sevilla’s hopes of joining the title race and means Villarreal sit 13th in the table, now eight points clear of the bottom three.GERMANYACHRAF HAKIMI (Borussia Dortmund)The Moroccan failed to score or assist in Dortmund’s big 4-0 over Mainz, however it would be hard to argue it was his fault.Two Hakimi pinpoint crosses put goals on a platter for Nico Schulz and Jadon Sancho in either half, however poor finishing robbed the Real Madrid loanee of his sixth and seventh assists of the season.AMINE HARIT (Schalke)Amine Harit (L) linked up with Benito Raman as Schalke won at home to Eintracht Frankfurt © AFP / INA FASSBENDERSchalke’s attacking midfielder was at the centre of everything during the Royal Blues’ win over Eintracht Frankfurt, causing constant problems for the visitors’ defence.Not only did he provide the assist for Benito Raman’s opener, but the Morocco international created the three-on-one break which led to the goal.FRANCEOPA NGUETTE (Metz)Newly-promoted Metz are struggling against being relegated straight back to Ligue 2 but they picked up a hugely valuable point at home to Marseille thanks to Senegalese forward Nguette, who scored just his second goal of the season in a 1-1 draw when he steered home Fabien Centonze’s fizzing cross to give his team a surprise lead.The 25-year-old also won a penalty early in the second half that would have likely sealed a massive win, but Yohann Pele did brilliantly to push out Habib Diallo’s spot-kick, allowing Nemanja Radonjic to level with 20 minutes remaining.0Shares0000(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah (L) has scored four goals in his past three games © AFP / Paul ELLISPARIS, France, Dec 16 – Mohamed Salah pushed Liverpool 10 points clear in the Premier League with both goals in a victory over bottom side Watford.The Egyptian has struck in back-to-back league games for the first time this season, and also helped the Reds progress in Europe in midweek.last_img read more

Wow! Four-time title winner says: ‘I could manage Liverpool and Spurs’

first_imgAjax manager Frank de Boer admits it would be hard to turn down Liverpool and Tottenham if either of the Premier League pair come calling again.The former Holland defender has been in the running for both jobs in recent years, after winning four Eredivisie titles during his time with the Dutch side.De Boer was linked with the Anfield top job before Brendan Rodgers was appointed, and was approached about the Spurs gig, which was eventually handed to Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino last summer.And, speaking in an exclusive interview with Four Four Two, the 44-year-old claims is interested in moving to England in the near future.“I believe you have to take risks and have the conviction that you’ll succeed,” he said. “Together with Mauricio Pochettino I was the biggest candidate, and if they had chosen me, I would’ve done it [the Tottenham job].“If I get an offer from a club in the future I will consider the possibility and then follow my feeling.“I look at whether it’s a club where I think I can present myself well and where I’ll be able to act in the way I like.“If I think that’s not the case, then I won’t do it. Before, there was potential interest from Monaco as well, but I told my agent that it wasn’t something I was looking for at that moment.“Liverpool and Spurs are clubs I could manage. Liverpool are a good example – like the way they play now and how they finished last year.“They have adapted a different football philosophy. Before it was the old English kick-and-rush; now you see Martin Skrtel playing a passing game. You would never have seen that two or three years ago.“I noticed that as well; that you could adopt that game with that kind of player. They did that last season, and from nowhere they finished second. That’s the best there is.”When asked why he rejected the chance to talk to Liverpool, following Kenny Dalglish’s departure, the 1995 Champions League winner added: “It wasn’t a difficult decision.“I said straight away: “I don’t even have to think about it”. At the time, I felt I wasn’t ready for a move abroad. I had just started at Ajax, and I was not finished here at all.“Liverpool approached me in the same way Tottenham Hotspur did this year, wanting to hold exploratory talks first. I think I was one of the two or three candidates for the Liverpool job. Frank de Boer 1last_img read more

