Orange County Public School Board wants education bill vetoed

first_img 1 COMMENT Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 TAGSOrange County Public School Board Previous articleWater management district focused on HOA’s during shortageNext articleFriends to the bitter end: A recipe for political disaster? Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR I guess the Florida Lottery money is not enough to help support the schools??? Ha! Give the schools more money and what do they do? Waste it, is what they do! The school system is a bottomless pit, and they are never ever satisfied with the funding, no matter how much cash is thrown their way. Sorry, but that is how I see it. There are OTHER areas in the state budget that need more money too other than schools…… The only thing that makes me mad, is the GOP trying to dismantle the public school system, and giving taxpayers funds to private charter schools that have hardly any oversight. I am tired of the Republicans being critical of the public school system! Reply Please enter your comment! Mama Mia Share on Facebook Tweet on Twittercenter_img  Superintendent Barbara Jenkins writes open letter to Governor Scott The Orange County School Board and Superintendent Barbara Jenkins have officially asked Governor Rick Scott to veto HB 7069 and the Florida Education Finance Program (FEFP) portion of the General Appropriations Act. Orange County Public Schools cites: Inadequate average increase statewide of $24.49 (or a 0.34%) per student. This level of funding does not begin to address the basic educational services we are tasked with providing our students. The cut to the Base Student Allocation (“BSA”) of $27.07 per student, would result in funding less than it was ten years ago. This could affect the ability to provide raises for hard working teachers. The current proposal threatens the Title I provision impacting services to support the needs of students in poverty. This would limit the ability of a school district to provide district-wide services such as summer reading programs, tutoring, and parental engagement initiatives. Forcing school districts to share its capital outlay millage with charter schools regardless of the need. This would severely impact a school district’s ability to meet ongoing transportation as well as building and maintenance needs of Florida public schools. The letter to the Governor also suggests options which would actually increase per student funding by 2.2% ($25 million) for Orange County Public Schools for the 2017-18 school year. 1) Eliminating “Schools of Hope” charter school plan and Best and Brightest program which only provides bonuses to certain teachers and not raises for all teachers. 2) Redirecting the $354 million saved from the elimination of the two programs to provide needed educational services and teacher raises. You can read the OCPS letter to the Governor by clicking here. The letter was signed by all eight OCPS board members and Jenkins. District 7 member Christine Moore (whose district includes Apopka), spoke out against the bill. “Opening charter schools in high-poverty communities isn’t the answer,” she said. “These families need additional supports such as a longer school year, incentives for learning, high quality teachers, health services, counseling, food pantries, etc. It is counter productive for some in Tallahassee to call low performing schools “failure factories”. Children need hope and opportunity.” May 18, 2017 at 7:38 am LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply You have entered an incorrect email address!

Paddy Wallace puts in a nice hit on Berrick Barnes

first_imgThursday Jul 3, 2008 Paddy Wallace puts in a nice hit on Berrick Barnes Ulsterman Paddy Wallace put in this great hit on Wallaby center Berrick Barnes in the recent test between Ireland and Australia in Melbourne.While Barnes was a little off balance after the kick and Wallace hit him from the side, the impact was pretty good and it looked great for the fan sitting at home in the comfort and safety of his armchair.Wallace is listed as weighing roughly ten kilograms less than young Barnes. That fact alone makes the hit good to see as we love seeing the little guy step up and take on the bigger challenge. That said, Barnes only weighs 90kg’s so he’s no monster himself.While the game took place a couple of weeks ago, this is one of the clips that we didn’t manage to stick up at the time.

Williams begins epic cycle with Tour de France winner

first_imgWednesday Apr 15, 2020 Williams begins epic cycle with Tour de France winner Wales’ record try scorer Shane Williams has embarked on an epic charity cycle ride today alongside 2018 Tour de France winner Geraint Thomas.ADVERTISEMENTThe former winger has joined Thomas in raising money for the NHS by doing twelve-hour cycling shifts for the next three days from their own homes, with the help of indoor cycling app Zwift.A GoFundMe page has been set up for this campaign by Thomas, with the total raised standing at £85k at the time of writing, and still very early in the ride.It is also possible to log on to Zwift and join him on his course.After retiring from international rugby in 2011, Williams continued to play for the Ospreys and Japanese outfit Mitsubishi Dynaboars until 2014, but has since competed in Ironman Wales alongside Gareth Thomas.ADVERTISEMENTWith that said, 36 hours of cycling across three days is still a Herculean task for any athlete, including a professional cyclist.Williams is not the first person within the rugby world to raise money for charity during the coronavirus pandemic, as his 2008 Grand Slam triumph winning captain, Ryan Jones, recently completed a marathon in his garden.The duo have been providing updates on social media, and will continue to do so over the course of the next three days.

