Bill to require schools to teach cursive writing passes Senate

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — A bill amended by Republican state senator from Oldenburg State Sen. Jean Leising that would require Indiana schools to teach cursive writing has passed the Senate by a vote of 31 to 18.With Leising’s amendment, House Bill 1640 would require each school corporation, charter school and accredited nonpublic elementary school to include cursive writing in its curriculum.“Cursive writing was not made a Common Core standard in the past, so numerous schools stopped teaching this valuable skill,” Leising said. “As a result, many of today’s teenagers do not have a signature to validate their driver’s license or sign agreements. People in our community have stressed to me the importance of this skill for years, and I have worked to make it an educational requirement for eight consecutive legislative sessions. If signed by the governor, I believe this bill would greatly benefit our students by strengthening their educational foundations and preparing them for tasks required outside of school.”Leising also noted that within the last year, Illinois, Ohio and Texas have joined the majority of states in requiring the teaching of cursive in elementary school. Many private schools in Indiana have continued to teach cursive, creating a disparity between public and private schools.HB 1640 will now return to the House of Representatives for further consideration.last_img read more

Galway beckons for Bobowen

first_img The rider’s decision to partner the 8-1 shot looked to have been vindicated when he jumped into the lead at the second-last fence in unison with old-stager Finger Onthe Pulse. There was still work to do, but Dr Newland’s representative maintained an honest gallop to keep at bay Woolcombe Folly, who ran a fine race off joint-top weight, by nine lengths. Dr Newland said: “Sam surprised us (by riding Bobowen) as he was probably the least in form of the three. Bobowen ran a great race. He has a great track record at Market Rasen and that is very important. “That (the Galway Plate) is a possibility. We will see how he comes out of this and whether he gets into the race, which he should with a penalty.” Galaxy Rock, the 5-1 joint-favourite, suffered a fatal fall at the first fence. Press Association The Galway Plate on July 31 could be the next staging post for the Dr Richard Newland-trained seven-year-old after his Listed triumph on a balmy afternoon in Lincolnshire. Jockey Sam Twiston-Davies had the choice of three Dr Newland runners in the showpiece event and rather caught connections on the hop after he opted for the Jim Stewart-owned Bobowen. center_img A trip to Ireland beckons for Bobowen after his stylish victory in the Betfred Summer Plate at Market Rasen.last_img read more

Gunners remain hopeful over Sanchez

first_img The Gunners are keen to bring in some attacking support to lead frontman Olivier Giroud, and have identified the Chile forward as their main summer target, with no move now expected for AC Milan’s Italian striker Mario Balotelli. Press Association Sport understands contact has been made with Barcelona, who are expected to want around £22million for the 25-year-old who is reported to be keen on a move to the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal remain confident Barcelona’s pursuit of Luis Suarez will not hamper their bid to sign Alexis Sanchez from the Spanish giants. Barcelona, meanwhile, want to bring in Uruguay forward Suarez from Liverpool, despite his FIFA worldwide ban, with a fee of nearly £80m said to be on the table, but an offer which could also yet include Sanchez as a make-weight has been suggested. Juventus are another interested party, along with Manchester United. Arsenal, however, are determined they will be able to close the deal, which would be worth around £135,000-a-week to the Chile international, who scored twice in his nation’s run to the last 16 at the World Cup. Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira is also a reported target, rated at up to £24m, but the Gunners already have plenty of cover in that area, having passed up first option on signing former captain Cesc Fabregas back from Barcelona before he signed for Chelsea. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, currently still out in Brazil doing media work, is, however, close to signing Newcastle right-back Mathieu Debuchy. The £12m-rated deal is expected to be concluded once France’s participation at the finals is ended. Debuchy, 28, would offer a Barclays Premier League ready replacement for fellow Frenchman Bacary Sagna, who left Arsenal at the end of his contract in the summer for a lucrative free-transfer switch to Manchester City. Despite the requirements for reinforcements, Wenger is also aware of the need to utilise the players currently available. French forward Yaya Sanogo impressed in his cameo appearances as Arsenal won the FA Cup at Wembley, while Joel Campbell is likely to be given a chance to impress when the majority of the first team squad return to pre-season training next week. The 22-year-old was loaned out to Olympiacos last season and had promising displays leading the Costa Rica attack in Brazil. With the summer departure of Nicklas Bendtner finally confirmed, Wenger may be down in numbers, but the Gunners boss also understands the difficulties of having two young forwards playing back-up to what would be a first-choice pairing of Giroud and Sanchez. Speaking at the end of last season, Wenger appeared relaxed about Arsenal’s likely summer transfer activity. “From my experience the World Cup years have always been very quiet until the end of the World Cup, with no players reachable. Everybody is focused in the country on their national team and there is not a lot happening because people are away,” he said. “I believe this year again you will have to wait until July 15 to start going. “The main thing for us will be to keep the stability because we feel we are close, we want to add something that makes us even stronger, but number wise, it will not be massive.” England forward Theo Walcott, meanwhile, is expected to be on schedule for his recovery from a serious knee injury which ruled him out of the World Cup, and is pencilled in for an early autumn return. Arsenal are also on the look out for goalkeeper cover to back-up Wojciech Szczesny. Fellow pole Lukasz Fabianski left on a free transfer to Swansea and Italian Emiliano Viviano is coming to the end of his loan spell. Espanyol’s Kiko Casilla is said to be on Wenger’s radar, while the Arsenal manager is also a long-term admirer of Real Madrid veteran Iker Casillas. Arsenal will head out to the United States at the end of the month for a warm-up match against the New York Red Bulls and former captain Thierry Henry. However, those players from the French and German squads who were on extended World Cup duty will not be required to travel. The Gunners will then finalise their preparations for the new campaign by hosting the Emirates Cup on August 2/3 with games against Benfica and Monaco before tackling Manchester City in the FA Community Shield at Wembley.

Ancelotti open to English return

first_img The former Chelsea boss won the Premier League and FA Cup in his first year in charge at Stamford Bridge in 2010 – the Blues’ first ever double – but was sacked by Roman Abramovich a year later. The 55-year-old Italian was then appointed manager of Paris St Germain and won the Ligue 1 title in his second season in charge, before winning the Champions League with Real last year. Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed he would like to return to the Premier League should he leave the Spanish giants before he retires. Despite his controversial exit from Stamford Bridge, Ancelotti still harbours the ambition of once again managing in English football. “I loved England I was very happy at Chelsea,” he told The Sun. “I liked the atmosphere, the supporters. I have the best memories. “I’d like to return. It depends how long this adventure lasts. If it lasts a long time I will retire after it. But if it doesn’t then I will come to England. For sure. “The day I leave Madrid there are two solutions. Either I quit football or I come back to England.” Ancelotti, who also denied reports that he was approached to succeed both Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes as Manchester United manager, is open to a return to Chelsea but doubts that such a move would materialise. “No, I don’t think Abramovich will change his mind. I know he did with (Jose) Mourinho. As I said I have no problem with Abramovich. “They were two beautiful years. But it’s not about a particular club, it’s about the atmosphere. “But I don’t say no. I certainly wouldn’t say no.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
