Still, priority will go to students whose parents are essential workers or Department of Education staff. Those who live in temporary or public housing as well. Students who have disabilities.

I assume most of you have never stepped foot inside the U. S Department of Education and I can report you haven't missed much. Schools, she argued, should be controlled locally, so divorce work to undo federal oversight that she saw as overreach. She scrapped protections for transgender students, as well as guidance meant to stop discriminatory school discipline. She will be remembered for the ways that she sought to undermine our civil rights laws and make school a more difficult place to be for Children from marginalized backgrounds. Liz King of the Liberal leaning Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, says these early moves are likely to be undone by a Biden administration, unlike the work to Boston around campus, sexual assault and harassment. Students were subjected to sexual misconduct deserve deliberate and decisive action that carries the force of law that was divorce, announcing new protections for victims and perpetrators of campus sexual assault again, Liz King, it communicated to survivors that they should not expect to be believed.

Government has never made anything better or cheaper. More effective or more efficient. And nowhere is that more true than in education. But devices rhetoric didn't sit well with the folks who work in America's public schools, teachers and other educators. They found their voice in that moment because they realize that they were under threat.

But a painful absence of vital care for months that could set them back for years. Cory Turner NPR news Suppose you took a slice of the Atlantic Ocean like a slice of pie and found how much plastic is in the water. NPR's Rebecca Hirscher reports on people who did that. Humans love plastic, And when our toothpaste tubes and surgical masks and car fenders reach the ends of their relatively short lives with us, they begin the rest of their very long lives as trash and a lot of that plastic pollution is really tiny. Some too small to see with the naked eye nature does his job catsup Robert Sava is an ocean bio geochemist at the National Oceanography Centre in the UK and she says the ocean is really good at making big pieces of plastic small You have sunlight that breaks down the plus states. You have wave action. You have abrasion. And those tiny bits eventually make it back to us humans in our air, our water and our food, But scientists still don't know exactly how much so called micro plastic is in the ocean. There have been rough estimates. It was about a thing between five and 12 million on when the global ocean just in 2010. But when scientists added up all the plastic on the surface of the ocean, there was a lot less than they expected, which Robert Sava says is not good news. It just means it's somewhere else. If we're missing 99% off the plastic the way thought we have put in. It has to be somewhere. On previously indicated that there is a lot of plastic that was present at the seabed already. And if there's plastic on the surface and all the way at the bottom of the ocean on the seabed, there's probably plastic in between so poverty off his team gathered water from the top 200 m of the Atlantic Ocean toe look for types of plastics that are used in packaging. And they found a gigantic amount of plastic hanging out below the surface way more than the previous estimates would suggest they published their findings in the journal Nature Communications, Robert Sava says it's bad news. For one thing. It's yet more evidence that animals are eating plastic and as they got those small organisms are eaten up by Big officials, for example, which we ultimately eat. It means that human beings will be saving a lot more contaminants. The new study also suggests what many scientists have suspected for years that humans are putting a lot more plastic into the ocean. Then we think we are and that plastic is staying in the water for a long, long time. Rebecca Hirscher. NPR NEWS It's NPR news. And this is WN. Stay tuned up Next news headlines Alternate side..
