Still without distance learning plan, parents coalition tells SCUSD, teachers union ‘no more politicking’

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — A newly-formed parents coalition says it is fed up with a labor impasse between the Sacramento City Unified School District and the teachers union that is hampering their children’s education.

Parents joined with community and business groups, as well as other unions, to demand talks between SCUSD and the teachers union happen twice a week or more.

“Every other district in the state has an agreement on distance learning,” said parent Daniel Conway. “Here in Sacramento, we’re somehow a month and a half into the school year and we’re still without one.”

The Sacramento City Teachers Association told FOX40 that its members are still showing up for work and doing what they feel is safe.

The district says it had to adopt a distance learning plan without a union agreement after the union declared an impasse in talks.

Global Economy’s Recovery Hinges on Stimulus, Virus Battle, Officials Say | Investing News

By David Lawder and Jan Strupczewski

WASHINGTON/BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Global finance leaders on Tuesday said the world economy had escaped a coronavirus-triggered collapse so far, but warned that failure to conquer the pandemic, maintain stimulus and tackle mounting debt among poor nations could crush a fragile recovery.

At the start of the annual meetings of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank, the IMF issued slightly improved growth forecasts spurred by unexpectedly stronger rebounds from coronavirus lockdowns in the wealthiest countries and China.

The IMF said it now expected global gross domestic product to shrink 4.4% in 2020, compared to the 5.2% contraction it predicted in June, when business closures were at their peak. Some $12 trillion in stimulus supplied largely by advanced economies limited the damage, but poor countries and other emerging market economies faced a worsening picture, the global lender said.

“The story is less dire than we

JPMorgan, Citigroup Signal That Economy Isn’t Out of the Woods

A curious thing happened in the middle of the coronavirus crisis: America’s biggest bank posted a higher profit than it did a year ago, before the pandemic ravaged the economy.

Taken together, the two banks’ third-quarter results show that businesses and consumers held up surprisingly well in the months since the pandemic plunged the U.S. into recession. But the leaders of both banks warned that the economy isn’t out of the woods.

The results were boosted because the banks didn’t have to put aside as much money to cover future loan losses. But executives said they haven’t yet changed their views that significant losses are looming in the future. They continue to hold large reserves for potential losses and predicted that next year unemployment would remain high and more customers could start defaulting on their loans.

JPMorgan Chief Executive James Dimon warned that without more public assistance for the economy,

“We live in an attention economy. And attention equals power. And we still, as a country, have not fully been able to reckon with what that means.”

That’s what Nancy Gibbs says in the first 30 seconds of “Enemies of the People,” an hour-long documentary premiering on Vice TV this week.

The film shows how candidate Donald Trump soaked up attention in 2015 and 2016. As president, he has certainly continued to exploit the “attention economy” dynamic. But there are limits. He isn’t garnering as many eyeballs