JUDGE TELLS ACCUSED TO GO HOME AND GOOGLE THE WORD ‘APOLOGISE’

first_imgA Judge has told a man to go home and Google the word ‘apologise’ if he wanted to stay out of jail.Judge Conal Gibbons told defendant John Paul Boyle that he needed to apologise to a Garda whom he had abused while being drunk and disorderly.Letterkenny District Court was told today that Boyle had become abusive in a taxi while on a night out. When Gardai had asked him if he had any illegal substances Boyle, 27, replied he had a “load of heroin.”He then abused Gardai calling them a litany of names before being arrested.Boyle, of Ard Crone, Dungloe, was charged with being abusive to Gardai and being drunk and disorderly.Judge Gibbons asked Boyle what he was going to do about his drinking and his behaviour?Boyle said he was an idiot when he was drunk and was trying to do something about it.“I want you to look up a word on Google and the word is ‘apologise’. I will not tolerate anyone challenging Gardai.“I expect every citizen of the State to co-operate with Gardai – our duty is to co-operate. That’s all we’re asking. We’re not asking people to go down on bended knee,” he said.Judge Gibbons said Gardai had been killed on duty and they didn’t deserve anyone to speak to them in the disgraceful manner in which Boyle had.Boyle’s girlfriend addressed the court and said she was trying to keep him on the straight and narrow.“You are lucky you have such a good young woman trying to look after you and you should be grateful for that,” said the Judge.He fined Boyle €500 but added “If I had it my way, I would fine you €5,000 but I can’t.”JUDGE TELLS ACCUSED TO GO HOME AND GOOGLE THE WORD ‘APOLOGISE’ was last modified: April 18th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:dungloeJOhn Paul BOyleJudge Conal Gibbonslast_img read more

SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP RELEGATION PLAY-OFF MATCHES THIS WEEEKEND

first_imgTheir are some massive games in the Senior championship down for decision this weekend as Dungloe, Cloughaneely, Bundoran and Glenfin battle it out for the right to play Senior championship football in 2014. The four sides finished bottom of their respective groups and now have to navigate their way through a relegation series in order to avoid the drop down to Intermediate championship football.Dungloe face Cloughaneely on Sunday in the Banks and will be hoping to keep their proud tradition of being a Senior club intact when they face the men from Falcaragh. Cloughaneely suffered big defeats in all their group games, while Dungloe drew with Termon in their group before narrowly losing to both Killybegs and Gaoth Dobhair.Dungloe are expected to win this match and will look to current county player Adrian Hanlon and former All-star winner Adrian Sweeney to secure championship football for the Rosses outfit.In the other relegation play-off Glenfin face Bundoran in what should be a very close encounter.Glenfin will look to current star Frank McGlynn to lead by example while Bundoran will be hoping they can recapture the form that seen them hold St.Michaels in an earlier championship match this season. A late Christy Toye point denied the Bundoran men a famous win.It won’t be the end of the road for whatever side loses in both games, as the two losers from these matches will play each other and will be given one final chance to secure their club Senior championship football for next season.  SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP RELEGATION PLAY-OFF MATCHES THIS WEEEKEND was last modified: August 8th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bundoranCloughaneelyDonegal Senior ChampionshipdungloeglenfinRelegation play-offslast_img read more

