Herrera Beutler sponsored bill targets chronic school absenteeism

first_imgU.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler is championing legislation she hopes will result in students spending more time in the classroom by giving local schools flexibility to tackle chronic absenteeism.One of the key components of the measure would give school districts the ability to tap into funds to create programs to reduce absenteeism by creating school-based mentoring programs. Schools could also use the Title IV-A block grants to collect data to better identify what’s causing students to miss school and monitor if any progress is being made. Rather than simply suspending students, which clearly results in less classroom time, it would give districts the ability to partner with local health, transportation and social service providers to create a more compassionate approach to combating absenteeism.“Empowering students with quality education is so important to their success, and we should identify and eliminate obstacles to achieving that goal,” the Camas Republican said in a statement. “Unfortunately, Washington state has the most public school districts that face chronic absenteeism in the U.S. I’m pleased to help offer this solution that empowers educators at the local level with tools and support to address factors that are leading to kids in Southwest Washington missing school.”In New York, a local task force created solutions focused on absent students and watched as they became 31 percent less likely to be chronically absent, according to information from Herrera Beutler’s office.Washington state has the second-worst chronic absenteeism rate in the nation behind the District of Columbia, according to the Office of Public Instruction numbers last updated in June 2016. Seven local Southwest Washington school districts — Vancouver, Washougal, Hockinson, Ridgefield, Evergreen, Battle Ground and Woodland — had rates greater than the national average of 13.1 percent.last_img read more

The day Lionel Messi cried like a child for Argentina

first_imgA new heartbreaking story about another one of Lionel Messi’s defeats has been revealed by former Argentina fitness coach Elvio Paolorosso.We all know about the demons that Lionel Messi has always struggled with when he plays for Argentina, the biggest stain of his career has been to never lift a single trophy with the major National Team from his country. We all remember the look of his face back in 2014 when he lost the final against Germany in the World Cup played in Brazil, there also were another two consecutive defeats against Chile in two separate Copa America tournaments in 2015 and 2016. There are accounts of the first Copa America he lost in which many of the Chile players were trying to console Messi by reminding him that he was still the best player in the world, but the Barcelona star keeps reminding us through many actions and public statements that he doesn’t care about being the best player in the world and all he wants is to lift a trophy for his beloved Argentina. To this day it’s still uncertain if he will be able to do it, a World Cup certainly looks a lot more difficult now because he will over 34 when the next one is played in Qatar 2022. So Messi’s best chance at winning a title is in the next Copa America to be held in Brazil on 2019.MOMENTO DURÍSIMO. El desgarrador relato sobre cómo vivió Lionel Messi la final perdida de Argentina ante Chile en la Copa América 2016: https://t.co/hAh4V3lp6r pic.twitter.com/OjF4VLJ4FV— Invictos (@InvictosSomos) September 14, 2018But many of the fans and even journalists still love going after Messi asking him to resign to the National Team, they consider he doesn’t have the character to even be considered as an Argentinean and this has hurt Lio very much throughout his career. After every single defeat for his country, the very first reaction from the press of that country is to call him ‘Pechofrío’ (feckless) because they don’t even think he cares for his national team as much as they do. After every single defeat also come the inevitable comparisons with Diego Maradona, Messi is a player who has always lived under the large shadow Diego casts with his football as a player and his successful career for Argentina. All we need to do in order to understand how wrong people are to criticize him over this, is to see his face after every single defeat with his national team and watch him suffer just as much if not more than every Argentinean when the Albiceleste loses a final. But there is an anecdote from a person who lived those defeats from the inside, that gives you a better idea of how much Lionel has suffered and why he needs to take a break right after a new heartbreak in order to return stronger for the next challenge. Because we know that Messi won’t give up, he wants a trophy with Argentina.¡Fuerte revelación sobre #Messi!

Messi played a good match in that final but he failed to score and the very same situation as the previous final presented itself, the match ended with a goalless draw and it was defined from the spot. Messi’s side lost from the spot for the second consecutive year and the Barcelona star could not believe it. Fitness coach Elvio Paolorosso spoke recently with radio show Joga Bonito and shared a very private story about Messi back in Argentina when they lost that final: “The dressing room after the Copa America was very painful, but the worst was to come. At two in the morning, more or less, I went to the storeroom and found Leo completely alone, crying like a kid who had lost his mother. He was distraught and nobody could console him. I gave him a hug and we had a little whine together. I had Messi with Barcelona and Argentina, and all I have for him are words of gratitude. He always cooperated well and even noticed if the pitch was hard or soft.”Fantino: “Messi en Argentina simboliza fracaso” pic.twitter.com/FaLOqgBjXl— Messista ♡ (@Jjenny_e10) September 12, 2018Do you think Messi will ever win a title for Argentina before he retires?

Emery Poor finishing cost Arsenal against Spurs

first_imgArsenal manager Unai Emery was left to rue his side’s poor finishing after losing 2-0 to North London rivals Tottenham in the quarter-finals of the Carabao CupAfter going 22 matches unbeaten, Arsenal fell to their second defeat in the space of four days following goals from Son Heung-min and Dele Alli that secured Spurs victory at the Emirates Stadium.Although the Gunners had chances in the second half to score but only for Alexandre Lacazette to hit the post, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s cross ended up on the top of the crossbar.“I think we worked like we wanted to, like we’d prepared for this match,” said Emery on Arsenal.com.“We created chances in the first half to score, but today the efficiency was not good for us.“We didn’t concede a lot of chances, but they have good players with quality who scored. We worked for 90 minutes and in our moments we didn’t take our chances.“They scored theirs. Only the first half, I think we were good on the pitch but then sometimes we needed a bit more of the ball to keep possession longer.Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R.

Our planned game, we worked on that. It was poor finishing.”Henrikh Mkhitaryan blew a golden opportunity when he found himself in the Spurs area after trading passes with Aaron Ramsey but could only produce a weak shot against goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.“We had Micki with the one on one [chance early on] and they scored with their first one-on-one,” added Emery.“I am happy with our performance, but not happy with our result. But also I think we are doing our process.“They are ahead of us in this process. We need to continue creating our identity, our strong ideas to be more consistent in the games.”Arsenal will next take on Burnley at the Emirates on Saturday in a Premier League match.last_img read more

Goldson refuses to blame for fatigue for Hibs display

I think people on the outside will look at it and say you have only played 19 league games, and won’t see the full picture.”“We have had 35 games, which is almost like a season in five months. There are a lot of boys in there who wake up with sore legs every single day of the week, and I’m one of them!”“But at the end of the day, it is what we came here for and we know there is no time to moan or no time to be tired and if we want to be successful, we have to win games of football.”Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.The first-half show against Saints is still not satisfactory for the former Brighton defender, who continued:“Today we are happy we got three points and we responded, but it has been a few too many times this season probably where it has taken that at half-time to get back into games or we have started slowly and given the opposition a leg-up in the first-half, especially away from home.”“It is something we have to look at as a whole group and why we are starting slow. Yesterday, I thought we started not bad in the first 15 minutes and then we had a spell of 20 minutes where we were sloppy and giving the ball away.”“Obviously, at our level, I don’t think you can do that and then we gifted them a goal and it was an uphill battle.”last_img read more