Yet in opposition to many of the newer large scale and overly complex projects with generic building materials typically being constructed in the neighborhood recently, this project is a smaller, lower profile and more interpretive piece of architecture that respects the contextual urban form of its’ neighbors. It has a simple and refined palette of high quality materials consisting of handmade brick, walnut, plaster, and glass. In its urban setting with no large dominant views to the exterior, the house turns inwards toward the interior courtyard & pool with a connection to nature by focusing upwards on the sky.

instaGiv launches tool to collect opted-in donor name and address details from mobile text campaigns

first_img About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 22 May 2015 | News The Eve Appeal ran a smaller and more targeted campaign and achieved a 70% response rate.iAddress works in full compliance with mobile regulations and is an innovative addition to the portfolio of services that instaGiv uses to deliver cost effective text fundraising and engagement solutions to the charity sector.How does it work?iAddress enables charities to add an invitation in a post-donation thank you response text, asking the donor to text their name and postcode directly to the charity. Address verification technology checks the postcode and confirms the address with the donor via a bounce-back text for 100% accuracy.Iain Williams, director of instaGiv explained why the company has developed this tool. He said:“As text communication becomes an increasingly agile and flexible route to supporter engagement and fundraising, iAddress enhances the channel’s potential for donor acquisition and ongoing relationships. By adding this function to text campaigns we’re enabling charities to do so much more than fundraising appeals for one-off donations. Creative and engaging campaigns raise funds and can now quickly and very simply grow your supporter base for ongoing communications via phone, text and post for fully integrated fundraising and donor stewardship programmes.” Charity mobile text specialists instaGiv have created iAddress to help charities instantly verify and collect opted-in donor name and address data via their text message campaigns.As well as ensuring data provided by donors is accurate, iAddress also helps charities manage this data be integrating it within their supporter database or CRM system.Data collected via iAddress is owned by the charity and can be downloaded into prepared opted-in mailing lists at any time. InstaGiv say that iAddress “works in full compliance with mobile regulations”.Who is using iAddress?iAddress has already been piloted for Macmillan Cancer Support and The Eve Appeal, achieving levels of response of up to 70%.Macmillan used it to support a DRTV campaign launched at Christmas 2014. Text donations were followed up by a call centre but for donors that could not be reached by a phone call, Macmillan used an iAddress text that resulted in more than half of those donors returning accurate name and address information.Macmillan’s Andrea Jones, Individual Marketing Function Manager-Acquisition Dialogue, said:“As part of the Macmillan Christmas Star Appeal we used iAddress to contact supporters who we previously hadn’t been able to speak with over the phone. It meant we were able to capture correct postal addresses and make sure that they received their Christmas Star on time. We experienced over a response of over 50% and were able to add these individuals to our supporter database.” Advertisement Tagged with: data mobilecenter_img instaGiv launches tool to collect opted-in donor name and address details from mobile text campaigns  39 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Lucy Gonzales Parsons: ‘more dangerous than 1,000 rioters’

first_imgReprinted from April 30, 2017 at workers.orgIt is fitting to honor the fighting spirit of Lucy Gonzales Parsons on May Day — International Workers Day — since she was one of its founders in 1886. Parsons was a woman of African, Mexican and Indigenous descent who was born into slavery in Texas in 1853.She and her spouse, Albert Parsons, were forced to leave Texas due to miscegenation decrees that outlawed interracial marriages. Albert was white and helped register formerly enslaved Black people to vote during Reconstruction.They moved to Chicago, an emerging industrial center during the 1870s where the battles between the mainly immigrant working class and the bosses were emerging; where working conditions were intolerable because there were virtually no collective bargaining contracts; where workers were worn down like machinery by profit-hungry capitalists.In 1877, a major railroad strike helped lay the basis for the national fight for the eight-hour day, a goal that would come to the forefront nine years later.Lucy Parsons emerged as an important labor leader along with Albert, who became a Haymarket Square martyr. She was declared by the Chicago police as “more dangerous than a thousand rioters.”A supporter of anarchist and anti-racist causes, she defended Sacco and Vanzetti, two Italian anarchists falsely accused of murder who were executed, and the Scottsboro Brothers, nine Black youth framed for the rape of two white women in Alabama.She was one of two women, the other being Mary Harris “Mother” Jones, who founded the Industrial Workers of the World. The union welcomed all workers, regardless of nationality, religion, gender or skill, into its ranks.Lucy was a fierce anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist, and above all else, a socialist, who wanted to empower the workers through revolution. Below is an excerpt from a speech she gave in 1905 at an IWW convention:“We, the women of this country, have no ballot even if we wished to use it, and the only way that we can be represented is to take a man to represent us. You men have made such a mess of it in representing us that we have not much confidence in asking you. …“We [women] are the slaves of slaves. We are exploited more ruthlessly than men. Whenever wages are to be reduced the capitalist class use women to reduce them, and if there is anything that you men should do in the future it is to organize the women. …“Now, what do we mean when we say revolutionary Socialist?“We mean that the land shall belong to the landless, the tools to the toiler, and the products to the producers. … I believe that if every man and every woman who works, or who toils in the mines, mills, the workshops, the fields, the factories and the farms of our broad America should decide in their minds that they shall have that which of right belongs to them, and that no idler shall live upon their toil … then there is no army that is large enough to overcome you, for you yourselves constitute the army. …“My conception of the strike of the future is not to strike and go out and starve, but to strike and remain in and take possession of the necessary property of production. …“Let us sink such differences as nationality, religion, politics and set our eyes eternally and forever toward the rising star of the industrial republic of labor; remembering that we have left the old behind and have set our faces toward the future. There is no power on earth that can stop men and women who are determined to be free at all hazards. There is no power on earth so great as the power of intellect. It moves the world and it moves the earth. …“I hope even now to live to see the day when the first dawn of the new era of labor will have arisen, when capitalism will be a thing of the past, and the new industrial republic, the commonwealth of labor, shall be in operation.”Source of speech: Minutes of 1905 IWW Convention in Chicago, Tamiment Library of New York University’s Bobst Library.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
