This story about federal school funding was produced byThe Hechinger Report, a nonprofit, independent news organization focused on inequality and innovation in education. It’s time to deliver.”Should it be approved, the federal school funding he’s proposing could become a steady stream that’s nearly impossible to take back, meaning a huge change in federal control over local schools. Morrison, the district’s CFO, does not think the answer is more federal school funding. Meanwhile, Republicans have been far more likely to call for the elimination of the federal Department of Education than for its expansion. Federal school funding has waxed and waned over the last 40 years depending on who is in the White House.

We have no idea so far whether the house we left was also bombed," she added, describing her race for shelter. Hamas says it has a right to protest against the occupation of Palestinian land and seeks an independent nation. Neither side has shown any sign of easing up in the conflict that erupted on Monday, and Israeli forces have massed on the border. For some residents of Gaza, particularly those in the north, that was a signal to move.

Malian woman gives birth to nine babies

A Malian woman gave birth to nine babies on Tuesday - two more than doctors had detected inside her crowded womb - joining a small pantheon of mothers of nonuplets. The pregnancy of Halima Cisse, 25, has fascinated the West African nation and attracted the attention of its leaders. When doctors in March said Cisse needed specialist care, authorities flew her to Morocco, where she gave birth. Cisse was expected to give birth to seven babies, according to ultrasounds conducted in Morocco and Mali that missed two of the siblings. Medical complications in multiple births of this kind often mean that some of the babies do not reach full term.

Somalia's newly-elected President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmajo addresses lawmakers after winning the vote at the airport in Somalia's capital Mogadishu, on February 8, 2017. REUTERS/Feisal Omar/File PhotoSupporters of Somalia's President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed and those opposed to the extension of his four-year term clashed on Sunday on the streets of the capital, residents said. "There is gunfire between pro-opposition military and government forces at Fagah Junction," Halima Osman, a resident of Fagah in Mogadishu, said after Reuters witnesses heard gunshots erupt in capital. A Reuters witness saw four military vehicles positioned in one place in the Fagah area. Somalia's lower house of parliament passed legislation to extend Mohamed's tenure by up to two years, although the decision was rejected by the upper chamber.

LONDON — Nine minutes on a Minneapolis street last May sparked a long, defiant summer of protests across the world. Now, as the first trial in George Floyd's death is underway, an official U.K. report on racial inequality that was ordered in its wake has triggered fresh anger and demands for change. The report was conducted by an independent Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities, nine of whose 10 members were Black. The report found that overt and outright racism did persist, particularly online, and acknowledged that Britain was not yet a "post-racial society" of equal opportunity. "The government appears completely unable to acknowledge or even show any empathy for the incidence of racism in the U.K.," Begum said by email.

“Put simply we no longer see a Britain where the system is deliberately rigged against ethnic minorities,” Tony Sewell, the commission’s chairman, said in a foreword to the report. “The impediments and disparities do exist, they are varied, and ironically very few of them are directly to do with racism. While the Tories (Conservatives) pat themselves on the back, their report just sets back the clock on ending racial inequality even further,” Labour lawmaker Bell Ribeiro-Addy said on Twitter. The country had come a long way in 50 years and “the success of much of the ethnic minority population in education and, to a lesser extent, the economy, should be regarded as a model for other white-majority countries”, the commission said. It put forward 24 recommendations including ending the use of the BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) acronym because of the differences in experience of minorities.

MOGADISHU (Reuters) - Somalia cut diplomatic relations with neighbouring Kenya on Tuesday, accusing it of meddling in politics as protests and gunfire erupted in the capital Mogadishu over delayed elections. FILE PHOTO: Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed, President of Somalia, attends the London Somalia Conference' at Lancaster House, May 11, 2017. “Somalia calls back all its diplomats from Kenya and orders Kenyan diplomats to leave Somalia within seven days,” Somali Information Minister Osman Dube told the state news agency. Also last year, Kenya recalled its ambassador after Mogadishu decided to auction disputed oil and gas exploration blocks at sea. Demonstrators denounced President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed - usually known by his nickname “Farmaajo” (cheese) - over delayed votes for both houses of parliament.

Even in Britain, where more detailed data on race and ethnicity is available, there is debate over the root causes of higher infections among certain groups. In the United States, ethnicity data allowed authorities to identify that rates of HIV/AIDS were growing significantly faster among African Americans and Hispanics than the general population, prompting the development of targeted programmes to reduce infection in these groups. In France, government spokeswoman Sibeth Ndiaye called for the debate on ethnicity data to be revisited, but was rebuffed by the president’s office. Mortality for those born in sub-Saharan Africa increased 114% in 2020 compared with 22% for French-born residents, the data showed. EPICOV, the country’s nationwide study on coronavirus infection, provides data on cases among first and second-generation immigrants.