On eve of league openers, a report

first_imgWe’ve reached the halfway point of the high school football season, so here’s a midseason report as Valencia (4-1), Hart (4-1), Canyon (4-1) and Saugus (2-3) prepare for Foothill League openers Friday: BEST OF THE BEST The big news is Valencia’s Michael Herrick’s pursuit of former Newbury Park quarterback Keith Smith’s state career-passing record of 9,971 yards, set from 1991 to 1993. Herrick has passed for 1,580 yards this season – including four 300-yard performances in five starts – to push his career total to 8,812. Herrick needs 1,159 to catch Smith and 1,188 to crack 10,000. If Herrick stays healthy, he ought to do so easily. Assuming defending section finalist Valencia, ranked No. 2 in the Southern Section Div. II rankings, qualifies for the playoffs – a gimme, considering the team needs to finish just fourth among six teams – Herrick needs to average just 193.2 yards per game to catch Smith. Herrick is averaging 316 this season and 284.3 in his 31-game career. Valencia’s Shane Vereen and Canyon’s J.J. DiLuigi, junior running backs, also are enjoying terrific seasons. Vereen has rushed for 618 yards (10.0 avg.), caught 26 passes for 439 yards and scored 13 touchdowns. DiLuigi has rushed for 646 yards (6.4 avg.), caught seven passes for 159 yards and scored 17 touchdowns. They also are the league’s most dangerous kick returners. BIGGEST SURPRISES Frankly, things have gone pretty much as expected. Hart, Valencia and Canyon are strong, as usual, and nearly everyone predicted Saugus would romp past its first two, lightweight opponents, then lose to Chino, Notre Dame and St. Francis – which is what happened. Valencia sophomore Nick Hale, a fast multipurpose player, has been a pleasant surprise. He probably would start at running back for 90 percent of the teams in Div. II but is on the same team as Shane Vereen. So Hale has carried just four times – for 85 yards and a touchdown – and recently moved to receiver, catching 10 passes for 194 yards. Teammate Rickie Crouch, a transfer from Crenshaw of Los Angeles, has fit in nicely as a starting safety and special-teams standout. Canyon quarterback Austin Civita, a senior starting for the first time, has passed for 838 yards (55 pct.) and five touchdowns – not bad considering Canyon is without top receiver Richie Wirthlin (broken hand). THE BAD NEWS Most disappointing has been the injury-plagued half-season of Hart’s star quarterback, Tyler Lyon, who’s missed nearly three full games because of a separated shoulder and then a concussion. After passing for more than 3,100 yards as a junior, then leading Hart to a series of large-scale passing-tournament championships during the summer, Lyon has been limited to 412 yards (56.3 pct.) and three touchdowns. After sitting out Friday’s game because of the concussion, Lyon is expected to be ready for Friday night’s league opener against Saugus at College of the Canyons. More was expected of Hart sophomore running back Delano Howell, who enjoyed a huge JV season last year and is the brother of former Hart standouts Dan (Washington) and Keith (Harvard) Howell. Howell has shown flashes of potential but has just 197 yards on 52 carries, an average of 3.8 yards per attempt, and he’s caught just five passes – small numbers compared to past Hart running backs’ totals. Seniorless, first-year program Golden Valley (0-5), playing a freelance schedule before joining the Foothill League next season, has struggled. The Grizzlies have lost by an average of 41.5 points, and their injury-depleted roster has dwindled to about 20 players, many with no previous football experience.

There aren’t as many top-flight linemen or defensive standouts as usual. It’s possible that not a single Foothill lineman nor defensive player will receive an NCAA Division I scholarship, not a common occurrence. Canyon’s Nick Madia (junior) and Aaron Gross, Saugus’ Ramsen Golposhin (junior), Hart’s Brandon Takata and Valencia’s Chris Vandepas are among the top offensive linemen. Defensively, the best include Hart linebacker Griffin Cannon and defensive lineman Wilford Aka, Valencia defensive back Chris Koshak and linebackers Travis Quesada and Travis Marziani, and Saugus linebackers Ryan and Justin McKillop and defensive back Justin Monson. Hart’s Paul Weinstein (two field goals, 39.1 punting average) and Valencia’s Ricky Drake (four field goals) are the top kickers. last_img read more

Jury rehears part of Blake’s testimony

first_imgBURBANK – The jury deliberating in a wrongful-death lawsuit against “Baretta” star Robert Blake spent several hours Monday rehearing some of Blake’s trial testimony, then retired for the night without reaching a verdict on whether he is liable for the death of his wife, Bonny Lee Bakley. The nine-man, three-woman jury, which heard two months of testimony, spent its first full day in deliberations since receiving the case Friday. Jurors asked to have some of Blake’s eight days of testimony read to them by a court stenographer. They also asked to examine a box of clothing, some of it taken from Blake’s home after his wife was slain. Blake, 72, was acquitted of murder in March after a criminal trial, but the lawsuit brought on behalf of Bakley’s four children seeks to hold him civilly responsible and to win monetary damages. A verdict in the civil case would require agreement by nine of the 12 jurors, rather than a unanimous decision.

On May 4, 2001, Bakley was found fatally shot in Blake’s car parked on a Studio City street near Vitello’s restaurant, where the couple had dined. Blake said he left his wife in the car outside while he returned to the eatery to retrieve a gun he left on the seat of their booth. When he came back to the car, he said, Bakley had been shot. Much of the evidence in the civil trial was a replay of the criminal case except for Blake’s testimony, which was new.
