He has changed his approach and philosophies to help his young team meld.Kerr does not just consult his playbook, game footage or various mentors.

Opinion: Charles Barkley's 'joke' wasn't funny, and neither was his defense of it

  Opinion: Charles Barkley's 'joke' wasn't funny, and neither was his defense of it One in three female homicide victims is killed by an intimate partner, and domestic-related murders are rising after almost four decades of decline. There is an untold psychological toll for both abuse victims and their families, as well as an economic one. Each year, according to the NCADV, domestic violence costs the U.S. economy between $5.8 billion and $12.6 billion.So, no. Domestic violence, and the general health and safety of women, is not something that is ever funny. When women are very literally used as punching bags every day, making that abuse a punchline is simply obscene.

A Texas elementary school art teacher who was suspended from her school after discussing her sexual orientation in the classroom is suing her Stacy Bailey, who has taught at Charlotte Anderson Elementary since 2008 and has been named Teacher of the Year twice, filed the lawsuit on Friday

A Texas teacher who admitted to having sex repeatedly with her 13-year-old student and got pregnant with his child has been sentenced to 10 years in prison. The former Aldine teacher , who has a six-year-old daughter, had admitted to having a sexual relationship with one of her eighth grade students.

“The court’s ruling is loud and clear,” he said. “The Constitution prohibits schools from discriminating against LGBT folks.”

Bailey, who received exemplary reviews and was twice voted teacher of the year at the elementary school, was put on paid administrative leave for about eight months in 2017-18 after a parent complained that she was “promoting the ‘homosexual agenda’” to students at Charlotte Anderson Elementary School in Arlington.

At issue was a “Get to Know Your Teacher” slide show from 2017 where Bailey showed pictures to her students, including one of her then-fiancee, now wife, Julie Vasquez. She also showed pictures of her dog, friends and parents.

Bailey’s supporters repeatedly asked the Mansfield school district to let her return to her students at Charlotte Anderson. And advocates of LGBT rights asked the school board to rework its anti-discrimination and anti-bullying policies by adding several terms: “sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression.”

More U.S. children die in mass shootings at home than at school -study

  More U.S. children die in mass shootings at home than at school -study Three out of four U.S. children and teenagers killed in mass shootings over the past decade were victims of domestic violence and generally died in their homes, according to a study   released on Thursday by the gun control group Everytown.While the specter of school shootings looms darkly in the minds of American parents who remember massacres in Newtown, Connecticut; Parkland, Florida, and around the country, the group's review of shootings from 2009 through 2018 found that far more children were killed in their own homes.

A Texas teacher has filed a lawsuit alleging she was put on leave and transferred after showing her According to the lawsuit , a school district official met Bailey and told her: “You can’t promote your lifestyle in During her tenure with the district, there has never been an issue with her open sexual

Sexual orientation discrimination is a quickly changing area of law . In addition to having grounds for a civil rights lawsuit on the basis of sex discrimination , other causes of action that may arise from sexual orientation discrimination include negligent or intentional infliction of emotional distress

“I am so appreciative of the support from the students, parents, faculty and community,” Bailey said. “They stood up and spoke for me when I was silenced and they gave me the courage to stand up for myself and my family.”

After Bailey asked school leaders to create stronger protections for LGBT students and employees, she was put on paid administrative leave. She also was accused of trying to indoctrinate youths.

Eventually the district renewed Bailey’s teaching contract, but moved her from an elementary school to Lake Ridge High School, where she still teaches art.

“While on administrative leave, Bailey’s career was damaged by limiting her advancement, eligibility for promotions, and pay raises,” the lawsuit stated.

Beyond that, Bailey claimed Mansfield school officials “imposed a stigma on her, making it more difficult to obtain future employment in other school districts, especially as an elementary school teacher.”

Bailey’s lawsuit was filed last year and the school district filed a motion to dismiss it.

This new ruling was in response to the Mansfield school district’s request. The superintendent may appeal the ruling; the school district may not.

“There is no job-related justification for placing Bailey on an eight-month administrative leave and then not allowing her to return as an elementary school teacher at Charlotte Anderson Elementary School,” the ruling stated.

“Further, the court concludes that Mansfield I.S.D. has failed to argue persuasively how Bailey’s sexual orientation bears any rational relationship to her competency as an elementary school teacher, or her job performance as an elementary school teacher.”
